Real Madrid v Manchester City Predictions


Manchester City head into the clash off the back of an entertaining 2-2 draw with Roma earlier this week. Once again Manuel Pellegrini opted to field a mixture of youth and experience, but surrendered the lead twice to a resilient Roma side. Record signing Raheem Sterling was handed his City debut and duly scored after a mere two minutes – much to the dismay of the Liverpool fans out there.


Real Madrid and their new manager Rafa Benitez also came up against the same opponent’s last time out, and once again, the draw was the outcome. However, whereas City prevailed in the resulting penalty shootout, Real Madrid didn't fare so well.


Friday's encounter will be the first time the sides have met since the Champions League group stage in the 2012/13 season. Back then, Real Madrid had marginally the better of it after picking up a point at The Etihad and coming back from 2-1 down in the 87th minute to snatch an unlikely 3-2 victory.

As with many of these friendly matches, the line-ups are often key to judging where to place your money. However, based on the results earlier in the competition and the tightly fought matches in 2012, I can see this game ending all square for my football betting tips. Back the draw outright at 14/5 with Bet Victor, and if you're feeling really lucky, the 1-1 correct score with the same bookmaker at 7/1. This result was the most popular to feature in La Liga last season and the second most frequent outcome in the Premier League.


Finally for our usual dip into the goalscoring market, and Gareth Bale endured an afternoon to forget against Roma recently after squandering a handful of opportunities in front of goal that he would normally have done better with. Nevertheless, the Welshman did look sharp and doesn't strike me as someone who lacks confidence in his footballing ability! As well as this, the world record signing has a decent goalscoring record against Manchester City, so should he start, back Bale to score first at 6/1 with Betfred.

My final Manchester City v Real Madrid prediction is for Gareth Bale to score first, the best odds are 6/1 with Betfred.
