They look like the better team but will not have Sergio Ramos because he got a red card in the 1st leg back at the Santiago Bernabeu. It should be interesting to see how both teams come out at the start of the game.
City recorded an impressive victory when the pair met at the Bernabeu back in February, meaning that Madrid have plenty to do if they are to advance to the quarter-finals of the competition once again.
