Manchester City travel to Real Madrid for the second leg of their Champions League semi-final brought to you live on Kilamiti.
It was a semi-final first leg that will be forever burned into the retinas of football fans worldwide as City and Real went hammer and tongs at the Etihad in a seven-goal thriller. Pep Guardiola’s men ultimately triumphed 4-3 on the night, taking a one-goal cushion to the Bernabeu, but having led by two goals on three occasions, he may be the unhappier of both managers.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men played with a never-say-die mentality, and bring this second leg back to their sacred home knowing they have the capacity and temperament to turn a tie on its head.
And there’s one Liverpool man that will be hoping Real Madrid do manage to turn things around. While the 2018 Champions League final is often remembered for Gareth Bale’s wonderful overhead kick, or Loris Karius’ unfortunate error, but before all of that happened Mohamed Salah had to come off injured after a clash with Sergio Ramos.
Although Salah and Liverpool would go on to win the Champions League in 2019, there may be a feeling of unfinished business with Real Madrid – and the Egyptian has his eyes set on a rematch.
“I want to play Real Madrid,” he told reporters after Liverpool’s 5-2 aggregate win over Villarreal.
“I have to be honest. If you’re asking me personally, I want to play Madrid.”
