Michael Owen has given his prediction for the upcoming match between Manchester City and Real Madrid, backing City to beat the opponents.

The two sides are set to face each other in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final. The winner of the two legs will face Liverpool or Villarreal in the final of the European top tier.

“What a tie this should be! City were impressive at the weekend, and they’ll enter this with some confidence. We all know how desperate City are to win the Champions League, I’m expecting a good performance,” Owen said about the upcoming match, via Sportskeeda. 

“Real have done so well to get to this round, but I’m not entirely sure how they’ve done it. Chelsea had plenty of chances to knock them out in the quarters, I don’t think City will be as wasteful.”

“I’ll never write off Real in this competition, but I have to favour City. City will keep the ball and I can see them frustrating this Real side. I think Real will score, but I’m going for a 3-1 City win.”
