Real Madrid vs Manchester City Prediction

Ronaldo-less Real Madrid played out a goalless draw with Manchester City at Etihad Stadium, but Gareth Bale and Co. missed several clear-cut chances to break the deadlock in the second half of the game. It is more than obvious that Real Madrid are superior to Manchester City and seeing that Cristiano Ronaldo returns to the starting XI, home win appears on the horizon. It is well know that the Citizens struggle on the travels and they are unlikely to spoil Real Madrid’s party at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
