Manchester City vs Real Madrid: Official lineups

Manchester City will be looking to make the most of their home advantage when they host Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie on Wednesday evening.

The match is finely poised after a 3-3 draw in the first leg at the Bernabeu, and the winner will take a huge step towards reaching the semi-finals.

City manager Pep Guardiola has named a strong team, with Kyle Walker returning at right-back and Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden both starting. Bernardo Silva and Jack Grealish will provide width, while Erling Haaland will lead the line.

Real Madrid will be without suspended midfielder Aurélien Tchouaméni, but they have been boosted by the return of Nacho to the starting lineup. Éder Militão is ruled out with a muscle injury, so Nacho will partner Antonio Rüdiger in central defence.

Casemiro is also unavailable, so Eduardo Camavinga and Fede Valverde will start alongside Toni Kroos in midfield. Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema are ruled out through injury, so Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr. will start up front.


Manchester City: Ederson – Walker (cap.), Dias, Akanji, Gvardiol – Rodri, De Bruyne – B. Silva, Foden, Grealish – Haaland

Real Madrid:  Lunin – Carvajal, Nacho (cap.), Rüdiger, Mendy – Valverde, Camavinga, Kroos – Bellingham – Rodrygo, Vinicius
