Here is a brief analysis of the English Premier League side Manchester City, which Real Madrid will face in semi-final.

Manchester City

They have made their way to the Champions League semi-final after defeating PSG, who were serious Champions League title contenders this season. It will be the first appearance for them in the semi-final.

Notably, their strength has been in their direct attacking approach. Kevin De Bruyne has been the heart of their attacks. The youngster has impressed in his debut season with Manchester City. Though their defence has been a cause of concern for Pellegrini. The pace that Real Madrid has got upfront in Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema, can easily out-run City’s vulnerable defence.
