Real Madrid to dedicate their contract against the Manchester blue and their European dominance, and City, the home side and the fans, to pay back the debt and get closer to the first step on the way to achieving the historic treble.

Etihad Stadium in the English city of Manchester will host tomorrow, Wednesday, the summit of the second leg of the semi-finals of the Champions League, when Real Madrid, the Spanish champion and record holder of the record by winning it, will be a guest of Manchester City, looking for its first title in the tournament.

City, who were looking in the first leg for revenge after last season's exit against Real, still retain hope of achieving the achievement and crossing from the royal team in the second leg.

The first leg, which took place at the Santiago Bernabéu, ended in a positive draw with a goal to a goal... Vinicius Jr. gave Real the lead, with Kevin De Bruyne equalizing for City.

Guardiola's battalion will try not to repeat the scenario of last season and settle things from the beginning, armed with the ground factor and the public, as City won all 14 of their home games in 2023, and the attacking force this season led by the Norwegian goal machine Haaland, the top scorer in the tournament this season so far with 12 goals.

Can Manchester City repeat United's feat?

Manchester City are fighting this season on three fronts, as we mentioned earlier they are aiming to get past Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals and move closer and closer to their first title.

At the level of the English league, City is very close to winning its fifth title in six years at the expense of Arsenal, while it will face Manchester United in the final of the English Cup on the third of next June.

Will City be able to repeat the feat of arch-rivals Manchester United in 1999 when they achieved the historic treble? The Real match will be the gateway to getting closer to that.

Ancelotti is counting on the remarkable brilliance this season for Brazilian striker Vinicius Jr. and the presence of French veteran Karim Benzema, Croatian playmaker Luka Modric and decisive Brazilian Rodrygo, who scored last season's historic goals against City, to dedicate the royal knot in the semi-finals against Manchester Blue and coach Guardiola.
