Zinedine Zidane’s men will miss the services of captain Sergio Ramos who was sent off in the last minutes of the first-leg.His gap will be filled by Eder Militao who will partner with Raphael Varane at Madrid’s defence.
Gareth Bale was left-out of Zidane’s 24-man squad proving his relations with Zidane are not good at all.

The playmaker later made an assist to Gabriel Jesus who headed past Courtois.
Zinedine Zidane’s men will look to stage an upset based on their recent form since the restart.Real Madrid won 9 straight games snatching the Laliga title from rivals Barcelona as they displayed great form since the restart.
Manchester City on the other hand have hit 4 or more goals past their recent opponents displaying a wonderful run of form.However,Man City have lost to Southampton,Chelsea and recently to Arsenal in the FA cup semi final.
Real Madrid now are different team from the one that lost the first-leg meaning Man City should be cautious even though they hold an advantage.
Here’s what the managers had to say:
Pep Guardiola, City coach: “It was a long time ago that we played the first leg. We knew after the game we would have another here at home. It is without our [fans] but we will try to have a good game. We want to win this competition for sure. We have to beat Madrid and teams like Madrid if we want to win. I have the feeling today that we are ready to play the game tomorrow and have a good performance and win the game. That is my feeling. We are ready.”
Zinédine Zidane, Madrid coach: “I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow, but it’s going to be a good match between two very good teams, and that’s the most important thing. There are four finals if we want to go all the way, and this is the first one. The important thing is that we’re all fit, because we’ve had ten days to prepare for the match. Hazard is fine”.
