It will undoubtedly be a very interesting semifinal between two strong teams from the continent, and current leaders of their local leagues. On the one hand, the locals have just won 5-1 in the Premier League against Watford. In the quarterfinals they had a difficult series against Atletico Madrid, playing a great first leg, but being very uncomfortable and far from their level in the second. We will have to see what version of the "Citizens" will be seen in these two games.
On the other side will be Real Madrid, who for La Liga beat Osasuna 3-1 in their last game. Their quarter-final series was one of the most exciting in this UEFA Champions League, beating Chelsea 3-1 in England but losing by the same result in Spain. In extra time, Karim Benzema gave the pass to the semifinals to the "Merengues". The Madrid team has proven to be very irregular, sometimes having excellent games and other disastrous ones.
