Manchester City will be looking to seal their place in the Champions League quarter-finals as they host Real Madrid on Friday.

The first leg back in February ended 2-1 to the Premier League side, but since the restart they have shown uneven form at times.

Real Madrid, by contrast, went on a 10-game win streak to claim the title in La Liga, before a draw on the last day of the season.

It promises to be the must-watch tie of the round, ahead of the last eight and beyond being held in Lisbon, Portugal.
