Bet Of The Day May 17 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • City last lost a home game in November
  • City have won 18 and drawn four of their last 22 games
  • City are unbeaten in home Champions League games since 2018
  • City have won 22 of their last 24 home Champions League games
  • City have won their last two home Champions League games vs Real Madrid

  • City have conceded in eight of their last 12 games

We’re off to the Champions League for today’s best bet as Man City play host to Real Madrid in a blockbuster second leg clash at the Etihad.

The semi-final is tantalisingly poised at 1-1 following last week’s draw in Madrid, with Vini Jr and Kevin De Bruyne scoring absolute crackers.

We’re backing Man City to win at home with both teams to score for our best of the day.

City have turned it up a notch since the World Cup and haven’t lost a home game since November. Indeed, City have won their last 15 consecutive games at the Etihad, including big wins over RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

City have also won their last two home Champions League games against Real Madrid by 4-3 and 2-1 scores, while they are unbeaten against their Spanish rivals at the Etihad.

Furthermore, City’s Champions League home record is insane – they’ve not lost a match at the Etihad since 2018, winning 22 of their 24 outings.

Overall, City are unbeaten since February with 18 wins and four draws in 22 games. They are the superior side, while Real Madrid can count themselves fortunate to have prevailed in last season’s semi-finals in ridiculous circumstances that surely can’t be repeated.

Madrid aren’t in great form either – they’ve lost recent La Liga games to Girona and Real Sociedad over the last month and were well behind Barcelona in the title race.

Madrid can get on the scoresheet here though – they’ve scored in 15 of their last 16 games, and as mentioned, in their last two trips to the Etihad, both of which ended in defeat.
