Champions League return: Real Madrid could play City August 7

The fans are eager to see the UEFA Champions League return to their screens and this could make the light of day soonest.

 

Real Madrid could play the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 clash with Manchester City after the scheduled date for the second leg was postponed due to the current pandemic.

 

The two teams could square up against each other in an encounter that would determine who qualifies for the next round.

 

According to Lyon President quoted by Bernabeau Digital, the Los Blancos could play Manchester City on August 7 or 8.

 

Recall, Manchester City won the first leg by 2-1, putting the Spaniards on a hot seat ahead of the return leg.

 

The club could kick off their La Liga campaign in June and will use that as a preparatory for the all-important game with the Citizens.

 

But the problem still lies, UEFA is yet to release a new calendar for all the rescheduled matches.

 

How Real Madrid will approach the game

Zinedine Zidane and his boys will approach the game as if it is another Champions League final.

 

However, losing the first leg with just two goals, the Los Blancos only need a single goal to put themselves through to the next round.

 

Hopefully, Eden Hazard, Karim Benzema and Luka will have their ‘A’ game if they are available for the tie.
