Manchester City – Real Madrid (22:00, 1: 2 in the first game, Sport 5)
The Citizens will arrive after finishing the season in England without a title, but with a significant advantage thanks to the two foreign goals they scored in the first meeting held in February in Spain. Pep Guardiola’s players know that Real Madrid, which they met almost half a year ago, is not the same team. The Blancos won the Spanish championship and before the game for the record against Leganes, recorded ten consecutive victories, including four away victories.
In a media decision, Real coach Zinedine Zidane decided to remove Gareth Bale from the squad, while Sergio Ramos, who was sent off in the first meeting, will also not take part in the game. At Manchester City the yellow-clad Benjamin Mandy will not be available for Pep Guardiola as well as Sergio Aguero who is still suffering from a knee injury.
Juventus – Lyon (22:00, 1: 0 in the first game, sport 5+)
The old lady finished the season in Serie A with a drop in tension and two consecutive losses, with Maurizio Sari’s team unable to afford to reach complacently for the rematch against the French. Lyon arrive after 120 minutes and a disappointing loss after a penalty shootout in the French League Cup final against Paris Saint-Germain, and will hope to maintain the 0-1 advantage they achieved about five and a half months ago in France. An encouraging statistic for Juventus: In its last 12 home victories it has scored at least two goals, while in seven games out of them – it also does not absorb. Such a result, will buy a sari with both hands.
