Man City vs Real Madrid LIVE: Champions League updates, video

With a trip to the final on the line, Manchester City and Real Madrid will meet in the Champions League knockout stage once again.

City got the better of Real in their last meeting: a pandemic-delayed quarterfinal in 2020 when City scored a pair of 2–1 wins to advance on a 4–2 aggregate. However, Real Madrid eliminated City in the 2016 semifinals on a tight 1–0 aggregate en route to its first of three straight Champions League titles.

The Spanish giants have endured quite the journey to the semifinals — and it they won the final it could be considered one of the most impressive runs of all time.

In the round of 16, a second-half hat trick from Karim Benzema in the second leg erased a 2–0 aggregate deficit and stunned a powerhouse PSG side. Then, in the quarterfinals, Real eliminated defending champion Chelsea in extra time after blowing a 3–1 aggregate lead.
