Manchester City finally take on Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie at the Etihad Stadium on Friday, a match postponed from March.
Here, the PA news agency takes a look at some talking points ahead of the game.
Tie in the balance
City with point to prove
Winning without Messi and Ronaldo
Kevin De Bruyne, who scored and set up City’s other goal in the first leg, will be the man Real fear most after an outstanding season. Raheem Sterling, who appeared to be attracting interest from Real earlier in the year, is another potential dangerman. City will want to shut down the supply lines to Karim Benzema, who has flourished since Ronaldo’s departure and has scored 26 goals this season. In terms of external factors, Real can call on plenty of big-game experience having won the competition four times in the past six seasons. With the game also being played behind closed doors, City will have no fans to back them. City might at least feel in better touch having last played a fortnight ago compared to three weeks for Real.
