UEFA Champions League Semi-final: Man City vs Real Madrid Head-to-Head Statistics

Real Madrid are the ‘European Kings’, having won this trophy 13 times in the past but at the same time they suffered defeats in both of their last two fixtures against Manchester City.

This tie will be the seventh and eighth time that these two face each other, with the record perfectly balanced from the previous six meetings. Both sides have two wins each, and the other two matches were drawn. Meanwhile, the aggregate score from these matches is an even 7-7.

Real Madrid 4-3 Man City (Agg) – 2012

The first clash came back in September 2012 in the Champions League groups stages, and this was by far the most eventful of their matches. Little happened until the 69th minute, when Edin Dzeko put Man City ahead from Yaya Toure’s pass. But this lead lasted just seven minutes, as Marcelo bent home a beautiful equaliser.

With five minutes remaining, the visitors thought they had grabbed the winner when Aleksandar Kolarov’s free kick evaded everyone and crept in at the back post. But just moments later, Karim Benzema drew his side level with a strike at the near post.

Remarkably, this STILL wasn’t the end of the drama. Of course, Cristiano Ronaldo was to have the last laugh, as his dipping effort went through the arms of Joe Hart and into the bottom corner.

The reverse fixture wasn’t anywhere near as dramatic, with the match ending 1-1. Benzema converted early on from Angel Di Maria’s cross, and Sergio Aguero levelled from the spot after Alvaro Arbeloa had brought the Argentine down.

Real Madrid 1-0 Man City (Agg) – 2016

Their most high-profile meeting came four seasons later in the 2015/16 semi-finals. And again, it was Real Madrid who edged it.

There was only one goal across the two legs, with neither side doing much in the way of creativity. The difference came in the 20th minute of the second leg, as Gareth Bale’s cross was diverted into his own net by Fernando. Los Blancos progressed to the final, and defeated local rivals Atletico Madrid on penalties to lift their 11th European title.

Man City 4-2 Real Madrid (Agg) – 2020

But City would get some joy over the La Liga side four years later, when they were drawn against each other in the round of 16. This time, the English club were the ones to make it through.

In a close first leg at the Bernabeu, the hosts took the lead in the second half when Vinicius Junior set up Isco to finish. But a Gabriel Jesus header levelled things up, and De Bruyne’s penalty gave Pep Guardiola’s men the advantage heading to the Etihad Stadium.

And they picked up where they left off early on, taking the lead after just nine minutes through Raheem Sterling. Benzema pulled one back with a header from Rodrygo’s cross, but Jesus got his second of the tie to seal the Cityzens’ progression to the quarter-finals.
