Real Madrid vs Manchester City Live

Real Madrid and Manchester City will battle in the International Champions Cup on Wednesday 26 July in Los Angeles.

Both sides will be looking to pick up their first wins of the tournament, with City losing 2-0 to Manchester United in their opener and Real losing on penalties to the Red Devils too.

The last time the two clubs met was in May 2016 when a Fernando own goal at the Ethiad was enough to see Real advance through to the Champions League final.

New signing Danilo could make an appearance against his former side as part of a new-look Man City defence that has cost over £120m.

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is still on holiday and won’t be part of the squad.

Here’s all you need to know about Manchester City vs Real Madrid…

When is it?

The match kicks off on Wednesday 27 July at 4.00am BST (Tuesday 25 July 8.00pm Pacific Time)

Where can I watch it?

The match is not being broadcast live in the UK but live streaming.

It’s a big game for…

Ederson Moraes. Manchester City’s solution to Claudio Bravo’s difficult first season was to splash £35m on a new goalkeeper. But Ederson failed to impress in his first performance as a City player as his side fell to a 2-0 defeat against United. The Brazilian looked nervous throughout the game and a moment of indecisiveness cost his side a goal, with Romelu Lukaku capitalising on the mistake. The former Benfica goalkeeper will be hoping for a quieter game as he competes for the No 1 shirt.

Remember when…

Manchester City’s best Champions League campaign came to a rather anticlimactic end in the semi-final against Real Madrid in 2016. City did not look like scoring in the 180 minutes that was played and Fernando’s own goal at the Bernabeu was enough for Madrid to stroll to the final.

Player to watch…
