It’s go time for two of the best soccer squads in the world. Real Madrid, the team featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, 31, will take on Manchester United in a clash that will determine who plays Atletico Madrid for in the Champions League finals! With so much at stake, this game might be one of the best in the game’s history!
The pressure is definitely on Real Madrid as they host Man City on May 4. The Sky Blues will travel to Santiago Bernabeau in Madrid, Spain for the second game in the Champions League semifinal. After playing to a heartbreaking tie, it’s “now or never” for both teams. The action kicks off at 2:45 P.M. EST. After taking a quick gander at some of the hot competition (and the hotter players) get ready for some of the sport’s best to take the field.
While watching gorgeous players get hot and sweaty in Spain might sound like a dream, it’s going to be torture for Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane, 43, because he’s expecting an intense standoff. “This [game] will be very, very, very difficult,” the coach told The Guardian. “We won’t score two goals in 15 minutes. We will suffer for 90 minutes…or 120.” Show your support for Real Madrid by getting an official scarf here.
Cristiano, who sat out the first game, will return to transform those 90 minutes of suffering into something like “seven minutes in heaven.” After all, he’s the player who pulled off a brilliant hat trick during Real’s battle with Wolfsburg. He even embarrassed his bitter rival, Lionel Messi, 28, during El Clasico with Barcelona. Hopefully, Cristiano’s crush Kendall Jenner, 20, is watching when he returns to the pitch and does his best to score.
While Cristiano may focus on leading his squad to victory, Man City’s coach, Manuel Pellegrini, 62, says his team won’t be solely focused on Cristiano. “We must work as a team defending and attacking,” he said. “It is not just against Ronaldo but against Real Madrid.” You can show off your Man City pride by getting an official jersey here.
The team that advances will face Atletico Madrid in the final. Though Atletico lost the match with Bayern Munich, 2-1, per the BBC, the Germans needed to score three goals to make it to the championship game. Will we get a Madrid vs. Madrid final, or will Man City turn Cristiano’s dreams of Champions League glory into a nightmare?
