UCL Semi-final draw: Man City v Madrid, Atletico v Bayern


Real Madrid have been paired with Manchester City in the Champions League semi-finals, while Bayern Munich will have to deal with Atletico Madrid if they are to make it to the final.

Friday’s draw in Nyon means City manager Manuel Pellegrini will take on his former team, having coached Madrid in 2009-10.

Madrid – who saw off Wolfsburg in the last round – made it to the final four in 2014-15, but Juventus eventually proved to too strong. They last won the competition in 2013-14, beating Atletico 4-1 after extra time for their 10th European Cup win.

Manchester City, meanwhile, are the rookies in the semi-finals, having never made it to this stage before. They failed to make it past the round of 16 in 2013-14 and 2014-15, but got the better of Dynamo Kyiv and Paris Saint-Germain to set up a clash with the Spanish giants.

City will host Madrid on April 26 and Atletico welcome Bayern to the Vicente Calderon the following day, returning to the Allianz Arena on May 3, with Zinedine Zidane’s side playing at home on May 4.
