With a UEFA cloud hanging over Pep Guardiola's side, the hosts will be keen to take advantage in the first leg

Real Madrid welcome Manchester City to Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday as the two sides fight it out in the Champions League last 16.

The game takes place in the context of a bitter argument between City and UEFA, following the Premier League club's two-year ban from European competition.

Of course, it is also a return to a familiar battleground for Pep Guardiola, who rekindles a rivalry with Los Blancos having faced them many times during his playing and coaching career with Barcelona.

Despite ongoing issues with UEFA, Man City remain favourites to win this season's Champions League, but they face a serious test when they take to the field in the Spanish capital.
