Semi final draw is out.....predictions for who goes through to the final?? I'm going for Real Madrid vs Athletico Madrid— Rio Ferdinand (@rioferdy5) April 15, 2016
Madrid are a better team that City and will head into the semi-final tie against favourites. However, over two legs, anything is possible, as the Citizens showed that in their quarter-final tie.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side got the better of French giants Paris Saint-Germain and deservedly qualified for the last four.
Atletico won against Barcelona in the last round, and Diego Simeone’s side side will certainly fancy their chances against Bayern, who are probably the strongest team left in the competition.
