Manchester City’s reward for seeing off PSG in the quarter-finals of the Champions League is a semi-final date with Real Madrid.
By process of elimination, Bayern Munich will be taking on Atletico Madrid in the other last-four tie.
Of course, City boss Manuel Pellegrini was formerly in charge at Real, though not for very long – just about seeing out the 2009/10 season before being canned. That said, he did end the campaign with the best league win percentage of any coach in Real Madrid history (81.5%).
Anyway, we’re rambling now. The first legs will take place on the 26/27th of April, while the second legs will follow on 3/4th May.
Just for the record, the winner of the City-Real game will earn ‘home’ advantage for the final in the San Siro, which means getting to use the home (larger) dressing room and having the option to wear their home kit for the occasion.
