The Whites have played the last 6 Champion's League knock-out fixtures with the second leg in the Bernabéu
Real Madrid will not be able to complain about the chance they are having in all Champion's League draws. Besides the accessible opponents that they have to face, there is a figure that shows the remarkable luck that the Whites are having.
In their last 6 knock-out fixtures in the Champion's League, Madrid have always played the second leg in the Bernabéu. In the 3 draws of last year (Schalke 04, Atlético and Juventus), the qualification decided itself on Madrid's pitch. This year, the same happened with Roma, Wolfsburg and now Manchester City who will have to bet it all in the Spanish capital.
In the quarter-finals and the semi-finals, the home/away element is decided according to the order in which the balls are opened. The first name that gets out is always the host. The second has the luxury to be able to decide the game with their fans. In the case of the last 16 round, the second leg always takes place in the stadium of the team that ended at first place during the group stage.
Madrid's luck generated many comments on social media but the Merengues will have to show on the pitch that they deserve to be in San Siro to play the final. Pellegrini's Manchester City, alongside Agüero, De Bruyne and Touré, dreams about it.
