Bayern and Atletico paired in other semi final
Manchester City have been drawn against Real Madrid in the semi-final of the Champions League. The first tie will take place at The Etihad Stadium on either 26/27 April, with the return leg in Madrid scheduled for the following week.
Manuel Pellegrini's side defeated Paris Saint-Germain 3-2 on aggregate to progress to the last four for the first time in the club's history.
The game will be a stage for some of the Blue’s biggest names to really put their mark on this European Championship. With our previous big wins over teams like Monchengladbach back in December last year, players like Aguero and currently in form De Bruyne will be chomping at the bit to get on the scoresheet come late April.
In fact, given Augero’s impressive Premiership record, not to mention the 7 European appearances he’s made so far this season, it comes as a bit of a shock that he has not been honoured in William Hill’s European Knights - an online hall of fame immortalising over 20 of Europe’s finest football icons through the years. Nevertheless, you can vote for your favourite below... just try and make sure it’s not Ronaldo!

Hopefully this will change in the next match-up as our own Blue Knights come through putting City more step closer to Champions League glory.
