Manchester City are targeting the terrific Treble this season as they are just a few matches away from FA Cup, Premier League and UEFA Champions League glory. Pep Guardiola’s side will face one of the most dominant forces in Europe as they hope to reach the grand finale of the UCL next month.

Real Madrid are, without question, the most successful side in Europe with a record number of UCL trophies to their name. They will, however, prepare to take on a side which has not been beaten since February and contains one of the most prolific strikers of the 2022/23 season in Erling Haaland.

History indicates that Real Madrid have the upper hand heading into what is set to be a fiery semi-final, but if there was ever a time for Manchester City to edge past Los Blancos, now appears to be the season.

Here is all you need to know about their UCL triumphs...
