Premier League champions Manchester City are in the Spanish capital this week as they take on Real Madrid in the Champions League Round of 16.

It means the next few months is huge for Pep Guardiola and co as they strive to claim Europe’s top trophy.
City topped Group C with ease but Real’s struggles in Group A has set up this glamour match-up in the first round of the knockout phase.
Real, who are second in LaLiga having lost to Levante on Saturday, have won the Champions League in four of the last six seasons.
These two last met in the semi-finals of the 2015/16 tournament with Real winning the two-legged tie 1-0 after an own goal by Fernando. Real went on to beat Atletico Madrid in the final.
City, who face Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, know the Premier League title is now gone and will be eager to break their Champions League duck this season.
They won at Leicester last time out and are undefeated in Europe this term.

Real Madrid vs Man City: What has been said?
Pep Guardiola knows a gulf in calibre remains between his side and Real Madrid despite the strides City have taken in recent years.
“I played many times against them as a player and a manager and I always had an incredible admiration for the history of this club,” Guardiola said.
“I know how difficult it is against the quality of their players.
“I don’t know how many finals they have played in or how many times they have lifted (the trophy). For us, maybe Claudio (Bravo, with Barcelona) has won the Champions League but otherwise we don’t have any players who have won this competition.
“But we have the desire to be ourselves. We can win, we can lose but we must try to be ourselves in these 180 minutes we have to face Real Madrid.
“For us there is an excitement. We try to do our best, knowing we play against the king of this competition.”
