Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola claims that the better team will win tomorrow, and hopes it to be Manchester City.
I don't want luck tomorrow, the team who deserves to win, hopefully wins. Doesn't matter which one, hopefully be us. The players have to make an incredible performance to beat Madrid. I have an idea to be more different, more fluid in attack. It will happen naturally at home, we feel free, doesn't matter, we go. That's a feeling we have. Be ourselves, the rest I play 10 semi-finals for the CL, I lost seven. I know that feeling, there are many things you can't control," told the head coach to Manchester Evening.
Last week, Manchester City secured a 1-1 draw in Madrid. Kevin De Bruyne scored an excellent goal to equalize after Vinicius Jr. had unleashed a powerful shot earlier in the match. The result sets up an exciting second leg with everything still to play for.
"Hopefully you can see tomorrow. I cannot tell you, otherwise, Carlo will hear. I'm not overthinking tomorrow, don't worry guys. Nothing different to the past, just to be more fluid and play a bit better," answered Guardiola on his squad's improved performance.
Additionally, the Spanish coach praised his team's performance at the Bernabeu. He mentioned that they would try to involve Erling Haaland more in the upcoming game since he was effectively marked for most of the match in Spain. Haaland made a strong comeback by scoring a goal in the recent match against Everton, helping City edge closer to winning the Premier League title.
Nathan Ake has been sidelined due to injury for the past three games. Guardiola might provide an update on Ake's fitness later in the afternoon, before the team's training session. Additionally, the manager dismissed any concerns regarding Rodri's injury after he limped off during the Everton game.
