Man City’s Guardiola wary of vengeance seeking Madrid


Manchester City's Spanish manager Pep Guardiola gives a press conference on the eve of their UEFA Champions League quarter final first leg football match against Real Madrid CF at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid on April 8, 2024.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola believes Real Madrid will be determined to get revenge after they thrashed the Spanish giants on their way to winning last season’s Champions League.

City beat Real 5-1 on aggregate in the semi-finals.

However, Guardiola has no doubt the 14-time winners will pose a tough test in this Tuesday night’s quarter-final first leg in Madrid at 8pm.

“It is very difficult for the same thing to happen again,” Guardiola said.

“Beating Real Madrid twice in a row is impossible. They have learned and will want revenge. They have pride.

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti wants his side to show more mental strength than they did when the two sides met last season.

After a 1-1 draw in Madrid, Manchester City thrashed Real in the second leg 4-0. “We played without courage, without personality,” said Ancelotti. “Courage and personality are fundamental in this type of game, we lacked them in the second leg. The important thing is to be at our best, the mental aspect is very important.”
