Pep Guardiola knows of leftovers the dangerous that it is to confront to the Real Madrid, and more in an eliminatory to double party of the Champions League. The merengues won four 'orejonas' of five possible in the last years, some times with referee's controversy and others imposing his superiority and experience in front of teams that, in spite of having a lot of talent in his rows, did not have of experience in this type of parties.

It is the case of the Manchester City, a group plagado of stars but that is not accustomed to compete in the highest rounds of the League of Champions, or at least no in the historical field. Now, the 'citizens' have the opportunity to access to the quarter-finals deleting to one of the favourites, the Real Madrid of Zidane, and after a very good party of gone in which they started a 1-2 of Santiago Bernabéu.

"If there is a team that can give him turn are these big teams, as also the Barcelona or the Bayern"

In spite of the favourable result of the gone, and that in the turn the Real Madrid will not be able to range to Sergio Bouquets by accumulation of yellow cards, Pep Guardiola no fía neither a peel of the merengues and like this has transmitted it in an interview to 'DAZN'.

"Have a good result of the party of gone. If we play with this result, will have a lot of difficulties to be able to happen. We have to try arrive to the minute 95 saying that we have been we with the well and the bad that has the team", signals the one of Sampedor, fully centred already in the preparation of the party that will play the next 7 August in the Etihad Stadium.

"It does not be necessary to think too much in the advantage that have. We know the advantage that is. If there is a team that can give him turn are these big teams, as also the FC Barcelona or the Bayern. They know these competitions and know them play", adds, comparing the potential of the Real Madrid to the of other big clubs like the Barcelona and the German, both teams to which he same trained.

Guardiola, an enamoured of Zidane

It does not know what will happen in the eliminatory with the Madrid, but what yes has clear Guardiola is that Zidane is a súper class, as much as player as of trainer. "Like player was, bua… What would have liked me play with him! Had the misfortune to find me it against in the French selection. It does very well to the football in the good and bad moments, and gladden me. Although the people can that it does not create me, because it is of the Real Madrid, gladden me a lot of that they go him well the things because it is very good for the football that go him well the things to people like him".

And it does not subtract merits to 'Zizou' after all what is achieving in these last years at the head of the white bench. "If it has done what has done, winning three Champions followed, removing him two Leagues to the Barça when the Barcelona in this decade has dominated this competition like any club in the world, shows his capacity", concludes Pep. His words of praise, a strategy to put more pressure to the rival?
