The Real Madrid has a foot out of the Champions League after falling against the Manchester City in the gone of the eighth of final. The madridistas left trace back in hardly five minutes and finish losing by 1-2, a result that puts them very slope up the classification for chambers. To happen, the merengues need to do a perfect party in the Etihad and win 0-2 or by a goal of difference, as long as it was from the 2-3.

Do this in front of the City of Pep Guardiola is not any foolishness and, a priori, seems something tremendously complicated. Any team in Europe has attained to win by a result that cost them to happen to chambers in the Etihad from six years ago. The last time that somebody won in the stadium 'cityzen' by a marker that would classify to the ones of Zinedine Zidane was the FC Barcelona, that won 0-2 on 18 February 2014.

Leo Messi, of penalti, and Dani Alves in the final stretch of the meeting left the eliminatory sight for sentence in the gone of the eighth of final of the League of Champions. The situation then was very distinct to which will confront the whites now, but does not leave to be a mirror in which the Madrid would have to look. This City do not have at all that see with the one of now, but the 0-2 with which won the blaugrana is the example that has to follow the group merengue.

From this result, the English have known to control in elder or lower measure to his rivals in Manchester and the most been bulky result with which have lost has been a 1-2. They fell by this marker against the CSKA in the phase of groups of the campaign 2014/2015, in front of the Barça again in the gone of the eighth of final of this same year, against the Juventus of Turín in the 15/16, against the Basilea in the turn of the eighth of the 17/18, in front of the Liverpool in the turn of the chambers of this same course and against the Olympique of Lyon in the phase of groups of the past year.

The Madrid has to imitate to the Barça and will go to by the 0-2

If the Madrid achieves to win by 1-2, as all these groups, at least would force an extention that would allow them remain to a goal or to five penaltis of the chambers. That would be definitely the lower evil in front of which confront the madridistas, that right now seems that they would be happy to be able to play these 30 extra minutes. The real aim, nevertheless, would have to be this 0-2 of the Barcelona that avoid unnecessary risks.

For the traced back, the whites will not be able to have Sergio Bouquets, that was expelled in the gone with red direct. The central will be a very sensitive drop for the diagram of Zidane, that will have to choose between Éder Militao and Nacho Fernández. The Brazilian would have to be the elected by price and potential, but the confidence that is used to to have the French with the canterano could be decisive in the election. It was the one who was, will have to have the day to avoid that the 'cityzens' mark and complicate even more a pass to fourth that already of by himself is very difficult.
