Real Madrid and Manchester City equalised the Tuesday in a partidazo (3-3) in Santiago Bernabéu. The two teams attained to recover to be in disadvantage and, after the party, Pep Guardiola surprised with a 'dart' to the managerial 'merengue' by a factor that conditioned the formality of the crash: the state of the field. Again, the lawn of the Bernabéu showed a quite disappointing face, this time with the enclosed ceiling by disposal of the club.

"To me it likes me see the sky, the truth", began saying the Catalan trainer. "The stadium has remained impressive, but now only have to take care the grass, only have to improve this. Florentino only has to concern to do a good field as always the Madrid had had it", argued the one of Santpedor. In spite of the fast transitions from beginning to end, both teams had some imprecisions with short passes during the meeting that evidenciaron the vulnerability of the lawn, something recurrent from the beginning of the works in Chamartín.

I have not stepped the lawn today, have said it to me my players. But that no take it to him the people to bad, because I have played here many times and always had a carpet. Now it is not like this, but the stadium is spectacular. The changing rooms, everything...", it explained Pep.

Certainly, the lawn of the 'White House' follows without being to tope from the installation of the retractable system and his protect in the hypogeum. The past season, the club replaced his 'tapete' until in five opportunities and, from the past month of September, the terrain has presenting again problems, with parts of the much softer pasture of the usual and other very rigid that carry to the balloon to hammer of odd form.

Guardiola, satisfied with the tie in the Bernabéu

On the party, the technician 'cityzen' showed satisfied by the effort of his players and a result that, in general lines, was just. "I imagine that the people has had a good time, when there is a party with six goals... It is impossible to control the transitions of the Madrid, have lost balloons with players very reliable with the balloon, a lot of losses... The Madrid in this field know that never it finish the party and have it player very well without conceding, have gone generating increasingly danger and have been able to do two golazos", argued the Catalan technician.
