This Monday has celebrated in the headquarters of the UEFA in Nyon (Switzerland) the draw of the eighth of final of the Champions League. The past week concluded the phase of groups after six very thrilling days and 16 clubs attained the classification for this following round. The Real Madrid was one of them, although it could not finish leader of his group. The whites remained seconds after Paris Saint-Germain of Kylian Mbappé and Neymar Jr.

After finish second of group, everything aimed that the ones of Zinedine Zidane would play in eighth with a powerful rival, and like this has been. The whites will confront to the Manchester City of Pep Guardiola in one of the duels with more morbo and interest of this draw. The English are not going through his best moment, but have an equipazo and will be very dangerous.

The City is definitely one of the most complicated rivals that they could touch them to the merengues. Guardiola Carries years perfecting to the 'citizens' until doing of them one of the best teams of the world. This season, nevertheless, the English are having serious defensive problems that have condemned them in the Premier League. The Liverpool is 14 points above the ones of Manchester, that have almost impossible to repeat conquest in league.

Besides, the drop of the Kun Agüero, that carries time lesionado, is lastrando to the 'citizens' also in the forward. When have the day, are almost imparables, but when they are not fine have serious problems to create opportunities of goal. By game, players and trainer, the City is one of the best of Europe, but it will be necessary to see in which state of form arrives to the dispute of the eighth in front of the Real Madrid.

It is probably the best eliminatory and one of the most equalised of this draw of eighth. It could happen any one of the two perfectly and the result of the same could depend fundamentally of the defensive level that exhibit the English. The Madrid seems that defensivamente already has found the balance that looked for and is in attack where more problems has. If the City improves in defence, perhaps was something more favourite that the merengues by the tremendo potential offensive that has.

The whites avoided to the Liverpool and the Juventus

Definitely, the team that any of the second wanted to was the Liverpool. The 'reds' are more in shape that anybody and will see the faces with the Athletic of Madrid, that did not have at all of luck in the pairing. The madridistas also avoided to the Juventus of Cristiano Ronaldo and Dybala. Neither the Portuguese neither the Juve are in his best moment, but anybody wanted to confront to the 'Vecchia Signora' in eighth.
