The Real Madrid seems that had very clear that his options to be in the semifinals of the current Champions League went through can surpass in the gone to the Manchester City and can travel to England for the turn with an advantage in the global marker, even if it was of only a goal. However, the merengues did not know to control the party in the last half hour, and although they finished with a tie (3-3) that avoided to visit to the ones of Pep Guardiola in disadvantage, some of his players seem something resignados to the denouement of the series.

And it is that the English already carried a tie of Madrid the past season, in that opportunity in semifinals and with a 1-1 final in the market, and in Manchester finish sentencing his pass to the final with a conclusive 4-0. Perhaps thus it is that a footballer with so much capacity of fight like Fede Valverde left to glimpse that the situation for the turn is more complicated of what wanted to in the changing room merengue.

Valverde Knows what is to have to win in Manchester

The Uruguayan even described the tie like "a defeat", remembering precisely this 1-1 of the past season. "It gives you a bit of spirit for the turn. We looked for the victory. The tie seems like the past year, as if it was a defeat. But it is necessary to follow and appreciate him to the people how has accompanied us and go to struggle by the first aim", commented in 'Movistar+'.

"The important is that we knew to counter his goal. We knew to put two goals in few minutes and gave us a lot spirit and motivation to follow pushing. But we rest us a bit, we leave of presionar by tiredness and put you goal", signalled the midfield player, author of the 3-3 final, and very critical in the little administration of the Madrid when they played already the last 30 minutes of the party.

Rodrygo Knows that the Madrid failed in defence

Like this also it saw it another footballer that marked this Tuesday, Rodrygo Goes. The Brazilian, that marked the 2-1 partial, commented that "we have empatado because we fail fitting goals that could not fit. It is necessary to train now this week and encarar the turn", said the forward. "Always it is difficult to begin losing very early, but have traced back the party, could control it a bit more in the contras, they touched and touched, but generated a lot danger. At the end it is what there is and are centred in the next week", added.
