Pep Guardiola is not living his best season in the Manchester City and has very complicated to raise some important title this course. The 'cityzens' are right now to 11 points of the Liverpool, that has a party less for having lost this day when being in the World-wide of Clubs. If the 'reds' won this meeting when they play it, would remain to 14 of the 'Sky Blues', that only could win this league if the ones of Jürgen Klopp decided to throw it to the rubbish.

The Champions League neither will be at all easy for the English, since they confront to the Real Madrid in eighth of final. The whites little or at all have to see with the team that remained deleted against the Ajax the past campaign and will be a very hard rival for the City. Pep Guardiola knows it, although it will try to do cost his condition of first of group to surpass to the merengues and plant in chambers.

The technician 'cityzen' precisely spoke this past Saturday on the Madrid after the victory of his against the Leicester by 3-1. The ones of Manchester surpassed to a direct rival and already are to only a point of the 'foxes', that still keep second. When it asked after him the delicate situation of his team, that, as it has said , has the almost impossible Premier, the one of Santpedor answered with intelligence attending to LaLiga and to the points that carry Madrid and Barça.

"Have a point less than Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. They are leading the Spanish league right now. The problem that have is to have to a team that of 17 parties has won 16 and has empatado only one. I remove me the hat by them and congratulate them. Our team has spirit. We will lose parties, will lose points, but never have lost our game", commented Guardiola, excusándose by not being in the direct fight by the league.

The words of Pep are some, although it was using them for excusar to a City that if it is not struggling with the Liverpool is by his defensive fragility. The 'cityzens' are not giving the level in defence that presupposes him to a big team and precisely therefore it could suffer a lot against the Madrid in a direct clash. With balloon, the English are almost imparables if have the day, but when they do not have it happen it terribly badly backwards.

We have done an incredible party. With and without balloon, defending so up and controlling to Vardy… have been to a big level and only remains me thank my players for following me as they do it", concluded.
