Under the stewardship of Pep Guardiola, Manchester City has become a winning machine. The Spaniard won 3 premier league titles already nevertheless he failed to deliver the utmost prize to the citizens. Therefore, his prime target this time is to achieve European glory and his well-drilled team is more than ready to go for everything.
They’re the league leaders in England notwithstanding the margin is just one point. They did well in their group round where they lost only once against PSG. In the last 16, they did great against Sporting CP. Their defensive strength is envious. After the first leg though no one is a clear favourite as the aggregation is a mere 1-0. So the last seasons’ runner-up side has to give their best to reach the last 4 again.
In the first leg, Atletico did produce many things but none of them could make them proud. They’re famous for their defensive strength nevertheless they set two lines of five players in front of Oblak. They failed to take any shot and hadn’t any corner also.
They were poor in the group phase and managed to win merely two matches but drew in 1st leg at Wanda Metropolitano while facing Manchester United and then they won the away match at Old Trafford. That win gives them a huge boost. Now they intend to do a Manchester double by knocking City out of the UCL but to do so they have to play a different kind of football tonight. The city’s lead isn’t big enough therefore, a strong display at their home ground can change things.
