Real Madrid battle Manchester City tomorrow evening in Champions League.

The Spanish champions will play host to the Premier League side at the Santiago Bernabeu to compete for the second leg of the Champions League semi-final.

Los Blanco won La Liga with four games to spare.

The Citizens won beat Leeds United at Elland Road and do hold the advantage of having won the first leg at the Etihad Stadium 4-3 before travelling to Spain.

Carlo Ancelotti admitted it’s going to be a difficult challenge but believes his side will definitely turn things around.

“The team is well, motivated, concentrated,” Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said pre-match as carried by Mundo Deportivo.

“We have a great challenge, the opportunity to play another Champions League final. We know how difficult the match will be, but we are very confident. The tie is wide open. We have a small disadvantage and we want to fix it tomorrow.

“Two teams of great quality are going to face each other, different both individually and collectively. If you reach the semi-final, the final or win the Champions League, it’s not only because of your heart even though personality is an important part because it allows you to show the quality you have.

“There are many important aspects: individual quality, collective commitment. You need everything, just part of it isn’t enough in the Champions League. Winning tomorrow is not only a matter of the heart or the push that, as always, the Bernabeu will give.”
