Man City boss Guardiola: My message to the players for Atletico Madrid second-leg

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says his team can perform better than they did in the first-leg of their Champions League quarterfinal against Atletico Madrid.

City won 1-0 ahead of tomorrow night’s second-leg in Madrid.

“Yes we can be better,” Guardiola said. “It will be slightly different there than it was in Manchester.

“There will be moments we will have to be ready to defend. They are so intense. They have incredible support for the team and manager.

“We need to create chances. We know Atletico Madrid in the knockout stage is so, so difficult. We will try.

“We travel with a sure result and intention to win the game. We try to see what the score is in the last five, ten minutes.

“It will be different from the first because they are at home and create momentum with their own game and the passion of their fans and the history they have.

“There will be moments when they are aggressive and create problems.

“We have to play our game. We have done these years. You have to finish with 11 in the knockout stages.

“The message will not for one second be different to what we have done all the time.

“Be careful in situations, defend well. Control the transitions which are really good. All the stuff we prepared – we need to do it as well as possible.

“I trust the players a lot. I know how it works, this world. Things change up and down, positive and negative.

“But we travel there to win the game. That’s what we have to do.”
