Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola talked to the press and discussed some injury news about his team just two weeks ahead of their clash against Real Madrid in the return leg of the Champions League’s Round of 16.

“If we’re lucky, every single player will be available to play against Real Madrid with the exception of Mendy, who is suspended,” said Guardiola.

That implies that Kun Agüero should recover in time for that game even though he had surgery on June 24th to repair his left meniscus. Agüero is a crucial player for Guardiola and Manchester City and his presence could be monumental considering that Real Madrid will have to play that game without Sergio Ramos due to a suspension.

Madrid have a 1-2 deficit on aggregate and will face a tall task at the Etihad Stadium, but Los Blancos gained confidence and momentum after the quarantine and will surely try to achieve the unlikely comeback.
