So It’s City Then
It’s been decided, folks. Destiny has spoken, and it has another Real Madrid vs City encounter in the UCL, as the citizens made it out of their quarterfinal clash with Bayern. What do you think of this matchup?
Haaland is a beast and City are a complete team that can dominate possession but also counter you (this is the part where you pray that Haaland misses). We had some trouble against Chelsea (too), when the ball reached our box. I think it’s going to be a very tough battle for us to win, but hey, when the Real Madrid European DNA kicks in, you never quite know.
