Carlos Tevez: il Real Madrid dovrebbe essere preoccupato contro il Manchester City

Carlos Tevez crede Real Madrid dovrebbe essere preoccupato di affrontare Manchester City quando la coppia si incontrerà martedì nell’andata della semifinale di Champions League.

Il Madrid, capolista della Premier League, e il Real Madrid, capolista della Liga Santander, si sono incontrati l’ultima volta nel 2020, quando la squadra inglese è uscita prima negli ultimi 16 scontri.

“È molto gratificante vedere cosa è diventato il City in questi dieci anni”, ha detto Tevez a ManCity.com. “È qualcosa di impressionante. Siamo passati dal combattere a metà classifica per andare alla pari con il più grande [in Europe).

“Nowadays it is completely different. Today Real Madrid are the one that have to be concerned about facing City”, he declared.

“This is the advantage that City now have. Today the opponents have to look at what City are capable of doing.

“With the players we have now and the infrastructure City have been building during these years we can fight as equals against any team in Europe.”

Too close to call

Madrid stunned Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16 and shocked Chelsea in the quarter-finals to reach this stage of the competition.

Many expected them to be knocked out against either of those two sides, but City could be their toughest challenge yet, although Tevez couldn’t call which way the tie will go.

“It’s a 50/50 tie”, said Tevez. “I’m very happy to see City in this position, fighting against the greatest teams in Europe.

“It has not been possible to win the Champions League yet, but I think the most important thing is that after ten years City are playing as equals against teams like Real Madrid and as it did on the last tie against Atletico.”

Tevez on Premier League title race

Tevez, who played for City from 2009 to 2013 and was part of the squad that won the club’s first Premier League title in 2012, believes City face a big battle to defend their crown, pointing out that the mentality of the Sky Blues and their title rivals Liverpool will be key.

“It is going to be tough,” added Tevez. “City and Liverpool know each other quite well.

“Both managers, Pep (Guardiola) and (Jurgen) Klopp, also do. It is almost like a chess game between them.

“In these circumstances, the one that shows more desire of winning, is going to get it. The one that gives it all, that shows more hunger, will succeed.”
