Guardiola Sees Manchester City vs Real Madrid Clash as a Decisive Final in Champions League Showdown.


Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is gearing up for what he describes as a pivotal moment in their Champions League journey, as they face Real Madrid in the quarter-final second leg, likening the match to “a final.”

In a dramatic encounter last Tuesday, the Premier League champions locked horns with Los Blancos in a captivating 3-3 draw, setting the stage for a highly anticipated showdown.

Looking ahead to the return leg scheduled at the Etihad Stadium this Wednesday, Guardiola expresses optimism about the potential return of defender Kyle Walker, whose presence could be crucial in the encounter.

“Kyle Walker feels much better, maybe he can help with minutes against Real Madrid because it’s a final,” Guardiola remarked.

However, Guardiola remains cautious about rushing Walker back to action, mindful of the risk of prolonging his absence. “But I don’t want to lose him for a long time… we will decide in the next days,” he added.

Walker has been sidelined since sustaining a muscle injury during the previous international break, but his potential return could bolster City’s defensive lineup in this critical fixture.
