Pep Guardiola looks forward to Champions League Semi final decider following their 1-1 draw at Benerbeu.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has stated it will be a final at the Etihad against Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Manchester City were able to get a draw with a controversial goal scored by Kevin DeBruyne after Vinicius jr. scored in the first half of the game.

The result set up a mouth-watering encounter next Wednesday at the Etihad, one which Guardiola is excited by.

He said: “It was a really tight game. Congratulations to the team because in this competition and this scenario the teams are always so difficult for their history but especially their quality.

“We started really well and when we were better they made an incredible transition from Camavinga and an incredible finish from Vinicius.

“And when they were better than us in the second half, we scored a goal.

“It was a tight game. It’s open to Manchester, it will be a final playing at home with our people and we look forward to it.

“The effort was incredible. It’s like a play-off now.

“We know exactly what they have done. Maybe they will adjust something, maybe not. We have to see if we can defend a little bit better in some departments and attack because Alaba and Rudiger were so close to Erling. The spaces were occupied by Valverde and Kroos, it was not easy to find spaces for Erling.

“But we will try to adjust something maybe in the second leg to be more fluid and play with a bit more rhythm because we play at home and at home we feel comfortable with our people. We are going to try.

“The team that is going to win the game is going to get to the final.”
