Real Madrid had to settle with a goal-less draw against Manchester City as both clubs faced off on April 26 in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
The 1rst leg was played in the home stadium of Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium and it would’ve been a huge advantage for Real Madrid if they had managed to score an away goal but it did not happen.
Sergio Ramos is the captain of the Spanish club and as one of the main figures of Real Madrid, the experienced defender took the chance to voice his thoughts and things that occurred during their Champions League match against Manchester City.
‘’We are happy for the reaction of the team in the second half. We had more ball possession and created a lot of chances. Everything will be at stake in the second leg. We’ll play in our stadium with the support of our fans, if we knew that at the beginning of the season, we would have taken it.’’
‘’Playing away we would have liked to score. It wasn’t possible but the team felt more comfortable in the second half. We kept the ball better and created chances even though we weren’t lucky enough to finish. But I’m happy with the team’s attitude and for the way we delivered. Our last chance will be at home.’’ Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos said as he talked after drawing against Manchester City in the first leg of the semi-finals against Manchester City.
Cristiano Ronaldo was absent from this match due to injury as well as KarimBenzema and both of them still haven’t been confirmed for the 2nd leg. The 2nd leg of the semi-finals will be played on March 4. The Champions League is the priority competition that Real Madrid is aiming to win in this season and ZinedineZidane will try to do everything in his power to seal his first Champions League title as a manager.
