Manchester City’s missing link has always been the Champions League – both for his predecessors and himself the current manager Pep Guardiola but is seems their time is now to shine on after seeing-off the back-to-back straight three-time Champions League Zinedine Zidane led Real Madrid Raphael Varane avoidable error-prone, Friday night to heading for Lisbon. The Pep Guardiola City was simply too good for Real, who are admittedly not the force they were, as they inflicted a first Champions League knockout defeat on manager Zinedine Zidane.
Now feels, however, more like City’s time and their best opportunity than in previous seasons, with Liverpool disposed of by the dangerous Atletico Madrid while Juventus and Cristiano Ronaldo have been removed by Lyon, the next opponents for Guardiola.Yet City, in this mood, will feel they can match anyone over one game – even if there must also be caution because we have seen City capable of bad days in the Premier League this season. While their good moments last, they should as well be cautious.
