Despite the 3-0 victory against Bayern Munich in the first leg of the Champions League, Pep Guardiola fears the return against the German champions.
Manchester City just wrapped up a great week. After knocking down the Bayern Munich Tuesday in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League (3-0), the Mancunians saw Arsenal concede two points in Sunday’s title chase at West Ham. With the Cup semi-final coming up against Sheffield, the Skyblues can look forward to a historic treble.
A conflict that binds?
But despite the maximum confidence gained by his players in recent weeks (14 matches without defeat, 10 consecutive victories), Pep Guardiola is not so sure of himself two days before the second leg against Bayern on Wednesday, for a rather surprising reason, the altercation between Sadio Mane And Leroy Sane after the first leg. “Sometimes it takes conflict to make the team more united. This is not a weak point for them but a strong point. I imagine the situation against Manchester City, Bayern’s best performance will be Wednesday night.”, he predicted. Simple jargon or real fear?
