Pep Guardiola warns Manchester City that Real Madrid will hit back in second leg

Man City won 2-1 at Bernabeu in first leg of Champions Legaue last-16

Pep Guardiola was delighted with Manchester City’s 2-1 Champions League first leg victory at the Bernabeu but warned Zinedine Zidane will be scrutinising his tactics ahead of the second leg and Real Madrid have a history for comebacks.

The Manchester City manager delivered a surprise with both his team selection and tactics, starting with Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero on the bench, while asking Gabriel Jesus to play on the left flank and Kevin De Bruyne as a false nine.

The bold approach paid off, with Jesus and De Bruyne hitting back after Isco’s opener to give City a first-leg advantage – but Guardiola believes his side still have work to do to reach the quarter-finals.
