Man City & Juventus
Tuesday was a brilliant night for Manchester City and Juventus in the Champions League.
City blew Schalke off the park as the Manchester crowd were treated to a 7-0 victory.
In Turin, Juventus staged one of the great Champions League comebacks against Atletico Madrid.
Atletico, known for their defensive prowess, were 2-up from the first leg.
However Cristiano Ronaldo scored his eight Champions League hat-trick to lead Juventus into the final eight.
Pep Guardiola on Cristiano Ronaldo
After the Schalke game, Pep Guardiola was pushed to assess Man City’s chances of winning the Champions League.
The Spanish coach highlighted Ronaldo’s achievements against Atletico as a reason why City aren’t amongst the favourites:
Madrid is out, but there’s still Juventus.
These guys take Cristiano Ronaldo – they go there to win the Champions League with Juventus.
He has all the pressure on his shoulders, he scores three versus Atletico Madrid and they go through. That is the type of guy you face to achieve the next stages.
We are going to try. If it doesn’t work, I am sorry but I assure you next season we are going to try. This competition is tough.
