Pep Guardiola: Manchester City will be 'more fluid' in the second leg against Real Madrid
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has expressed confidence in his team's ability to defeat Real Madrid in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-final. Guardiola's charges drew the first leg 1-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu, where Vini Junior put the Spanish side ahead before Kevin De Bruyne's crucial equaliser in the 67th minute. The City boss revealed that he was aiming to win the away leg, but remains optimistic about beating Los Merengues at the Etihad Stadium, after a few adjustments to the game plan. "I'd have liked to win but I had the feeling that I was not expecting to have a wide result," Guardiola told City's official website. "We expect to adjust a bit in the second leg. I have a bit of an idea on what we need to do. "It will be a final playing at home with our people and we look forward to it. We know exactly what [Real] have done. Maybe they will adjust something, maybe not. "We have to see if we can defend a little bit better in some departments and attack because [David] Alaba and [Antonio] Rudiger were so close to Erling. "The spaces were occupied by [Federico] Valverde and [Toni] Kroos, it was not easy to find spaces for Erling. "But we will try to adjust something maybe in the second leg to be more fluid and play with a bit more rhythm because we play at home and at home we feel comfortable with our people. We are going to try."
