Fate will decide the game against Real Madrid - Rodri

Fate will decide the game against Real Madrid - Rodri

Manchester City man Rodri is confident of his side ability when they take on Real Madrid in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League round 16 tie.

City takes a one-goal lead into the tie as they won the first leg by 2:1 at Santiago Bernabeu. With Madrid coming to Manchester, Rodri want his side to prove they are better and can do well against the Spanish giant.

'They are more than a team, they have that way of playing. You can never relax, even if you are winning 3-0 or 4-0 they still come back,' Rodri said during the pre-match press conference

'They have a huge personality to be the champions they have been over the past 20 or 30 years.'

'They are the biggest team in this competition but now football has changed a little bit. It is so competitive. The distances between teams are so, so narrow.'

'I know that we have a better team but we have to show that we have a better team on the pitch with our good behaviour and personality. I think we have a better squad and if we do things well, I think everything is going to be good for us.'

Rodri also spoke about how confident his side is going into the game and reveals he think they have a better team during the Spanish Language section of the press conference.

'That's just a general opinion of mine. I think we have got a better team, but words are worthless if you can't demonstrate them out on the field," he said. "It's down to us to prove that, prove what I've been saying.'

'There are lots of general reasons, but I'd just say we're a side that is full of goals and we've got talented players in every position, every area of the field.'

'We've got to play well and I think we've got to match Real Madrid in what they may have that is better than us – more experience on the massive stage than us and they've got a strong mentality in these big, big games.'

'If we match them in those areas, fate will decide, but I think we'll have a good chance.'
