Whenever he loses AC in his stadium, the white box is out of the competition. Against Manchester City will try to change history.
While Real Madrid raises praise when Champions League There is talk, especially for what he has done in the last decade, the current moment arouses uncertainty, thinking more than anything that the white box will have to overcome in front of Manchester City, in I England, if you want to stay alive in the tournament. And the worst thing is that, if you look at history, the merengue club has never managed to recover when it begins a series with the left foot.
In the 2000-2001 season he was unable to lift the first leg 1-0 against Bayern Munich and succumbed in Germany 2-1.
In the 2005-2006 season the same thing happened against Arsenal. Thierry Henry scored a goal at the Santiago Bernabéu and with the tie in London everything was sentenced in favor of the Gunners.
Most remembered is their duel against Liverpool in the 2008-2009 season, in which they fell 1-0 at home and then were thrashed 4-0 at Anfield 4-0 with a double by Steven Gerrard and somewhat by Torres (the other was Dossena’s work).
They also failed in 2010-2011 with the duel on the banks between Guardiola and Mourinho. Barcelona won 2-0 as a visitor and a cold equality at the Camp Nou closed everything in favor of the Catalans.
The foregoing makes it clear that when Madrid loses at home it is difficult for them to return a key. But there is another thing to keep in mind for this Saturday, especially for the rival: the white team already knows what to beat City in qualifying rounds. He did it in the 2015-2016 season after the 0-0 draw at the Bernabéu and the victory in the Etihad with a goal from Fernando on his own goal, to get into the Milan final and lift the Eleventh. Maybe a good omen.
