The La Liga champions lost the first leg of the round of 16 at the Bernabéu 2-1, so they have to go out to win at the Etihad Stadium.
“If you look at them without the first leg result, Madrid would be one of the big favorites. Manchester City too, they are the two best teams in the world,” Seedorf told Stats Perform News.
“But it will be difficult to go there and turn the series around, but nothing is impossible in that sense. But also, City needs to compensate for the average season it has had, if it can be called that,” he added, and clarified: “Madrid can do it, but it is difficult.”
On the other hand, the former Milan player highlighted the great level that Karim Benzema and Sergio Ramos have shown in recent months. Although, it should be noted that the Camas center-back will not be able to be in the duel in England due to the expulsion he received in the first clash.
“Obviously, when players like [Sergio] Ramos and [Karim] Benzema smell the opportunity against that rival, that creates extra motivation. Ramos and Benzema have been key players but, like I said, the whole team has shown quite solid form, “said the Dutchman.
