“But what happened in the past is the past. We are not here for revenge. It’s just another opportunity. As much as we are here, one day we will get it. One day we will reach the final and we will win it. We come here to do this this season.

“Last season we also came here to reach the final and win it. But it didn’t happen because we played against Real Madrid and in this competition they know exactly what they have to do. As much as we play against them or the other top teams in Europe, much closer we will be.”

Real Madrid vs Manchester City injury latest

City will be without defender Nathan Ake after he sustained an injury against Leeds last time out. However, apart from that, they have a clean bill of health which is a boost.

As for Real Madrid, Dani Ceballos and Ferland Mendy are both sidelined which is a blow for Carlo Ancelotti’s outfit. Experienced midfielder Luka Modric is also a doubt and will have to be assessed ahead of the first leg.
