Wayne Rooney: "Manchester City will destroy Real Madrid"

Wayne Rooney has revealed the prediction of him on the UEFA Champions League semi-final between Manchester City and Real Madrid. Speaking to the Times, the former Manchester United soccer star said: "Manchester City will not only beat Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Champions League, they will destroy them.

Of course, I could be wrong, but I think City are on another level. You can never rule out a team with Real Madrid's experience and history, but I wouldn't bet on them.Since the beginning of the season, I felt that this would be the season where Guardiola would finally win the much desired trophy with Manchester City.

The soccer his team has been playing in recent months, and the way it has peaked at just the right moment, has only confirmed that notion. The biggest change at City is Erling Haaland. Last season at the Bernabéu the team made lost in five crazy minutes.

With Haaland that wouldn't have happened. Real Madrid couldn't have played the same way. In both games they had moments where they took the ball away from City and they were able to do it because City didn't He had a real threat on the break."

Real Madrid vs Manchester City will meet today in the semi-final first leg of the UEFA Champions League.

Pep Guardiola's formation is almost done: the only ballot could concern Mahrez and Bernardo Silva, but the Portuguese seems to have a clear advantage. For Ancelotti, on the other hand, some more doubts: in defense Rudiger and Alaba, on the left Camavinga, starter in that role in the Copa del Rey final, goes towards confirmation, while in the middle of the field Luka Modric is destined to return to starting position in Tchouameni's place.

MANCHESTER CITY: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Akanji; Stones, Rodri; Bernardo Silva, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Grealish; Haaland.

REAL MADRID: Courtois; Carvajal, Rudiger, Alaba, Camavinga; Valverde, Tchouameni, Kroos; Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius.
