Thomas Muller gives a blunt verdict on Man City’s Champions League problem.
Thomas Muller believes the randomness of Champions League ties can cause Man City problems.
He believes the Cityzens have a better chance of being successful in domestic competitions than in European competitions because of two-legged ties.
Muller said: “A team with Pep Guardiola is always in shape to win it but the problem is in the Champions League, in the knockout stage, you have only two games and many crazy things can happen.
“And last year in the tournament, there was only one game against Lyon. Maybe if there were two games they go to the next round, maybe.
“That’s the problem when you have only one chance or only two games, there is more ‘random’ than in 38 games like in the Premier League.
“In the last two years, Liverpool was amazing. But normally a good team with Pep Guardiola wins the league, for sure.
“The continuation, how he prepares his teams. His team against smaller teams, he is the best. But when two top teams play against each other, the difference is not big enough to put away the ‘random’.”
