Man City expected to breeze through Atletico Madrid tomorrow night.
The Cityzens hold a 1-0 lead over the Spanish giants and will travel to Wanda Metropolitano Stadium for the return fixture.
Diego Simeone’s men didn’t register a single shot in the entire game and Brazil legend Rivaldo believes Man City won’t encounter major problems in the return fixture.
Rivaldo expects Man City to qualify for the next round.
“Only one team tried to play football in Manchester City’s Champions League quarter-final first-leg win over Atletico Madrid. The Spanish side simply defended all the time,” Rivaldo told Betfair.
“Of course, they were expected to be cautious, but they needed to try to hurt their opponent at some point. That simply didn’t happen, with City having over 70% possession.
“If I was playing for a big team such as Atletico I would be embarrassed to defend for 90 minutes, especially in a squad with sharp offensive players like Antoine Griezmann, Luis Suárez and João Félix.”
