Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane is not taking the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg against Manchester City lightly, as he knows what to expect from a ruthless side led by Pep Guardiola.
According to the Real Madrid centre-back, it’ll be a herculean task to turn the 2-1 deficit around at the Etihad stadium, but Real Madrid have a couple of advantages over Manchester City heading into the fixture.
Varane explained that despite having to travel to England, Manchester without fans will not be as effective, which could make things easier for Real Madrid.
The Frenchman also added that Real Madrid own the experience of playing in such matches more than many other sides in the world, meaning they would head into the game with a bit more ‘serenity’.
