Manchester City's Run Of Fixtures In April Is Hard As F*ck

Postado Março 16, 2019

Meanwhile, United face Guardiola's former side Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals and the Spanish manager has shared his thoughts on the "fascinating" tie. There are six teams in the Premier League and we can not say they are bad because all of them are in quarter-finals [Arsenal and Chelsea are in the last eight of the Europa League].

City travel to Old Trafford on 24th April to face cross-town rivals United in a huge league showdown.

Tottenham vs. Manchester City and Liverpool vs. Porto are both set for 3 p.m. April 9 in the first leg of the quarterfinals.

That allowed Klopp the opportunity to rest key players for the second leg at Anfield which ended in a goalless draw.

Ajax, once a major European power who struggle to compete financially with clubs from bigger leagues, ousted Real in the last 16 and their tie against Juventus will be a repeat of the 1996 final, which the Serie A club won on penalties. Those games also start at 3 p.m.

With the Carabao Cup boxed off, will City win the quadruple?

"I think it might be a step too far to go and win the Champions League this season".

'And that was maybe the main problem at Liverpool for the last decade.

"When I spoke with my chairman, CEO, sporting director, the people here working know, and they give credit for what we have done in the last two seasons".

As for the Premier League side, they have to try and battle with Lionel Messi who has been in incredible form as of late. Ajax last won the Champions League in 1995, while Manchester United last won in 2008 and Juventus most recently won in 1996. If we do not win the Champions League, our work for three seasons, every three days, is a failure or a disaster.
