Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has singled out four Manchester City players – Erling Haaland, Kevin de Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan – ahead of both teams’ Champions League semi-final second-leg tie on Wednesday night at the Etihad Stadium.
Ancelotti said that Real Madrid won’t be solely focusing on stopping Haaland.
Both Real Madrid and Manchester City drew 1-1 in the Champions League semi-final first-leg tie last week in Spain.
“We are not only thinking about Haaland. There is De Bruyne, Gundogan, Mahrez. It is tough,” Ancelotti said (via MadridXtra).
“What we are clear about is that if they have to score, let it be soon. That way, we will have more time to react.”
The kick-off time for the Champions League last-four clash is 8 pm.
