Vinicius is now Zinedine Zidane's solution — Real Madrid

Vinicius is now Zinedine Zidane's solution — Real Madrid

Pep Guardiola started Gabriel Jesus against the La Liga side and the forward repaid his manager's faith by scoring the equaliser before Kevin De Bruyne netted the victor.

Vinicius Junior said that Gabriel Jesus fouled Sergio Ramos as Jesus went up for his header to bring Manchester City level with Real Madrid in the Champions League round of 16. I didn't need to see it again in the dressing room.

"It's a hamstring injury", Guardiola said.

Aymeric Laporte is facing a "minimum" of three weeks on the sidelines, after the defender suffered a hamstring injury against Real Madrid on Tuesday night.

"We're not here just to get through the round but to try to win the Champions League", Rodri said. Accept it, work hard to come back as soon as possible'. It is what it is.

India post below-par 133/8 against New Zealand, despite Shafali's 46
New Zealand wobbled early in their chase after their top three, including skipper Devine, departed with the team reeling at 34-3. India got off to a flyer after they were sent in by Devine, racing to 49-1 at the end of the six-over power play.


"To win at the Bernabeu is a great satisfaction for us".

"We tried to avoid it [by managing his performances since returning from knee injury], but it's happened and, after four or five months injured, it can happen". It is a different competition with a historic team. If you think "I am an unlucky guy", you will not improve.

Guardiola, whose City side are chasing down a third successive Carabao Cup triumph, added on the benefits of heading into another big game on the back of a notable win over Madrid: "Of course it is better". We played very well, even scored at a moment where we were not as good.

"Madrid is not done first of all, always I have thought that it is incredibly hard to win at big clubs but it is more challenging to beat them twice".

Of the last six games, he's spent two on the bench and only played half of another. It does not come often. The mistakes we made, it hurts, we don't deserve it, but that's football.
