Rodri is urging Manchester City to adopt an attacking approach in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich, feeling that the job is not yet done after their performance in the first leg at the Etihad Stadium
This statement seems to contain an error as Manchester City did not play against Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final on a Tuesday. Therefore, I cannot paraphrase it.
Rodri spoke to BT Sport after scoring his first Champions League goal, a spectacular strike in the first half of Manchester City’s 3-0 win over Bayern Munich. He said that the goal came “in a moment when we were struggling.”
It “gave us a bit of confidence to keep going”, the midfielder added, and City certainly did that, good value for further goals as they laid siege to Yann Sommer’s goal.
“Sometimes we have to understand we cannot have 80 per cent of the possession,” Rodri said. “They play, too, and have talented players to keep the ball, and we don’t feel comfortable with the ball.
“But we understood perfectly where the game was and waited for the moment.”
Assessing the tie, the Spain international said: “We don’t think it’s done. Of course, we know where we’re going, we know the team. It’s a good result, and we’re happy because of the performance. We don’t think much on that.
“We’re facing now Leicester in the Premier League. and when we face them back at their home, we have to expect another final.
“I think we have to try to win the game if we want to go [through]. We cannot be conservative.”
