Manchester City defeated Copenhagen 6-2 on aggregate over the course of two legs to easily advance to the round of 16 in the Champions League.

But after being drawn to play Real Madrid in the quarterfinals, the reigning champions will have a far more difficult challenge in the following round.

With a team that has been rejuvenated, Carlo Ancelotti will be feeling a lot more confident and will want to exact retribution for the 4-0 beating his team suffered in the event last year.

Their season-long success can be largely attributed to Bellingham’s performances, who joined the team in the summer and has since established himself as maybe the finest player.

Guardiola praised the 20-year-old English midfielder and his contributions at the Bernabeu when speaking about him.

“Bellingham has had a significant impact. This team is not the same as it was last year. Through Goal, he said.

”It’s clear that he has influence, so we need to figure out how he manages it. There’s no denying that playing Real Madrid is always a difficult challenge”.

The two sides will meet off on April 9th, with the second leg taking place the following week at the Etihad Stadium.
