Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva is certain his club will beat Real Madrid after defeating Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals.
After a stunning 4-1 aggregate victory over the Bavarian Giants, City advanced to the semi-finals.
Silva scored twice in the first leg at the Etihad, helping the Sky Blues to a 3-0 victory and an easy passage to the next round.
The playmaker believes his team can avenge their elimination by Real Madrid in the same round last season.
City had a two-goal advantage (5-3 on aggregate) but were stunned when Real scored twice in stoppage time through Rodrygo.
Karim Benzema, the Ballon d’Or winner, then ensured the European heavyweights’ qualification to the final.
Silva, however, believed City could exact revenge on Real this time around.
“Hopefully yes!” he said in a post-match interview.
“We know how tough it is to play Madrid in this competition, we’ve got to go for it definitely.
“We always go for it, but we feel the team is very, very confident at the minute.
“I think we’re going through it,” he added.
This is Manchester City’s third consecutive semi-final appearance advancing to the final only once in 2021 but lost to Chelsea 1-0.
