Man City midfielder Rodri says the club are in good spirits as they prepare to take on Real Madrid in the Champions League.

“For sure, we are in a good mood,” he said via the club’s website.

“We are so confident in ourselves and very excited for the game tomorrow.”

“We have made a great effort since we came back. The team is in a good mood. We are calm and passionate and we are ready for the match.”

“It’s been a long time since the last game but we’ve been thinking about this game since. We are so focused but we know it’s going to be tough.”

“There are two games and we won on their pitch but we need to show we are better. We’ve got the chance we want to have. If we play a good match, we a chance.”

“It depends on us. We need to show we can win this Champions League – not just this match.” Rodri added.

“We need to show we are better than anyone and the way we know this team is the only way we can get success.”

It promises to be an exciting match-up when both sides meet in a crunch clash tomorrow.
