“They create problems”
In Tuesday’s press conference, Pep Guardiola said:
“To win trophies you have to be solid, not concede chances. When you have the ball, defend well with the ball. What you do with the ball is the best way to defend.
“There are moments we don’t have the ball, set pieces, then we have to defend. You cannot win things if you don’t concede few.
“Riyad, Phil, Gundo, they are not defensive players but they run from day one, solid as a team. Solid tomorrow, it will be difficult to get to the semi-finals.”
“It will be a different game, not like last week. They’re at home with their fans behind them.
“From what I remember from knockout games they have really exciting moments in the Calderon, at the Wanda they create problems, defend and counter.
“They will be more intense in the top half of the field than they were the other night. We adapt and if we’re losing we go with everything to get it back. If we’re on top maybe we sit a bit deeper.”
