Joleon Lescott believes that excessive belief in himself in the Champions League has cost Real Madrid.
Real Madrid shocked Man City in the Champions League semi-finals last season with late goals. But in this season, nothing happened. Man City crushed Real Madrid with a total score of 5-1 in the semi-finals.
Former player Joleon Lescott believes that Real Madrid were expecting a comeback without really trying to get it. Meanwhile, Man City played with much more urgency and determination.
“Today you lost a team fighting to win their first Champions League title against a team that relied on their history in the competition. Manchester City took their chances brutally.”
In this season, Man City is also a better team. Meanwhile, Real Madrid has fallen from last season.
Man City’s superiority in the second leg is reflected in every position on the field. Pep Guardiola’s tactics also worked when Real Madrid were out of possession and confidence was drained.
Real Madrid’s season has officially ended when they also have no chance to win La Liga. Real Madrid’s remaining matches this season will be against Valencia, Rayo Vallecano, Sevilla and Athletic Bilbao in La Liga.
Meanwhile, Man City is aiming for a historic treble. This weekend, Man City can be crowned Premier League champion if they beat Chelsea at Etihad home.
