Guardiola discloses only way for Man City to beat Real Madrid in Spain
Pep Guardiola, the Manchester City manager, has urged his players to show their “personality” when they face Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final second leg on Wednesday.
City head to Madrid with a slender 4-3 advantage from the first leg at the Etihad Stadium.
Guardiola has won six times at the Santiago Bernabeu and lost just once in nine visits with City, Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
“I’ve lost and won against them. You play hundreds of times against a rival, you win and lose and none of that (past history) comes into it.
“The talent they have, the only way to beat them is to be better,” Guardiola said.

He added: “To win this competition, in my little experience, you have to overcome the situations that arise and you have to perform very well in two games.
“It’s a good test for us. We have to show our personality in the game. We will play to win.”
