Manchester City victim of Eurovision?

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola, forced to play his Premier League match against Everton on Sunday (3 p.m.), complained about this postponement which deprives his team of a day of recovery before their semi-final second leg of the League champions against Real Madrid (1-1 first leg). The Citizens coach would have preferred to play the game on Saturday in Liverpool as originally planned but, due to Eurovision being held in the city that day, his wish could not be granted for security reasons. “There’s not much to do, because we have to play on Sunday. Thank you so much. I don’t understand it, but I don’t want to fight for it anymore.”regretted Guardiola.

The Premier League leader, still in the running for a Championship-Cup-C1 treble, faces Everton, a club threatened with relegation, three days before welcoming the people of Madrid for the clash at the top of the Champions League. With a point ahead of their runner-up Arsenal, which nevertheless has one more match, the Citizens cannot afford to rest their executives to favor the match against Real. Carlo Ancelotti’s players, who no longer have any illusions for the title in the Spanish Championship, face Getafe in La Liga this Saturday and will have an extra day off before Wednesday’s meeting.
