We want revenge: Bernardo Silva insists Man City are confident of beating Real Madrid to reach UCL final

Bernardo Silva bullishly predicted that Manchester City are heading to another Champions League final after easing past Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.

Erling Haaland netted his 48th goal of a sensational debut campaign, with City beating the Bundesliga champions 4-1 on aggregate to set up a semi-final date with Real Madrid, as reported by MailOnline.

Silva believes City – beaten finalists in 2021 – will exact revenge on Real, who dramatically knocked them out in extra-time at the same stage last year on a crazy night at the Bernabeu.

‘We will go for it definitely,’ the Portuguese said. ‘We always go for it but we feel the team is very, very confident at the minute. I think we are going through.

‘We are at that point of the season where if you drop your performance in one game you are out of a competition. It is going to be tough but we are going to work very hard to bring some titles home.’

Bernardo Silva celebrates with Erling Haaland after the Man City striker scored against Bayern

Pep Guardiola labelled Haaland an ‘incredible machine’ after he struck City into a lead, becoming the youngest player ever to reach 35 goals in Europe.

And the manager insisted that the aggregate victory was not a fair reflection on the two legs.

‘I’m so happy for three semi-finals in a row to be honest, the result doesn’t show the two games in full view,’ Guardiola said. ‘They are so good, the physicality, the ideas.

‘I’m always impressed when I play against them but this competition is always the details. We lived the opposite part of that last year against Madrid. Tonight we were incredibly solid, defended really well. This is where we’ve improved the most.

‘I don’t feel like we’re better than Bayern at all. Like I didn’t feel Real Madrid were better than us. These games are a coin.

All of the clubs have the feeling that if they want to win this competition, they have to beat Real Madrid.’
