UCL Final: Why Man City Would Be Easier Opponent For Inter Than Madrid —Capello

Legendary Italian coach Fabio Capello believes Manchester City would be a much easier opponent for Inter in the Champions League final than Real Madrid.

Inter booked a place in this season’s Champions League final after overcome city rivals Milan on Tuesday.


After winning the first-leg 2-0 away, Inter then sealed a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture to go through 3-0 on aggregate.

They will now wait for the winner of the second semi-final between City and Madrid which comes up at the Etihad on Wednesday.

Both teams settled for a 1-1 draw in the first meeting at the Bernabeu last week Tuesday.

Ahead of Wednesday’s tie Capello who led Milan to Champions League glory in 1994, claimed that City’s back line has a tendency to let in goals despite often dominating games.

“Like Inter, I would prefer the City defence,” Capello was quoted on Football Italia.

“It doesn’t seem like an extraordinary defence to me, they press but they concede. Real Madrid is difficult because they never give you a look-in in the game.”

Inter would be making a first Champions League final appearance since 2010 when they beat Bayern Munich 2-0.
