Manchester City faced Atletico Madrid on Wednesday (April 13) night in the Champion’s League 1/4 final.

Despite booking the ticket to the semi-finals, Pep Guardiola’s side picked up many injuries as a result.

Phil Foden got bandaged up after a head injury, while both Kevin De Bruyne and Kyle Walker left the pitch in the second half.

This could be a real trouble for Pep, as his team is set to face Liverpool at Wembley for FA Cup semi-final on Saturday (April 16).

Talking in his post-match interview after the Atleti clash (via Daily Star), the Spaniard admitted:

“We are in big trouble, so we can’t forget we played three days ago, travelled, come here, have a lot of injuries now and I don’t know what will happen in the next weeks.

 

“But today we celebrate because it is the third time in Manchester City’s history we are in the Champions League semi-finals.

 

We cannot play all the time and score four or five goals, we are human beings – we come from a difficult game against Liverpool.”
