It’s all about status and background. Column by Konstantin Krinsky.

Real Madrid lost away to Manchester City in the Champions League semi-final second leg. Based on the sum of two games (1:1, 2:0), Josep Guardiola’s team went to the main game of the tournament. Why this defeat means little to Madrid – in the column of Konstantin Krinsky.

It is important that Man City win the Champions League. You need it to go to the next level.

No matter how much money the sheikhs inflate Manchester City, the club will not surrender to the heights of the European Cup. The same story with PSG: domestic tournaments have ceased to excite and collect. Two or three titles in a row? Somehow it doesn’t matter. Multiple FA/French Cups? OK that’s fine. But the Champions League, yes, I want to, but I can’t.

Josep Guardiola took his own Guardiol MS to the maximum: a great system that this season has recovered novelties. Erling Haaland was the main one, thanks to him the team flies lightly to the title in England and with relief to the Champions League final. For a long time the Spanish specialist was expected to win the coveted tournament: because all his work inside Great Britain is no longer catchy. They just get used to it.

It is incredibly important for City to win the Champions League, it is simply necessary for self-identification. The club has long been using the “top” prefix, but it will not jump higher. There, where the hegemons, monsters and long-term elite of Europe feast: Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern. How do you want to go there, but without a Champions League win, they won’t get him there. There is not enough achievement. Meanwhile, Manchester City is not a superclub. If they lose in the Champions League, at any stage, the team will remember this, be showered with criticism and again find fault. What else does Guardiola lack? What other players to buy him and how much time to give him?

For Real Madrid, this is just the Champions League semi-final. The club did not lose anything after the defeat

So what is the difference between a super club and a top club? Their defeat in the Champions League or the absence of a title in a given season is simply a failure. Lost in the Champions League semi-final? Well, nothing, next season we will win this Champions League. The club’s reputation, based on the crazy achievements of the past, does not allow us to think otherwise. The coach will change, the team will be updated, a new president will be elected; all this will not affect the status of the club and its position in European football.

Real Madrid already lost to Manchester City in the Champions League playoffs: 1-2 home and away in the 2019/2020 season. Has the status of the Madrid club changed in any way? Not at all – he took the trophy two years later, melting City in the semifinals (3: 4, 3: 1). It confirmed the reputation of the superclub in which they want to play, because they not only pay a lot there, but because it is prestigious, the best partners in the world, victory in the Champions League and belonging to a unique DNA. Real Madrid won their 14th European Cup last year. How many did City take? Google it.

By the way, about the formation of the concept of “Real”:

There are no longer galacticos at Real Madrid. I don’t want to fail like Barcelona

For Real Madrid, this is just the Champions League semi-final. Yes, unfortunate and sad. But no more! And for City, this is the semifinal of a lifetime, which brought them one step closer to the elite. He came closer, but didn’t let him in.

To do this, you need to defeat Inter in Istanbul.
