Man City midfielder Bernardo unsure what to expect from Atletico Madrid

Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva says he's unsure about what to expect from Atletico Madrid.

City host Atletico tomorrow for the first-leg of their Champions League quarterfinal.

Bernardo said, "My very honest answer is we don't know what to expect, if they press high, go low and wait for us. We know they will be aggressive, they'll not give us space. It will be tight, it won't be an open game. The little details will be important in these games. We don't expect an open game, no.

"Maybe the style of play might be similar to some teams in the PL. It's a team with some of the best players in the world. It's not comparable. Club teams in England, most or all don't play like Atletico which makes the game different.

"They are very competitive, organised, with a specific style of play. It wasn't easy for United, Liverpool two years ago. It won't be easy for us but if we follow Pep's plan it will work out."
