Real Madrid defender Eder Militao: I see myself scoring winner at Man City

Real Madrid defender Eder Militao says he's ready to step in for Sergio Ramos at Champions League opponents Manchester City.

The 22-year-old will be in the starting XI for Los Blancos when they line up in the Etihad Stadium next Friday - with Sergio Ramos being suspended. Real go to City needing to overturn a 2-1 deficit to reach the quarterfinals.

Militao said, "I can imagine it now, in the Champions League, in Manchester.

"The winning goal, with a header. But I wouldn't know how to celebrate it... Nothing is impossible, so I'm going to go for it.

"Madridistas, against City we will not have our captain but I am here. I'm going to have a good match, trust me. We will be victorious."
