Shalimov and Mor enjoyed Inter and Manchester City match in Champions League qualifiers

Former head coach of Krasnodar Igor Shalimov and former Spartak football player Edward More on the air “” commented on the results of the matches of the 1/8 finals of the Champions League “Inter” – “Porto” (1:0) and “Leipzig” – “Manchester City” (1:1 ).

– Porto are a difficult team. They seem to have a lot of Brazilians. But they are also well prepared physically. Fifty-fifty in the return match. Yes, away goal regulations have changed. But on the other hand, we are talking about the Italian team.

Manchester City-Leipzig? I think Man City push themselves with the moment they need to win the Champions League. With a rematch like this, they might just win,” Shalimov said.

– Lukaku is overweight and it’s hard for him to play the whole game, so he’s on the bench. Not a single manager in such a game will leave a player on the bench ready for the whole game. I think we underestimate the Portuguese clubs. They are very good teams. Before the game, I thought it would be a draw. Odds? Well, Inter are definitely not a favourite.

Manchester City-Leipzig. In the first half, the German club had no chance. But in the second half, they picked up the pace. And for such a game, it’s far from a bad result for the guests. What I saw is not that, okay, let’s play the second game. They just couldn’t react accordingly to the opponent’s play,” Mor said.

The return matches in these pairs are scheduled for March 14.
