As the dust barely settled down after the epic game in the Champions League, the painfully familiar rivals Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur meet on Saturday for the third time in the last 11 days in a fight that can play a decisive role for the top-flight title race.
The second quarter-final match on Wednesday was one of the most memorable European knockout matches, filled with goals, drama and lack of controversy over video replays, without Harry Kane in Tottenham, who helped to score a goal in their first-leg match, thus ensuring victory for the team with the score 1-0.
It is not often for the teams to go through so many joint matches in a short time, because it is not always possible to go head-to-head, going through all the stages of the championship with similar results, but the Spurs and the Citizens managed.
In case of failure at Etihad, Josep Guardiola’s plans to conquer all English football cups did not come true. A loss of Tottenham, in their turn can threaten not only the elimination from the Champions League cherished table, but also skip ahead of rivals such as Arsenal and Chelsea.
