Bernardo Silva has opened up on how Manchester City were able to tear Real Madrid apart to reach the Champions League final for the second time in three seasons.
The Premier League champions ran riot in the second leg of their semi-final on Wednesday, trouncing Los Blancos in a 4-0 win.
Silva kicked off proceedings with a first-half brace, before a late own goal from Eder Militao and one last strike from Julian Alvarez sealed a memorable night for Man City.
Speaking to UFABET post-match, Silva insisted that his side’s mental toughness and state of mind helped them push through at a stage where they fell last season.
“It is a beautiful night for us. We know it would be tough but to beat this Real Madrid team 4-0 at home was wonderful. Hopefully we will win it.
“We know how tough they are. They pushed us but we were very resiliant, we were passionate but organised at the time.
“My performance in the first game in Madrid was not the one I wanted and I wanted to compensate that. Today I had to do better for my team-mates and the fans and that is what I tried to do.
“I am small but good with my head!”
