After the match ended, Pep Guardiola and Zinedine Zidane shook hands, and a picture of the coaches spread inside the Etihad Stadium, talking together, while all the players of the two teams were waiting for them inside the dressing rooms.

Guardiola and Zidane talked together for several minutes, so the media reported on what happened between the “Citizens” and “Merengue” coaches after the meeting ended.

The Spanish newspaper “AS” indicated that Guardiola was asked about the conversation he had with Zidane, and he replied: “I wanted to congratulate him on crowning his team with the Spanish first division title, I also asked him about the health of his family, and maybe we will have dinner together and talk someday.”

According to “AS”, Guardiola is the only coach who managed to “eject” Zidane’s team from the Champions League in one of its elimination rounds, as the French coach led his royal arsenal in three consecutive seasons during which he has crowned the title, but he failed to continue this streak and fell Friday in front of Guardiola’s battalion, who will continue his fight for the continental title.

Manchester City knocked Real Madrid out of the 16th round of the Champions League, after it repeated its victory over the 2-1, due to Raphael Varane, who directly caused his team’s goal to shake two goals.

Varane committed a terrible mistake in the 9th minute of the first half inside the area, so Jesus snatched the ball from him and passed it towards Raheem Sterling, who easily followed it into the net.

Real Madrid managed to equalize when Rodrygo passed a perfect ball into the area, and Benzema followed it into the net (28).

Varane committed another fatal mistake when he returned the ball to his goalkeeper, but Jesus defeated it from above Courtois to give his team the lead again (68).
