Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has eased fears in north-west England that they could be without midfielder Rodri Hernandez, declaring he will be fit to play against Real Madrid.
The Spanish midfielder has been a crucial part of Guardiola’s side in recent years and even more so this season, scoring against Bayern Munich in the last round of the Champions League.
He came off in the final minutes of their 3-0 win against Everton on Sunday, apparently with an injury.
However, Guardiola said after the match that “he will be there on Wednesday”, which will be a relief for the home side from the Etihad.
It looks like City and Real Madrid will have more or less a full squad available for their clash on Wednesday night.
Eduardo Camavinga was one of four players struggling with pre-match problems for Carlo Ancelotti, but all four have traveled with the Real Madrid squad.
