Carlo Ancelotti has earmarked Manchester City as a potential threat to Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages. The 54-year-old is keen for his side to maintain the form that brought 16 points in Group B, but feels City are the team to avoid after Manuel Pellegrini's men finished second in their pool.
"I think that Manchester City will be the most dangerous team among those who finish second in their sections", Ancelotti said. "For us, it's important to continue along this path and look to get even better".
Ancelotti was happy with the application of his side in Copenhagen. He said: "That was a serious game that wasn't at all easy. My players did well and showed good attitude and solid play. The Real Madrid shirt motivates everyone here; it ensures the players give their all in every match".
