Manchester City dealt well with the pressure from Bayern Munich – Manchester City star admits

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne believes City dealt with the pressure of playing Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.

We held a 3-0 advantage heading into the second leg with the German champions, before a 1-1 draw in Munich ensured our progression.

“I think going into the semis is what we wanted to do,” De Bruyne said.

“I’ve played here before and in the beginning you know they’re going to come aggressive and they’re going to try and put you under pressure.

“But, I think we dealt well with the pressure. We defended when there was a tough moment and at certain times we created what we needed to create.

“In the difficult moments and I think it was a very smart game from us.

“You need to prepare everything and that’s what we did. We go again on Saturday.”
