Real Madrid star warned he can’t handle the speed and power of Man City star

With Eder Militao unavailable for Carlo Ancelotti for the first leg through suspension, Real Madrid defender Antonio Rudiger would be tasked with stopping Erling Haaland.

Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney believes Rudiger will struggle to handle the speed and power of Haaland.

Rooney told The Times: “He’s a great competitor who likes one-on-one play.

“Still, I don’t think the German defender can handle Haaland, to be honest.

“With Haaland’s speed and power, and his movement in the box, I don’t think any center-back in the world can stop him.”
