“They're in good form and so are we. I'm sure it'll be an exciting game”, said the Welshman.
Two days before the first-leg of the Champions League semi-final, Gareth Bale spoke to Realmadrid TV and Realmadrid.com about the Whites' game against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium (Tuesday, 8:45pm CEST): “It's always nice to go back. We know it will be a difficult game, Champions League semi-finals always are. We hope to have a good game there and bring back a good result”.

“The Etihad Stadium is a nice stadium with a big pitch and a good surface. It's a good setting for a game. We hope to have a big game there and come back with a win. I've had some good games there. I've scored there which is always nice to remember, but we know that this is a new game. They're in good form and so are we. I'm sure it'll be an exciting game”.

The key
“I think that the most important thing is to score away from home. It's also very important not to conceded. At the Santiago Bernabéu we are very strong and obviously we'll have a lot of chances”.

The second-leg
“Playing the second-leg at home is important psychologically. If we get a good result in the Etihad Stadium, back at the Bernabéu our fans are always going to help us. A win is always a good result. As long as we don't lose there, we’ll be very confident at the Bernabéu”.
