Rio Ferdinand insists Man City have the 'personality and character' to avenge last season's Champions League semi-final defeat by Real Madrid before Kevin De Bruyne rescues 1-1 draw for the visitors

Rio Ferdinand believes that Manchester City can overcome their past Champions League disappointment and defeat Real Madrid in the semi-final. Last year, Real Madrid knocked City out of the competition before going on to lift their 14th European Cup trophy. However, Ferdinand thinks that City has the right mentality and character to move on from last year's loss.

The addition of Erling Haaland has given City a different edge this season, and teammate Rodri believes they have different weapons to defeat the Spanish giants. The match has been billed as a game that could have been the final, with big players set to battle it out on both sides.
