Former Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez insists the club should not feel intimidated when they face Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals.
Pep Guardiola’s side, who lost last season’s final are just two matches away from repeating the feat, but the Spanish giants stand in their way.
The Argentine acknowledges it will be a tight contest between the two sides, but believes City are ready to face the challenge.
“It’s a 50/50 tie”, the Argentine said in an interview with mancity.com.
“I’m very happy to see City in this position, fighting against the greatest teams in Europe.
“It has not been possible to win the Champions League yet, but I think the most important thing is that after ten years City are playing as equals against teams like Real Madrid and as it did on the last tie against Atlético.

“It is very gratifying to see what City have become in these ten years. It is something impressive. We have gone from fighting in the middle of the league table to doing on an equal footing with the biggest (in Europe).
“It is an achievement that we all must feel proud”.
Tevez spent four successful seasons with the Manchester club, and was part of the team that won the first trophy since 1976, an FA Cup, as well as the unforgettable Premier League in 2012.
He then left for Juventus having made 125 appearances scoring 74 goals and lifting three major trophies.
