Jamal Musiala has emerged as a rising star in world football lately, following his breakthrough at Bayern Munich.

At the age of just 19, the youngster has become a valuable member of the attacking team of Bayern, one of the strongest clubs in Europe. He has featured in almost 100 competitive matches for the Bavarians, racking up 24 goals and 15 assists.

Musiala, though, has recently raised a few eyebrows with his comments on Real Madrid, labelling the club as ‘mythical’.

“Real Madrid is a mythical club,” said Musiala (h/t Madrid Zone), whose comments come just before Bayern Munich’s contest against FC Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League.

With the German whizkid recently missing out on the prestigious Kopa Trophy and the Golden Boy Award, he will have a point to prove as he takes on a Barcelona squad that is likely to feature the winner, Gavi, in the middle of the park.

Musiala’s ability to run rings around the opposition defence could be useful as Bayern look to take advantage of Barça depleted backline.

Musiala, though, is one of few players in the current Bayern squad, who has not faced Real Madrid in their professional career.

The youngster, however, will be looking forward to meeting the Whites in the latter stages of the competition, with Bayern and Madrid tagged as two of the favourites to win the Champions League this season.

Real Madrid players will be pumped up as they take on Manchester City on Wednesday, in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Real Madrid face a daunting task of beating Man City at the Etihad, after drawing 3-3 in the first leg. It must be noted that Los Blancos do not have a good record against Man City, losing twice in their last three meetings.

Vinicius Jr. pumped to defeat Man City

Despite the might of the opposition, confidence and optimism remain high in the Real Madrid camp, with Vinicius Jr., in particular, determined to defeat Man City, reports MARCA.

The Brazilian considers Man City as their main rival, especially given the way Real Madrid have performed against the English champions in recent years.

In the last three meetings between these two sides, Man City have won twice in 2020 and 2023, while Real Madrid secured a majestic victory in 2022.

Man City certainly have the home advantage heading into this fixture, but their might could be tested against a Real Madrid side keen on proving a point.

Vinicius takes Barça win as a reference

Vinicius Jr.’s hopes of defeating Man City and reaching the semifinal stage have been reinforced by the belief that the club can turn things around, just as they did against Barcelona last season.

Back in April 2023, Real Madrid and Barcelona locked horns in the semifinal of the Copa Del Rey. Real Madrid succumbed to a 0-1 defeat in the first leg and required a turnaround in the second leg at Camp Nou.

Sure enough, Real Madrid players stepped up to the plate and secured a majestic 4-0 victory to secure a place in the Copa Del Rey final. Vinicius and Karim Benzema, in particular, were the star performers for Los Blancos.

Although one would expect Man City to offer a much tougher fight, Vinicius remains confident of the club’s ability to stage a turnaround, as the two teams lock horns on Wednesday.
