Brighton’s Bernardo Wary of Manchester City Threat
Brighton full-back Bernardo admits that his side are huge underdogs as they face Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on Saturday evening.
The Seagulls are 22/1 to win the game with some bookmakers and Brighton full-back Bernardo concedes that the game will be tough given City’s qualities.
In an interview with Goal Brasil, Bernardo said, “It’s difficult. Let's see, but it will be a great game anyway. It is very clear that we are the underdogs. I think maybe a lot of people expected us not to make it to the semi-finals.
“But if we look at the games we played in the competition, we really exceeded expectations. The last game, against Milwall, for me was perhaps the most iconic game of my career, because we were 2 goals down and we took it to extra time.
“So everything can happen in football, so it's a sport that people like so much. It is where the impossible can always happen and in this match can happen the same. The pressure is all on them, we have no expectation at all, we can play more relaxed.”
