'You'll never get what he got at City': Can Kevin De Bruyne, who scored again in the knockout stage, be equally decisive for the Devils? | sports

FC Copenhagen also met with Kevin De Bruyne on Tuesday evening. As a striker and scorer, 'KDB' was once again important for City in the Champions League. “He's on his way to his best form at the right time,” says Mark DeGrace.

Paris Saint-Germain (3 times), Real Madrid (3 times), Lyon, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Dortmund, Atletico Madrid, RB Leipzig and now also Copenhagen. The list of opponents De Bruyne has been able to score against in knockout matches is growing. With his goal in Copenhagen, the Red Devil has 12 goals in the final stage. Striking: Six of those twelve goals were openers.

In the group stage, the number is currently three. “KDB” is traditionally written at important moments. “He also has to take that form into the next big matches towards the semi-finals and the final. And also include the English title fight,” Degres said. “You have a feeling he is growing into his best form in time.”

The European Championships will start again in Germany in June. Can KDB shine there too, surrounded by Lukaku, Doku, Trossard,…? “Belgium has a good team when it comes to names,” Mulder says. “But you'll never get what De Bruyne got at City. As a coach, I would have done everything I could to do it that way, but it didn't work out. The Red Devils don't have someone like Bernardo Silva, for example. Degryse takes over.” City, De Bruyne is favorite in every way. They have the best team. This is not demons. So you shouldn't expect miracles from De Bruyne. You can't say: “Only De Bruyne will make us European champions.” “He is our most important player, but you cannot put all the pressure on his shoulders.”
