First on Wednesday morning, Pep Guardiola's staff will provide Manchester City manager with a carefully annotated 

description of the Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid. Around the same time,

his colleague Carlo Ancelotti in the Spanish capital will receive a similar one.

The dossier includes short video excerpts highlighting some important tactical details.

There are also photos that provide a snapshot of the rare

and noticeable flaws in the player's position, 

or rushed photos that don't expand open areas.

Perhaps a huge arrow will appear in the faint shadows. Of course there will be many figures.
