Another thriller on the cards as Monaco host Man City

  • Yaya Toure shares a joke with Manchester City starlet Sane as training continues

Guardiola's attempt to combat Monaco's forwards by going with an attacking approach backfired as City struggled to gain a first-half foothold. "My mistake was being not able to convince them".

"I think there'll be a lot of space and attacking intent tomorrow and, perhaps, a lot of goals".

"In the dressing room, those kind of games are warnings, you know, because after the game against Stoke we went into the dressing room after and we saw Barca win 6-1 and you cannot imagine how the European Cup is so serious this year, and we can't underestimate Monaco". That put City in front on aggregate, but Monaco turned the tie back in its favour when Bakayoko headed home from a Thomas Lemar free kick.

Three seasons ago, Manchester City were Premier League champions for a second time while they reached the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in the club's history last season. "We forgot to do that in the first half", he said.

"Falcao feels better but I do not know if he is fit to start".

1/10 - In fact, Bayer Leverkusen has lost nine of its last 10 Champions League knockout games (W1), its only win in that run coming against Atletico Madrid (1-0, February 2015). But the problem was the first half. The goal we conceded from a set-piece broke our tempo, our rhythm and our enthusiasm when we were on top.

"The second half didn't reflect the whole scoreline".

As with fighting in Mosul, Iraq, current plans for Raqqa will require cooperation between varying forces in defeating ISIS. Army Stryker combat vehicles were recently spotted in Northeast Syria, prompting Air Force Col.

"The best way (to defend) is score goals, attack as much as possible", Guardiola told reporters in Monaco on Tuesday.

"They are a strong side and we have already faced them, but any team we get drawn with in Nyon will be a tough matchup".

That was in 2003-04, when they advanced to the semifinals on away goals after losing 4-2 to Real Madrid in the first leg.

"I felt sorry for Stones, he was isolated", the former Manchester United defender said. We had a really hard group last year and then we had to play PSG and Real Madrid, but I don't think this year has been any easier.

That victory sealed City's place in the semi-finals, and the serial trophy victor could yet land a cup double in his first season in charge. We weren't there. We wanted to show personality, not to let them think, but they could pass and pass the ball.

Whether Manchester City will ease through the game or Monaco will cause an upset remains to be seen, but it is for sure going to be one nail-biting game.
