Man City vs Schalke LIVE: Updates from Champions League clash as Guardiola eyes quarters

1

City boast a 3-2 lead heading into the second leg of their Champions League round of 16 clash.

A late Raheem Sterling goal handed City the advantage heading into the Etihad clash on Tuesday evening.

Pep Guardiola’s men are hoping to reach the quarter-finals to join Manchester United and Tottenham in the hat.

However, the City boss has warned his stars they will struggle to win the Champions League this season.

“We cannot deny how strong other teams are,” said Guardiola.

“You have to dream, to point as high as possible and at the same time accept there are other teams thinking the same.

“All the clubs that are in the knockout stages want to win this title. It is difficult.

“This competition is judged that when you are out of the last 16 it is a big disaster. My perspective is completely different.

“People say it is easy. Imagine to get into the last eight teams in Europe? Of course we want to win it but the other teams also have this desire.

“People think that because Real Madrid are not there, this competition will be easy.

“Of course I thought they were the favourites but there still remains incredible clubs to beat.”
