Manchester Metropolis have suffered an harm scare after Kevin De Bruyne missed coaching on the eve of their Champions League conflict with Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday. No side has ever lost 13 consecutive away games in the Champions League (Spartak Moscow also lost 12 between October 2000 and October 2006).
Dinamo Zagreb president Mirko Barisic made it clear he wanted €35-40m to let the player go, and that made things a lot more hard. So I will try to do my best for the next period.
The English champions are well on their way to qualification from Group C, having started with a 3-0 win at Shakhtar Donetsk two weeks ago.
This has been alien to Guardiola given his background as a player and manager at Barcelona and also after working at Bayern Munich.
After winning five of the last six domestic trophies on offer, the European Cup is now the last major target for City and Guardiola.
After playing on Sunday the following week they were back in their habitual spot with a 4-0 win over Brighton.
"So we about - if I change if I win this competition (Champions League)".
"That's a reality of our club, we have to accept it". They can play though, so we might even see a visitor to the Etihad have a bit of a go, press higher and look to force the errors they want. "I am sorry, I am not going to live the next 10 months thinking if I don't win the Champions League it would be a disaster because my life is quite good". "It depends on him in terms of physical regeneration after the games".
Dinamo Zagreb ended a run of 11 consecutive Champions League losses with victory over Atalanta on MD1, only once have they won in successive games in the competition (back-to-back wins in November 1998).
"The only way is to say to our fans "come on, come join us, make the stadium full and support us in the bad moments" because these guys deserve it". Assuming an injury, David Silva and Bernardo Silva, who were both benched at the weekend, will start either side of Rodrigo in midfield.
