Match preview

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is proud of how his side have approached the new format in the Champions League.

“I would like to tell you what is going to happen tomorrow, but I don’t know. But I am incredibly proud with the way we have behaved the last two or three weeks,” the boss asserted.

“I think it’s an important moment in our careers. I would prefer to be at home, but this is a special situation.

“It is comfortable, it is nice to be here. Hopefully we can do a good game and stay a few more days in this lovely country.

“After lockdown they have been incredibly focused. We accepted the deal to help our club go to the semi-final. The format is what it is. We adapted to the new protocol.

“Now we prepare for Lyon. Tomorrow is the time to be ourselves.

“I want to see my team be who they are, do everything with their soul and their minds and after that the football will dictate whether we deserve it or not.”

If City beat Lyon tonight they will setup a semi-final against Bayern Munich.
