Pep seeks flawless game against Kop

"In football, anything can happen", said Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola with a shrug, as he looked ahead to Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg where his team have to overcome a 3-0 deficit against Liverpool.

But Klopp insists that his side are not favourites for the tie, pointing to the fact they lost at the Etihad 5-0 earlier in the season. We are only in the lead. "It's complicated, but you need nights that make you understand it", he said. "Next season we will be better".

City can win the Champions League in the near future, he said.

Guardiola admits that nothing but a "perfect" game will suffice for his team to get through. The flawless scenario is to go through, but park the emotional game. You have 90 minutes and everything can happen and only we can do is try and we will see. "We have 90 minutes plus extra time and what we've shown this year - even in the last game we created a lot of chances in a few minutes and the opponents know that".

The other game sees Barcelona travel to Rome with just as impressive first-leg lead after a 4-1 win in Catalunya.

They can compete in Leverkusen with 70 or 80 per cent effort and probably win anyway.

"I knew before they can concede goals and we can concede goals and lose", he said n Monday.

"I liked the performance against Roma because it was truly very hard".

"They need to come at us, but we want to play our game".

They were 3-0 up at halftime in Sevilla in their group stage match in November but ended up drawing 3-3 after a second-half comeback was completed with an added-time equaliser from Guido Pizarro.

Manchester City were eliminated last season in the last 16 by AS Monaco and it would be a disappointment for them to fail to make the last four after such a dominant season domestically.

"The club moved forward really fast and then Pep Guardiola has changed a lot".

After Salah's opener, however, Klopp's side started to go through the gears, making the game their own.

And he believes the all-English showdown will come down to Liverpool's defence, rather than City's attack - despite the fact that City failed to muster a single shot on target in their first meeting.

Sergio Aguero is back and loves scoring against the Reds, so 4/1 for the Argentine and Mo Salah - who should be fit to start - to find the net is a tasty from Sun Bets.

"They are a team that like to play long balls", the Brazilian told a news conference.
