Manchester City hosts Monaco in potentially explosive Champions League series

Manchester City hosts Monaco in potentially explosive Champions League series

Aguero forced a good save from Subasic as City continued to look for more goals against a tiring Monaco; and one duly came through Sane, who side footed from close range, from an Aguero pass from the left after the Chilean had been put in on goal by a deft chipped pass over the top from Silva. I want the players to enjoy this moment - because it's attractive. "All of Europe will be watching to analyse us - and kill us if we don't win". That is a huge experience. "It is handsome to me".

City are looking to reach the quarter-final stage for just the second time, but Pep Guardiola's men face a stern test against the Ligue 1 leaders.

Monaco are top of Ligue 1, three points ahead of a Paris St Germain side that thrashed Barcelona last week, having scored 76 goals in their 26 games.

To that end, both teams will be eager to take any advantage they can out of this first leg, and have set themselves up to play as fast as possible because of it.

Guardiola said: "Like a spectator it is so nice to see them".

Pep Guardiola has said how impressed he has been, but Fabinho is wary of any possible mind games in the City's manager's comments. But when he plays attacking midfielder he runs in behind. They are killers in the box. "I'd like to play in the Premier League again, preferably at City because the fans already know me". It will be down to the tactics of the two teams on the night and who executes them best.

Though it was City that scored first through Raheem Sterling, it was Monaco that was in front at the end of the first half following goals from Radmel Falcao and Kylian Mbappe Lottin.

The Colombia worldwide has scored 22 goals in all competitions, with Jardim hailing the player as a great striker. The adventurer in him admires their willingness to commit plenty of players forward. "They attack with a lot of people".

Kim Jong-nam was on his way to the Chinese territory of Macau, where he had been reportedly residing under China's protection. North Korea has vowed to reject the results of any post-mortem and demanded that Malaysia turn over the body immediately.

Zuckerberg envisions Facebook as a 'global community'
Zuckerberg's letter has already received significant attention, with almost 2,000 comments on Facebook alone. His note also spoke extensively about the spread of information on Facebook, including so-called "fake news".

As for City, unless Hart can somehow find himself back into the manager's good books, it looks likely Guardiola will sign a new keeper in the summer after dropping Bravo for Willy Caballero. "I am happy he is back at his level and scoring goals".

Bakayoko kept Kevin De Bruyne quiet and launched attacks from a deep-lying position.

"For me, I am playing better than previous year but maybe statistically a bit worse".

Toure was even omitted from City's squad for the Champions League but he knuckled down, lost about 14 pounds, and waited for his chance. "We are lucky guys".

Monaco's superb form this season has seen a number of their personnel linked with big-money switches to the Premier League. "He is an important player for the club and also for the team". "I still thought 'Wow'".

If that game is half as good as this one then we are in for another treat.

The first, Atletico Madrid took to Bayer Leverkusen for a 4-2 away win in the first leg. Normally, a tight game like that would be the talk of the day but that was until Manchester City and Monaco got together to play in a classic.
