Manchester City play very good this season and they still believe that can make something in the Champions League this season. In Premier League they are standing at the second position, with 8 points less than leader, so they still hope that can win the title, but it will be very hard. However, the match against Monaco in the 1/8 finals is very important for them and they will try to make good result upfront their supporters. Their manager Pep Guardiola said a lot of nice things about their opponents. “They don’t need too many chances to score goals. A complete team – the most successful team in Europe in terms of scoring goals.” – said Guardiola. The newcomer Gabriel Jesus is still out due to injury, so it means that their top scorer Sergio Aguero should start the game in the attack. Their captain  is still injured, so he will miss this game. Home side is in a good form and they are unbeaten in the last 6 games in all competitions.

Monaco play amazing this season in Ligue 1, where they are standing at the top of the table and they are on a good way to win the title. The group phase in the Champions League, Monaco finished at the top position, so they want to continue with good performance and make good result against Manchester City. “We have changed a lot of players over the last three seasons and we’re back in the last 16 again. That’s great because it shows that despite all the changes we’re still able to play at the top level.” – said their manager Leonardo Jardim for the Visitors have amazing attack, so if we take a look have many goals they scored this season, we could’t believe it. Monaco scored in the French Ligue 1, 76 goals in 26 games (average 3 goals per match). Their opponent also like to play open football, so the game between Manchester City vs Monaco could be the one with many goals.
