Key Quotes

Pellegrini: “We are not thinking where we are going to get to in this year's Champions Leauge we are just thinking about tomorrow. We want to qualify to the last 16 and after that you must see the draw, the most important thing is tomorrow."

Vincent Kompany “It's important to make a statement. Everything has been so bright for us so far. We have to show our qualities. We have a good team, we should always believe in ourselves and that should be the basis for our Champions League approach."

Massimiliano Allegri: "Our first game is at City and we will try to get points out of that, but it is going to be tough. City are contenders to top this group – and win the Champions League too. No disrespect to Monchenglabach, but I think City, Sevilla and ourselves have the best chance of going through."

Paulo Dybala: "If we play a great match in Manchester, we could forget what’s happened so far in the league. I don’t know yet if I’ll play, the Coach will decide. In any case I’ll try to give everything, score goals and help my teammates."
