Pep Guardiola preview

"It wasn’t bad playing five at the back and scoring four (versus Atalanta)!

"We will prepare for both options (not playing five at the back). They are strong and when you lose the ball, they have fast players on the counter.

"Atalanta are doing incredibly well in Italy and it’s a tough league so it’s a warning. We have a job to do, to prepare. We try to discover what they do because the players don’t know them."

Rodri preview

"It wasn’t surprising they beat Atalanta. In the Champions League, there are no bad teams - you have to be alert.

"I have played in their stadium when I played against Croatia. The environment with the fans is incredible.

"It’s going to be very tough. They scored four versus Atalanta, that means they have good quality."
