Pep Guardiola preview

“Always when I play against Leeds it is difficult.

“Last season we dropped five points against them. Jesse Marsch made a great job in Salzburg, the US, Leipzig - it’s perfect for him.

“Many teams in England are playing this way. I have a lot of respect. It’s between the Champions League semi-finals, so maybe it’s one of the toughest.

“It’s tougher because Leeds is tough. I know how the crowd is, they are fighting because they need points. We need points too. I saw the team today and they are incredibly focused.

“Everyone in the club knows what we are playing for. We know what we have to do.

“We make an incredible last three games, scored a lot of goals and created chances -  this is what we have to continue to do.

"Sometimes in football you have rewards, other times defeats.

“This is the most important game we have. After Madrid, if we are in the final or not, we have four games and we can focus on the Premier League.

“We have spoken about that. We spoke about what a special team they are and we accept the challenge, we know what we have to do and we will try to do it.”
