Monaco will be a challenge and City will have to be at their best if they are to go through in the Champions League, says Pep Guardiola.
Speaking to the press, he said: “I am really impressed how good Monaco are. They are killers in the box. Both holding midfielders are intelligent, physical, strong.
“It is the most beautiful competition to play. We have to do our best. If not, we don’t have chance to get to next round.
“City’s recent history is quite good, but they weren't here for a long time. Europe will be analysing us, to kill us if we don’t win.”
The coach did however confirm that City’s captain won’t feature in the Round of 16 clash.
“Vincent Kompany is not ready for tomorrow. I think it won’t be a lot longer. The Huddersfield game he will be ready,” he said.
