Man City make too many mistakes to win Champions League - Pep Guardiola

MANCHESTER, ENGLAND - AUGUST 16: Pep Guardiola, manager of Manchester City speaks to the media during the press conference at Manchester City Football Academy on August 16, 2019 in Manchester, England.

Despite topping the group after easing to back-to-back wins without conceding, Pep Guardiola's men have made a stuttering start in the Premier League with two defeats and a draw in their first nine games.

Those dominant displays put the Premier League champions top of their CL group heading into the Atalanta tie.

Even under Guardiola, they've come up short in recent years and haven't gone any further than the quarter-finals.

Before the 2019/20 season got under way, the Citizens were tipped as one of the favourites to win the latest edition of the Champions League.

Pep Guardiola and his City team have had a couple of indifferent results in the Premier League but they have been flawless in the Champions League thus far, and will aim to keep that record intact on Tuesday evening.

Liverpool could potentially be without Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joel Matip for their Champions League clash away to Genk on Wednesday. "We still are not ready", he said, according to GiveMeSport.

Since his Champions League debut for Man City in September 2015, Raheem Sterling has had a hand in 24 goals in the competition (15 goals, nine assists), five more than any other English player in that time. We at The Hard Tackle are predicting a 3-1 triumph for Manchester City that will keep their winning start in this season's Champions League intact.

"I remember we were suffering for 90 minutes and at the end we crossed the ball and I don't know why I was there, but I was there. When we talk about (improving in the) boxes, it's always the defence but it is in front too". Having failed to score a goal in his last two appearances in the league, the 24-year-old will be keen on finding the back of the net on Tuesday and fire his team to a win.
