Manchester City

Guardiola confident ahead of Spurs visit

15th April 2019, 13:38 by Gareth Freeman

Pep Guardiola says he is convinced Manchester City will mount a comeback and knock Spurs out of the Champions League.

City entertain Tottenham on Wednesday and face a battle to secure a place in the last four after losing the first leg of their quarter-final tie 1-0 last week.

However, Guardiola is confident his side will be able to fight back and continue their quest for European glory and an unprecedented quadruple - and punters may wish to use their free bet to back City to come out on top.

"If you ask me what is going to happen, we'll be in the semi-finals; that is what I feel right now," he told Sky Sports.

"It's what I felt right after the game and when I reviewed the game. Maybe I'm wrong but what I feel now, we'll be in the semi-finals."

City need to win and if Spurs score they will need to win by two or more goals as they failed to grab an away goal, but Guardiola has no concerns over his side's attacking ability.

He added: "The result is not ideal but it's not a disaster. We are able to score goals and we are going to do it."
