Manchester City vs AS Monaco preview
Monaco has scored three or more goals in six games already in 2017, so scoring a minimum of two against City in the return leg will not be a concern for Jardim. City favoured the left, where Leroy Sane frequently combined with Fernandinho, Kevin de Bruyne and David Silva.
Monaco responded in thrilling fashion with the first of Radamel Falcao's double and a fine effort from livewire teenager Kylian Mbappe.
"[Guardiola and I] get on very well".
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said the experience of Tuesday's exhilarating 5-3 Champions League victory over ASMonaco would stand his side in good stead in the competition.
"It was just a insane game", he said. "I am happy for him, he is a good professional and a nice guy, and back at his level scoring goals". Mauricio Pochettino's side were soon bundled into the Europa League, where they're now scrapping to stay in the competition against unknown Gent. He has had to make do with Aleksandar Kolarov and it says everything about City's options that the Serbian left-back, who almost joined Besiktas last summer, is the centre-back who Guardiola trusts the most.
But he also stressed they will not be looking simply to defend the lead during the game in France on March 15, which he expects to be another contest full of attacking play where the Blues will need to score again if they are going to seal a place in the last eight.
On the other hand, Monaco boss Jardim said: "They are strong in the transition, they have five forwards at some point when they pour forward".
Why City's full-backs will keep going forward City and Monaco both used the flanks when they attacked on Tuesday.
Champions League first leg knockout tie.
"They (Monaco) play in that way - they attack more and more".
As for his penalty save, Caballero added: 'I think I took a good decision.
A storming Mbappe break moments later was ultimately stopped by City's centre-back pairing of Stones and Nicolas Otamendi, before Djibril Sidibe saw his 11th minute shot blocked en route to goal.
"It was my dad who said that, and he spoke about clubs that I might have been interested in in the past", he said.
Toure, looking lean and fit, started a Premier League game against Watford on December 14 and has played every match since, excelling as the team's deep-lying midfielder and no longer the box-to-box player that City fans have been used to seeing. I congratulate both teams.
Two of the game's goalkeeping greats, Iker Casillas and Gianluigi Buffon, will face off for perhaps the final time over the two-legged encounter.
