Aymeric Laporte fit but Sergio Aguero isn’t for Manchester City trip to Borussia Dortmund

Man City vs Borussia Dortmund

Manchester City travel to Borussia Dortmund for the second leg of their Champions League Quarter Final which takes place tomorrow evening.

City hold a 2-1 lead thanks to Phil Foden’s late goal last week at the Etihad, but with Marco Reus scoring the result is far from a formality.

Pep Guardiola has been speaking to the press ahead of the game and has confirmed that Aymeric Laporte is fit to travel, but Sergio Aguero isn’t making the trip to Germany.

Pep Guardiola was asked if the team are better placed to deal with the competition this season after exiting at this stage in the last three seasons.

“If we win, the people say yes, if we lose people say no. The emotions in a game, many circumstances happen. They are human beings, everybody forgets. We what we do all season, analyse, read it, do what to do to win the game. If we want to win we have to go for it, the way we have done many times this season.” 

“Sometimes not good but the intention was always there and we will do it tomorrow. You need to control your moments in this good way. I didn’t say anything special, we go, analyse, each one to be a leader in the game. The guy who feels more comfortable to take a lead, the guys who are more nervous okay be simple be calm.” 

“We need 11 players and substitutions. It’s a football game, there will be chances, they have scored in the last 27 games. You have to score goals to be effective.”
