City reached the European semi-finals for only the second time in their history and for the first time under Guardiola with their midweek victory in Germany.

“I would love to have more days to enjoy our qualification, recover better for the game, but the schedule is the schedule and when you are a contender in all the competitions you have this schedule.
“The guys are training well and tomorrow they are going to face one of the best teams in Europe and try to do a good performance to reach the final.”s they aim to keep their historic quadruple bid on track.
