Cape Town - AS
Monaco play-maker Bernardo Silva believes the French outfit have what it
takes to overcome their first-leg deficit against Manchester City in
the Champions League last-16.
City beat Monaco 5-3 at the Etihad Stadium, but Silva remains
confident the Ligue 1 leaders can overcome manager Pep Guardiola's team
The Portuguese told FourFourTwo: "Yes, we will have to make an outstanding match. We know that City are in form right now.
"But with our supporters we can do it. We have this ambition, then we will see.
"We know we must not concede a goal and we know that is not easy against this team.
"We're going to try to concentrate and not make the same mistakes
that we made. We also know that offensively we are able to score."
The last time Monaco progressed past the last-16 stage of the
Champions League was in 2004 when they lost in the final to Jose
Mourinho's FC Porto.
Meanwhile City manager, Pep Guardiola dismissed suggestions that fatigue could hamper his side's chances of progressing to the next stage of the Champions League.
"It doesn't matter," Guardiola told the press when asked about the energy levels of his players.
"When you are going to play the 'eighth-finals' of the Champions
League in Monaco, just the desire to be in the quarter-finals will put
our little tired situation away.
Kick off is at 21:45.
