Manchester City are going gung-ho as they hope to book their place in the Champions League round-of-16 when they face Lyon tonight.

His side were surprisingly defeated by the French outfit on matchday one, but have claimed victories in each of their three games since then to top Group F.

They will progress to the knockout rounds by drawing at the Groupama Stadium, while a win will guarantee them top spot.

City head into Tuesday evening’s clash on the back of a 4-0 destruction of West Ham in the Premier League, with their opponents also securing a win in their most recent league fixture; Lyon secured a narrow defeat of St-Etienne on Friday night.

The Champions League encounter promises to be thrilling, and you can listen to the full match LIVE on talkSPORT.

What the managers are saying

Bruno Genesio (Lyon): “We have to play the game without a second thought. They are a team above us on paper, we will have to be at 150% for success.”

Pep Guardiola (Man City): “For the people who don’t love us too much, who use money as an argument, then we have failed if we don’t win the Champions League. For the other people, especially our fans, the people who say, ‘OK, we enjoy watching our games, we are happy with what the guys are doing’, I am pretty sure they don’t have regrets about what these guys are doing for the last 12, 14, 15 months every three days.”
