Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is looking forward to facing Tottenham in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Friday's draw saw the Premier League rivals drawn against each other with the first leg set to take place at Tottenham's new stadium on April 9 or 10 with the return leg at the Etihad the following week.
City have got the better of Mauricio Pochettino the last three times they have met but Guardiola insists that will count for nothing over the two legs.
"We know each other quite well, we played many times over the last years. It’s 50/50, we try to get that before that game in the best condition possible," Guardiola said.
"It happens, it’s the fixtures.
"We travel to London. London is closer than going to Spain or Catalonia.
"When you have four teams in the Premier League in the same draw you have a chance to get one of them. I know quite well the quality of this team."
The draw means City and Tottenham will play each other three times in the space of 11 days and Guardiola believes each game will influence what happens in the next.
"In that position it was three different competitions. It's game by game, the first games influences the second one, the second one influences the third," he said.
"We can't think about it too much yet, it's game by game."
Manchester United have been drawn to face Barcelona in the last eight and Guardiola is predicting a fascinating tie.
"Two incredible stadiums, incredible clubs, incredible players on both sides," Guardiola said. "In the Champions League you get fascinating games and it will be two great games to watch.”
