Guardiola targets Barca scalp


Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is targeting all three points when he faces his former club Barcelona in the Champions League.

Guardiola won the Champions League twice with Barcelona and he will return to the Nou Camp on Wednesday evening with the Blues bidding for a second win in three games in Group C.

After drawing with Celtic in their last game, City find themselves two points behind Barcelona and defeat at the Nou Camp would open the door to their Group C rivals, but Guardiola is only thinking about taking the maximum points.

"I have never thought about the next game thinking a draw would be a good result," Guardiola said.

"Of course it is complicated. No win in Glasgow means we have to take points off Barcelona there or here, and especially in Germany as well.

"We have four games left, we have to win two. We have to make six points to be in the next step. We are going to try to win the first points in the next game. That is sure."

City head into Wednesday's game on the back of a 1-1 draw with Everton in the Premier League.

The Blues dominated the game but had to settle for a draw after Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero both missed penalties.

When asked if would be happy with a draw in Barcelona, Guardiola said: “I don’t know. It depends on the game.

“When you play like Saturday then it is not a good result, but if Barcelona play much better than us maybe it is a good result.”
