Pellegrini targets Champions League glory

Boss feels Man City can conquer Europe

Manuel Pellegrini believes Manchester City can win this season's Champions League if they produce repeats of their performance against Paris St-Germain.

The Citizens beat the Ligue Un champions 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium with Kevin de Bruyne's 76th minute strike ensuring they progressed to the semi-finals 3-2 on aggregate.

The English club restricted Laurent Blanc's side to a handful of half-chance, with two Zlatan Ibrahimovic free-kicks, a Thiago Silva header and an Edinson Cavani chance the only occasions Joe Hart's goal was seriously threatened.

City were even able to brush off a missed Sergio Aguero penalty in the first period and eventually closed out the tie in relative ease, a display which made Pellegrini emphatic when asked if they could win the tournament.

"Of course," he said. "You have to play a very big team but we have a lot of chance if we play against anyone the way we played against PSG.

"We beat Bayern Munich in my first season and lost against Barcelona in the round of 16.

"In my second season, we didn't play well but beat Bayern Munich again and Roma, then we lost to Barca again. This season we won the group and now we beat PSG."

"I really don't understand the criticism - or they don't understand Barcelona have better players.
