Liverpool are in Germany tonight to face Hoffenheim in a bid to secure their return to the Champions League.
A place in the group stages of the competition is at stake over the two legs.
But the Red's return to the big stage continues to be overshadowed by uncertainty surrounding Philippe Coutinho.
Chris Hall reports:
Manchester City have been warned by their manager that they must attack in the Champions League tonight.
Pep Guardiola believe that attempts to sit on their lead against Monaco will end in defeat.
City carry a 5-3 aggregate lead into the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie against the Ligue 1 leaders after a pulsating clash between the two attack-minded sides in Manchester last month.
Manager Guardiola admitted after the first leg his side were unlikely to be able to contain Monaco at Stade Louis II and he maintains attack will be their best form of defence.
Monaco have scored 123 goals in all competitions this season and their loss to City at the Etihad Stadium was their only reverse in 17 games since mid-December.
"Taking the ball and attacking as much as possible is the only way I know to beat this type of team.
"If one team scores 124 goals (actually 123) and you are thinking about only defending for 90 minutes because we won one game 5-3, you kill yourself.
"Monaco are a team created to attack and our team is created to attack, or at least to score goals, so in that way it will be a great game. I invite people to come here and see a good game."
