Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola has confessed to being "surprised" by Man City's poor return of points in this season's Champions League.
Speaking to ITV Football's Gabriel Clarke ahead of tonight's clash at the Etihad, Guardiola said:
"I'm surprised they have two points, yeah, but the group is not easy. Roma is in the top in Italy and CSKA Moscow is always uncomfortable.
"There are five, six, seven teams who are focused to win the Champions League. I think Manchester City is one of them.
"They have quality, but they don't have the history and sometimes these little details, like the t-shirt, makes the difference."
