Donne moi la balle, et je fais le reste...

“Unless?”Our aggregate league results vs City, since poch took over:
14/15 - 2-4
15/16 - 6-2
16/17 - 4-2 (Pep’s first season)
17/18 - 2-7
18/19 - 0-1 (so far)
So not entirely impossible...although we haven’t beaten them (or drawn) since they became shit hot last season & on current form for each side, I can’t see anything other than a massacre across the 3 games .
With that said, I think a lot depends on the first leg - crowd will be up for it regardless (unless city score an early goal)...get a result there and who knows what can happen.
I'm not surprised they have got a relatively easy draw they rightly will fancy it knowing how brittle the team is under pressure lately and to deliver in general.Here's some reactions from City fans. They seem pretty happy.
Unfortunately in the big games against the big teams, we get punished for our mistakes and we fail to punish theirs. Until we can flip the script and topsy-turvy that motherfucker, we will be nearly menas with most champions league games it'll come down to mistakes as 9/10 they get capitalised on.
unfortunately i can't see us going 90 let alone 180 mins without making at least one major one. we just need to be perfect for one of the legs (presumably the home leg) and hope for the best. it worked for pool against city last year because they were under so much pressure after the first leg they couldn't play their normal game in the second.
That rule changed about 6 years ago.I think we should forget it and aim for 3rd in PL to guarantee entry next year. Seeing as the rent boys got an easy EL draw they could win it and nick a spot!!
