The great football of Europe begins next week with the start of the group stage of the Champions Legue 2020/2021 edition. Like every year, this competition brings together the biggest clubs on the continent to face each other in search of reaching that long-awaited ‘orejona’.
For example, Manchester City has been one of the teams that invested the most money to obtain this trophy, although so far without success. Therefore, Pep Guardiola will seek once and for all to give him his first Champions to all the citizen fans from the hand of a highly competitive team full of great figures.
However, during the press conference this Friday, the Spanish coach revealed that he will not be able to count on Kevin de Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus for what will be the restart of the Premier League after the FIFA date and the start of the Champions next Wednesday.
“De Bruyne is injured. He will be out for several games, but not for long. Gabriel is also injured. There are injuries in some muscles that if you force yourself you can lose yourself for a long time, we have to be careful, “Guardiola said.
“I will try to attack as much as possible and defend as best as possible. We need points and the Champions League is just around the corner, we don’t have time to think,” he added. As you remember, Manchester City will face Arsenal this Saturday for the fourth date of the Premier League.
While on Wednesday, October 21, they will host Porto at the Etihad Stadium for the first date of Group C of the Champions League. It is important to note that the citizens’ team was eliminated from the top European club competition in the quarterfinal against Lyon of France.
