Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has stated that his side will be aiming to score goals when his team host Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk in their second group match of the champions league.
According to report from the BBC Sport, the former Barcelona manager was quoted to say “When we play at home we feel we are going to score goals”.
City who have been unbeaten since this season have scored 27 goals in eight games this season and are currently on top of the premier league.
Guardiola further told BBC Sport that: “We have to be careful and work in our habits and our fundamentals. Always we can do better and this is another test”.
However, Guardiola has warned his players not to underestimate Tuesday’s opponents.
“It is the seventh time I have played against Shakhtar,” said the former Bayern Munich and Barcelona manager.
“The first time we faced them was in the Champions League group stage. My team went to see them and came back saying ‘wow’. I can assure you they were always one of the best teams in terms of playing football. It was always so tough for me.
“My players are going to see how good they are and hopefully I can convince them to take them seriously. Shakhtar deserve all my credit.”m
