YaYa Toure and Roberto Mancini talk about mistakes in Madrid and look ahead to tonight's crucial CL game against Dortmund.

Roberto Mancini's Thoughts


Toure's Thoughts

Tonight's game is a really crucial fixture, an almost must-win fixture. Dortmund will, in all likelihood, be Man City's challengers for second place in this group. Knowing this, we must take 3 points against what is a very young and dangerous side, a team with one of Europe's most promising up and coming coaches.

Man City should have enough, but only if the lessons of last seasons CL games and this seasons Madrid game have been taken on board.

Patience is crucial in CL games, caution will be needed along with a increased concentration when City don't have the ball. We must concentrate and hold our defensive shape better against good opposition, who will no doubt put City under pressure in spells of this evenings football match.

Prediction

Dzeko should start against German opposition who he will know well. Our big game players should see us through.

2-1 win to Man City.
