Manchester City are ready to embark on anew CHampions League adventure. One that hopefully ends better than last time. Wednesday’s clash is the first European match following August’s disappointing quarter-final exit to Lyon in the 2019/20 tournament.

It’s also the beginning of looking ahead to the start of an intensive period that will see Man City play European fixtures every week up until the November international break. Sterling says the City squad are excited to try and kick on in Europe and make up for the frustration of that Lyon result.

“It’s always good to play in the Champions League… especially with the difficult result we had in Portugal (against Lyon),” said Sterling as he looked ahead to the Porto clash.

“So, it’s great to have another try at it.

“Let’s just go in it, enjoy it and see where it takes us!”

“Coming back from the international break we knew we needed a good performance and to pick up points to kick-start the season,” Sterling added.

“Saturday’s result definitely gives us confidence (looking ahead).”

The first step in this new European campaign is to start with a win. Let’s see if it happens.
