Pep Guardiola held his usual press conference before the huge Champions League match v Borussia Monchengladbach. Pep touched on many topics from preparation, his team and much more.

Let’s dive in-

‘We will prepare like a normal game, like the others. We won’t change anything. Little details to adapt a bit.’

‘We are not used to playing them because they play in Germany, but after that we will play our game and try to get a result like we have done so far.’

‘Everything changed a lot, it’s getting better now but can get worse - we have to be sure.’

‘Hopefully for world football, stadiums can be full and people can enjoy the games. But I still feel we have a long way to go before this situation is finished.’

‘No, right now I am thinking about team selection. I am not clear because I need to see how the players recover and feel. We will decide tomorrow.’

“I cannot expect any different. All the teams deserve incredible respect and hopefully they can respect us as well. We will try to get a good result for the second leg and try to win the game.”

“I don’t think teams fear to play us, I think every other team believes they can win. My reaction to possible return of fans is to be calm. I hope so but there is still a long way to go.”

“Quality of the opponents but we have quality too. We’re going to prepare like a normal game, we’re going to tell them what Borussia are as a team like we did against Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton...”

“I cannot expect any different. All the teams deserve incredible respect and hopefully they can respect us as well. We will try to get a good result for the second leg and try to win the game.”

“Football is the most unpredictable game. If you believe everything is under control, you cannot do it.’

Pep’s confidence is admirable and whole not taking any team lightly, you can see his confidence as he speaks.

A great run is in peril as Gladbach will surely be a great challenge. Pep will have the club ready.

Hopefully it ends well for City.
