Guardiola: Pleasure playing Tottenham in the Champions League

16 Mar 2019, 00:45

 Pep Guardiola has said that it is a pleasure to have Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Man City were drawn against Spurs in what will be their first ever meeting in the continental competition and Guardiola feels the tie will be 50/50 as there would be no clear favourite. The first leg will be held on April 9, with the return leg at the Etihad Stadium on April 17, before a Premier League clash between the pair in Manchester just three days later.

"It happens. It's a pleasure to be in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. We know each other quite well. We have a lot of respect. It's 50/50. We'll try to get in the best condition possible and try to do a good two games. Every team has their strengths and weaknesses, and it's the same with us. All I'm concerned with is Tottenham. Huge respect and I know them quite well. It's hard, but if you talk about any other team in the Champions League it would be the same." Guardiola told Sky Sports.

Guardiola saw his side eliminated by Liverpool in last season's Champions League at the same stage but would be eager to progress this time around.
