Man City's Sergio Aguero could be fit for Real Madrid clash

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has said Sergio Aguero could be fit for the Champions League last-16 tie against Real Madrid. 

City go into this tie with a 2-1 advantage after they were victorious at Santiago Bernebeu, but are alive to the fact that Madrid are fired up after winning La Liga last week.

"I think against Madrid everyone will be fit apart from [Benjamin] Mendy, who is suspended," Guardiola told a news conference on Friday.

"In the training sessions everyone will be fit and we'll go for the senior guys for this game."

City have one final Premier League game against Norwich, plus two weeks of training, to prepare for Real Madrid and Guardiola said every player will be watched closely to find out whether they are ready to face Zinedine Zidane's newly crowned Spanish champions.

"The way they play against Norwich and the way they train, I will be paying attention for how they play against Madrid," Guardiola added.

"Every day will be an exam for me as whether they are ready to play this game. Against Arsenal we were not ready. Watford a little bit better but still we need to improve."
