Germany: Man City Schalke clash will be 'real tough' - Guardiola

Manchester City's current standing as leading team in UK's Premier League will have no bearing on the team's performance against FC Schalke 04 in the first leg of the teams clash in the Champions League round of sixteen. Manchester City Manager Pep Guardiola made the remarks during a pre-match presser in Gelsenkirchen on Tuesday.
"So Manchester City has to win, how many 4? 5? That is not going to happen my friend, it is a complete different competition and it is tough, it's real tough," said the Manchester City chief.
Manchester City is facing Schalke in the German team's stadium VELTINS-Arena on Wednesday. The German team is currently fourteenth in the Bundesliga ranking.
