MOST COMMENTED

Manuel Pellegrini praised strikers Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Negredo for combining for five goals as Manchester City beat CSKA Moscow 5-2 in UEFA Champions League Group D play on Tuesday, securing qualification for the Round of 16 for the first time in the club’s history. "I think both of them have played really well not only today but the whole season," Pellegrini said. "For Sergio he is in a great moment, because he is not only scoring but his movement and his contribution to the team is important. Álvaro too. They have got the goals they deserve.”

The Chilean tactician added that his whole team is attacking very well at the moment, having scored 12 goals in the past two games. He also singled out Samir Nasri, David Silva, Yaya Toure and Fernandinho for their “impressive” contributions to City’s scoring. He added: "I think we can beat any side now, when we play at our best," he said. "But at this level the most important teams can also beat us – I think the most important teams in Italy, Spain and France are competitive. So we will see where we go now."

In order for City to top Group D, it would need to beat leader Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena when the two meet in the last game of the first round. Bayern has also already qualified for the Round of 16 after winning 1-0 at Viktoria Plzen. Read the original story...
