Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has warned his players that their UEFA Champions League, UCL, semi-final second-leg tie against Paris Saint-Germain at Etihad on Tuesday will be tough.
Guardiola gave the warning on Monday during his pre-match press conference.
The Spaniard wants his players to face PSG without emotions, adding that they need to be calmer and know what to do against the visitors.
Man City defeated PSG 2-1 in the first-leg encounter last Wednesday in Paris.
“From my experience, the semi-finals are always difficult,” Guardiola said.
“You play with the result of the first leg, you play with your mind on the final, and sometimes you forget what you have to do – win the game you are playing.
“The semi-final second leg is always the difficult one – always has been like this. Final is completely different.”
“I know what we are playing for,” Guardiola added.
“In these types of games, you don’t need many emotions. You need to be calmer and know what to do.
“I don’t need to tell anyone – the backroom staff, the players, the chefs – everybody knows how important it is. That is the situation.
“Stay at home tonight, arrive in the afternoon, have a pre-match meal and go to the stadium.”
