Another feast of goals could be in store when Manchester City face Monaco in their Champions League last 16, second leg tie on Wednesday with both managers predicting all-out attack.

The Catalan's side take on the Ligue 1 leaders at the Stade Louis II on Wednesday night in the return leg with the tie nicely poised following the opening encounter at the Etihad Stadium three weeks ago.

"When a team scores 123 goals it is because they are able to score in many, many different ways".

"If in 90 minutes you are thinking about 5-3, you kill yourself".

"Given the way we play tactically, he is a support striker who looks for space and tries to make the defense move out of position", Jardim said. "One thing is sure, for us to qualify in our current state, we'll need to score three goals".

During this time, backyard flock owners should refrain from moving birds offsite or introducing new birds. Other samples were collected at the TaCo-Bet Trade Day flea market in Jackson County on March 12.

Leonardo Jardim: "I am sure the two teams will respect their DNA because it is hard to change the mentality of a team before a game".

"City have had a hard time in Europe, which is new for this club, but previous year we did great in the Champions League".

Some managers would set their team to defend deep and play on the counter-attack but that is not the Guardiola way, and he can point to the 2009 and 2011 Champions League titles as proof that his methods work in Europe.

Willy Caballero meanwhile is expected to take over from Claudio Bravo between the sticks for what could be another goal fest. "We'll wait until tomorrow to see if he's fit enough to start". It is not easy to have faith when you are 4-0 down against PSG.

The former France coach, who is now an adviser to Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas, believes that only inexperience prevented Monaco from obtaining better result in the first leg. I saw the game against Bordeaux which was one or two chances [which Monaco won 2-1 on Saturday].

The afternoon high is expected to be around 33 degrees with windchill factors between 15 and 20, the forecast says. Strong winds and heavy snow are forecast to hit NY state and New England on Monday and Tuesday, the NWS said .

John Stones and Leroy Sane sealed the first-leg win for Pep Guardiola's side on a insane night in late February to set up an exciting second leg. We had a really hard group last year and then we had to play PSG and Real Madrid, but I don't think this year has been any easier.

"At that level everyone can beat you and you can beat them but I want to see my team with feeling that it wants to win the game". I am pretty sure of that.

Manchester City can seal their place in the last eight of the Champions League if they can finish off Monaco in the round of 16.

"I don't know. I would like to think about it, to say 'yes.' I'm so comfortable here".

"I have done it all my career that way".
