Guardiola: Man City must be "almost perfect" to advance

"We are 3-0 up in a massive game, our fans are going to be ready and it is a great place to play".

Liverpool have beaten the league leaders on two occasions this season, and Van Dijk believes there is a sense of vulnerability within Pep Guardiola's team.

"We don't want to go there and think maybe we can lose 1-0 and we are still through".

"I know we want to judge the result but the performances?"

But the last time they led a European match by three goals at half-time was November's group tie against Sevilla when they conceded three in a insane 45 minutes to draw.

"What we have done this season is unbelievable and we have a chance to go through in the Champions League".

"A club like Liverpool should always be in the quarter-finals, semi-finals of the Champions League and competing with the best clubs in the world".

Roma will see the return of midfielder Radja Naibggolan and forward Cengiz Under, both injured for the first leg against Barcelona, but winger Diego Perotti is still sidelined with a calf problem. "We have to play our game". We don't know what those two games have taken out of them mentally - or what sort of reaction they will bring.

Liverpool "can beat anyone", says John Arne Riise, with Jurgen Klopp's side capable of winning the Champions League in 2018.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, you name it - they could turn up there, have a bad day and get pumped 3-0.

Liverpool, with five ears, hopes to reach the continental quarter for the first time since losing to Chelsea in 2008, which they lost in the penalty shootout in the semi-finals.

The Egyptian wide man has been a crucial part of the side this season, but left the field early in the first leg against City.

Usually, when they go a goal or two up, they can just dictate the game, set the tempo and get their players on the ball. But when you play against Liverpool or in Europe, when you have that momentum, you have to close the door.

"We can not forget it is a simple game - just focus on every single minute".

Guardiola feels failure to overturn the deficit would provide a valuable lesson for his team in the long term and acknowledged City have to attack from the off if they are to progress.
