Sarah Winterburn for Football 365:
Do City deserve to advance on the strength of their performances in Europe this season? Not at all.
Have they contrived to shoot themselves in the feet several times through a combination of poor tactics, complacency and ill-discipline? Yes, yes and three times yes.
Are City’s 11 men better even than Bayern Munich’s ten? Emphatically not.
But does Sergio Aguero deserve to grace the group stages of the Champions League? Absolutely yes.
