Manuel Pellegrini: We have nine points more to play for


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says the Citizens can still qualify from Group E of the Champions League after the 2-2 draw against CSKA Moscow.

A late Bedras Natcho penalty leaves City lying third in the table on two points with Bayern Munich leading the group on nine points followed by Roma on four.

Pellegrini's men host the Russians on November 5 followed by do-or-die games against Bayern Munich and Roma.

"Why [should we be outsiders to qualify]?," Pellegrini told Sky Sports 5.

"We have nine points more to play for. After we have played for the remaining nine points, we will see.

"Football is 95 minutes, it's not just the first half.

"We played very well, we scored two goals and we had clear chances to score two or three more goals.

"But we didn't and we have to play 90 minutes with a team that is a good team. If you give them space, they are a dangerous team.

"We didn't have the pace and we didn't move the ball as we did in the first half - we didn't really have one chance to score, and finally they scored that penalty that the referee whistled for CSKA."
