Manuel Pellegrini: Final game with Roma could decide group


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says it's not too late to qualify from Group E of the Champions League.

The Citizens are seven points from unbeaten leaders Bayern Munich and will be desperate to take all three points when they host CSKA Moscow on Wednesday night.

"There are teams that qualify with few points and then after that they won the Champions League," said Pellegrini.

"Of course our target is always to try and win the Champions League. We must put in our mind that we are able to do it, that we have a good squad.

"Maybe there are also five or six squads better than our squad or the same level as our squad that also want to do it but with a winning mentality and an ambitious mind, you must always think you can do it. I think we have time to prove it.

"We have to play three games more. This year, all the games we had to play against big teams, we didn't lose in one of them. We drew with Chelsea and Arsenal in the league, we beat Tottenham and Manchester United.

"We have to finish the qualifying [stage] and then we can make all the conclusions and analyse what happened with this team in Champions League.

"Last year we were the club that qualified with the biggest amount of points every time with 15 points. What happened this year in the three games of the Champions League, we have time to arrange it and I am sure we are going to arrange it.

"It is impossible to be sure but I think this group will be decided in the last game in Italy against Roma.

"We will see what happens, we are going to try to win our two games at home and see what the other teams do but I am sure this will be decided in the last game.

"I think it is a very important game but it is not a [sudden] death game because until mathematics can't fix it, you can continue.

"We must win this game because we have just two points and we have three games to play and it is very important to have more points. We will consider it not a final game but a very important game."
