Samir Nasri on the Barcelona game, says it's not about revenge


Midfielder Samir Nasri has stressed that Manchester City are keen to make history and add the Champions League to their trophy cabinet.

Having reduced the gap from leaders Chelsea to only five points in the Premier League, the Citizens host Barcelona in today's Champions League action.

It is one of the most anticipated matches of the Last 16 and the 27-year-old expects the fans to play their part tonight.

"We have had a lot of success in the Premier League so fans are really passionate," Nasri said during Monday's press conference.

"In the Champions League we need to create our history to have this special relationship with the fans.

"And I think a game like Barcelona can be a big victory between us and the fans in the competition."

The Spanish giants were superior in last year's competition but the Frenchman says the Citizens may have the last laugh this time round.

"We respected them too much last year, we were not experienced enough to compete with a club like this, they know how to win the Champions League," he said.

"It was too much of a big game for us but now we are not going to be scared.

"We want to beat Barcelona because we want to go as far as possible not because of revenge. It is a different game and we are better physically than last year.

"[Lionel] Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, they play on a different galaxy, the rest, [Luis] Suarez and Neymar are the same level as Sergio [Aguero]."
