Rudi Garcia ahead of the City game, gives De Sanctis injury update


Roma coach Rudi Garcia says his players have nothing to lose when they face Manchester City this evening.

The Giallorossi were in devastating form at home against CSKA Moscow and they will be eager to keep their unbeaten run going against Manuel Pellegrini's side.

"We already have three points, we started well and these points allow us to play without any additional pressure," Garcia said ahead of tonight's game.

"When the draw was made many said we would lose this match so we have nothing to lose.

"Let's not forget we were not in the third pot but in the fourth one. This means we are underdogs since we're together with the reigning champions of England and Germany.

"Morgan [De Sanctis] has a muscular problem, he's not 100% fit, we will decide during our training session."

Garcia knows that a win would boost Roma's chances to move on to the next round but he insists it would not mean the end for Manchester City.

"No, the group cannot be decided tomorrow, it's only the second game," added the Frenchman.

"As I said earlier we have three points and if tomorrow we manage to add more then it would mean an important step ahead of the next round of the competition, but nothing will be decided.
