Guardiola certainly hopes Liverpool lose. Even so, he knows very well Jurgen Klopp and his squad are in good momentum.

“We have to feel this pressure and deal with it. We’ve done it before.”

Must win to be champion

“We’ve won 14 games in a row, now we have to win eight games. Otherwise, we won’t be champions,” continued Guardiola.

“It is a dream to be able to play in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. After that [vs Atletico Madrid] we will prepare to face Liverpool,” he said.
