Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, is hoping that his former club, Bayern Munich will beat Liverpool and join them in the Champions League quarter-finals.
The Premier League champions are through to the last eight, after hammering Schalke 7-0 on Tuesday, to qualify with a 10-2 aggregate.
City’s progression means there will be at least three English teams in the quarter-final of a Champions League campaign, for the first time since 2010/11.
Liverpool will look to make that four by navigating Wednesday’s last-16 second leg at the Allianz Arena, but Guardiola hopes City’s title rivals stumble at his old club.
“I’m sorry for the English people but I want Bayern to go through.
“I am part of this club. I love Munich. I love Bayern. I have a lot of friends there,” Guardiola told Sky Sports.”
