Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has claimed their Champions League clash with Club Brugge is “much more important” than Saturday’s Premier League trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United.
City is currently second in Group A, behind Paris Saint-Germain.
Guardiola’s men can take a giant step towards qualification for the knock-out rounds with victory over the Belgian side at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.
The clash comes three days before facing the Red Devils but Guardiola said the stakes will be higher against Brugge.
“This game is much more important than the United game.
“It would be an incredible step forward to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League.
“In the Premier League there are many games, here just six, now three left. Not much and they are decisive, the third and fourth games. These are the most important games and we need to take it seriously.
“Tomorrow we have a chance, every year is more difficult. It’s just six games, lose more than one or two it’s difficult and we already lost in Paris,” Guardiola told a news conference on Tuesday.
