Champions League draw: 'Barcelona or Real Madrid will not want to face Manchester City,' says Samir Nasri

Monday 16 December 2013
By finishing second in Group D, Manchester City will be tasked with either Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid, or Paris Saint-Germain in today's Champions League Last 16 draw, but, like his manager Manuel Pellegrini, Samir Nasri is not too worried about facing one of Europe’s top sides in the next round.
“I’m not worried who we get in the Champions League. I don’t think they Real Madrid or Barcelona will be happy to play Manchester City,” he said.
“But if I had to pick the draw, of course I would go for Paris Saint-Germain, Atletico Madrid or Borussia Dortmund.”
Nasri was full of confidence after City's 6-3 thrashing of his former team, league leaders Arsenal on Saturday.
“We had so many chances to score more – I think they know we’re a real threat for any team who come to the Etihad and for the title.
“We are going to try and break those records. But when we go on the pitch we don’t have this obsession about scoring five, six or seven goals. We just try to do our job and win.
“But we have so much attacking ability that when we have chances, we score.”
