I don't care whether or not we destroy them, I just want a win so, so bad. Every year I dream that we will finally win all 6 group games, and it looks like we can do it at last.

Found the answer myself.

Five clubs have won all their games in a group stage:

Milan, 1992–93
Paris Saint-Germain, 1994–95
Spartak Moscow, 1995–96
Barcelona, 2002–03 (First group stage)
Real Madrid, 2011–12

Well, we actually have to go for the win as first placed isn't secured just yet. Plus, Pep is all for breaking records and stuff.

City need to score at least 3 to finish ahead of us.

Did anyone else watch the City-Spurs game? I saw it and some points sprang to mind:

1.) Their attack was fearsome (obviously), but it was helped by some very sloppy defending from Spurs. Spurs just gave the ball away for the first goal (although Aguero's finish was superb).
2.) Quite frankly I have no idea how City kept a clean sheet. Spurs should have scored within the first quarter of an hour (in particular, they missed a wonderful chance to equalise). We were also being a bit profligate at the start of the season, but the second leg against CSKA convinced me that we can be very clinical when we want to.
3.) City's formation was 4-1-3-2 with Negredo and Aguero as strikers. If they play like that against us we should easily control the midfield again and cut off their strikers.

Really this will probably be similar to 2011. If we lose, it'll be because we sent out a team full of reserves. Guardiola doesn't seem to like that idea as much as Heynckes did though.

Manchester City defender Matija Nastasic is facing a three-week lay-off with a calf injury, manager Manuel Pellegrini has revealed.

The Serbia international missed the midweek Champions League clash against Viktoria Plzen after being withdrawn at half-time during last weekend's 6-0 Barclays Premier League thrashing of Tottenham.

On the positive side, captain and centre-back Vincent Kompany has recovered from a thigh problem but is not deemed sufficiently match-fit for Sunday's clash with Swansea.

Two other injury victims, David Silva and Stevan Jovetic, are pencilled in to face Bayern Munich on December 10 while midfielder Jack Rodwell has overcome his latest niggle.

Pellegrini said: "Vincent Kompany is fit and he is not ready to play on Sunday but I think next week he will be without any problems.

"Jovetic and Silva - I think they will play against Bayern Munich.

"Nastasic needs more time to recover - I think three weeks more.

"Rodwell is fit and can play this Sunday."

Pellegrini, speaking at his latest pre-match press conference, would not confirm whether Costel Pantilimon or Joe Hart would start in goal.

Long-time number one Hart returned in midweek after being left out for the five previous fixtures, with Romanian Pantilimon taking his place.

With Hart central to England's World Cup plans, the issue continues to command much attention and Pellegrini attempted to head off anticipated questions by speaking on the subject unprompted.

He said: "Joe Hart, I think he played very, very well the other day.

"He had a good performance. We trust a lot in him and we will see who will start on Sunday."

Hart was dropped by Pellegrini earlier this month after a series of errors.

He was faultless on his return against Plzen and made a couple of good saves in the second half.

Pellegrini added: "All the players give me a lot of things to think about and that is my job.

"When they give good performances, it is very easy. Not difficult, easy." [source]

Manchester City face Arsenal at home in the next match they play after Bayern. The importance of that league game can hardly be overestimated.

They are qualified for the next round of the Champions League. To top the group they need to give 110%, run and run and run, and achieve the unheard-of result of beating Bayern by three goals in Munich.

Is it worth the effort and risk?
