“What gives you consistency is how you perform and the way we are performing is really good," City manager Pep Guardiola said following the win over PSG at home.
“The people enjoy watching and hopefully we can sustain this for as long as possible. The players come back from injury and hopefully help us do it. They have a lot of quality, we tried to defend away from our goal because they can do anything. 
"Except for the five minutes after our goal when they counter-attacked but could not finish because Ruben defended really well, so I say congratulations to everyone at our club," he continued. 
“We are into the last 16 and will try our best in February to go to quarter-finals.”
Lepizig will host City for the first time in a competitive match.
