Premier League leaders Manchester City travel to the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán to take on Spanish side Sevilla in their fourth Group D encounter of the season on Tuesday night.

City are currently second in the group, and trail leaders Juventus by a point. Sevilla meanwhile remain third with three points seperating them from the English side.

The Citizens are on a flying form in the Premier League as they have been undefeated in their last four games, and they also have a chance to qualify for the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League tonight itself if they manage to garner all the three points.

And Manuel Pellegrini's side would also be hoping that Juventus beat Borussia Monchengladbach in the other fixture from the group tonight to achieve the same.

"I think it's very important for the team to try to win because, depending on what happens in the other game, we could be in the next stage," Pellegrini was quoted as saying by the BBC ahead of the game.

"If we have a good result [against Sevilla], we must then try to win the group in our remaining two games. This team is not prepared to try to draw - we won't start the game thinking it's a good point," the Chilean added.

For Sevilla, it doesn't look easy at all on-paper, but football games are definitely not won on-paper. And the coach of the Spanish side Unai Emery looks for nothing but a win tonight.

"Manchester City are top of the Premier League and are going to demand a lot of us. Our only option is a win if we are to get through to the next phase," the Spanish coach said.

"We did well in Manchester but lost," Emery referred to the 2-1 victory by Man City over them in their first leg clash last month.

"We have to improve those aspects of the game that prevented us winning there. It will be very difficult – Juventus and Manchester City are in with a chance of getting to the final and winning it," he added.

Sevilla are currently 13th in the Spanish league.
