Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola wants Bayern Munich to beat Liverpool in their Champions League round of 16 encounter on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, Concise News understands that City ruthlessly dispatched Bundesliga side 7-0 to end the tie 10-2 on aggregate.
However, Guardiola does not want local rivals Liverpool to go to the quarter-finals of the competition after the first leg ended barren.
“I am sorry for the English people, I want Bayern to go through,” the Spanish gaffer added.
“I am part of this club, I had an incredible three years. I love Munich and have a lot of friends there.
“It is a demanding game for both but I feel I like Bayern Munich and hopefully they can go through.”
He added: “In terms of what happened with Spanish teams and German teams, arriving many times in the finals, this season it is a surprise.
“Hopefully Barcelona tomorrow can go through [against Lyon] and reach the quarter-finals. For English football it is nice that there are three teams in the quarter finals and Liverpool maybe.”
