Manchester City forward Kevin De Bruyne is confident of a win over Paris Saint-Germain in the return leg of the UEFA Champions League.
The Belgian who just came back into the fold after a long injury lay-off played a huge role as the Citizens drew the first leg 2-2 and now believes there is no reason they can’t complete the job at Etihad Stadium and aim for the final.
“If we get a good result we’re already in the semi-final, just two games away from the finals,” De Bruyne told the Manchester Evening News.
“You never know where it ends, but the competition remains important.”
Manchester City are the only British team left in the competition and De Bruyne explains the reason why.
“The competition is very heavy in England,” he said.
“When you play against the team in 15th, it’s still a very difficult match.
“In other countries you can pick players from your B team to play against the team in 15th, and will still win 80 percent of the time.
“You cannot do that in England.”
The former Chelsea star who did not start the weekend game against West Brom gave an insight to why the manager rested him.
“The coach did not tell me why but I think it is normal that I got rested after such an injury,” he said.
“I was out for nine weeks and you cannot easily get over two matches.”
