Manchester City will be aiming to bounce back from their opening Champions League defeat when they travel to play Hoffenheim on Tuesday. Pep Guardiola's side suffered an opening-week defeat to Lyon, which has increased the pressure for this encounter in Germany. City, who strolled past Brighton 2-0 on Saturday, are unbeaten in their last five Champions League games against German opponents (W4 D1) since a 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in 2014 when Guardiola was in charge of the Bundesliga side. Guardiola admits the pressure is on his side to deliver in this competition. "In the Champions League we don't have time to lose a lot of games and we lost the first one," Guardiola said. "We have five finals and tomorrow is the first one." Winning the Champions League is a long-term ambition of the club but they fell to Liverpool at the quarter-final stage last season and captain Vincent Kompany expects the competition to prove just as difficult this term. Kompany said: "I'd love to win a European trophy with City but it's such a tough competition to win. Across Europe there are about eight teams with just as much of a claim. "We've got to deal with the fact we lost to Lyon. We'll worry about Hoffenheim first and if we get momentum anything is possible."
