Manchester City fullback Douglas Maicon insists there's no reason for Champions League panic after defeat at Real Madrid.

City face Borussia Dortmund tonight.

"We can still win the group but you can't think like that in the Uefa Champions League, we have to take each match as it comes and not think about first, second or third," said the full-back to City' website.

"All the group matches are very delicate, especially considering we didn't get anything in Madrid - it makes the second match against Dortmund very difficult."
