Man City boss Mancini shocked by early kickoff today
He said: "It's incredible we play Wednesday and then Saturday at 12.45.
"We have two days and 12 hours to recover because we lost a lot of energy against Dortmund.
"Everywhere else the teams that play in the Champions League play three or four days before the game and have three days minimum after.
"But here it is strange. I will need to have four or five fresh players."
