Lyon striker Karl Toko Ekambi: All the pressure on Man City

Lyon striker Karl Toko Ekambi insists they'll face Manchester City full of confidence on Saturday in Lisbon.

Lyon meet City in the Champions League quarterfinal fresh from upsetting Juventus.

Ekambi said: “The group is living well. We must be a collective. It is important and we have realised it. We have to be the team that wants it the most. City are a big team with a big attack.

"We are in the 8 best teams. Everything is possible in this match. We probably have less pressure than them. We want to qualify and we will do everything to qualify. We have very good players. We must remain united."

He added: “I watch all the championships. City are one of the best teams in England. We will have to fight on all points, offensively and defensively. We will have to get into this match.

"We managed to do things well in Turin and I'm sure we'll be able to do it again on Saturday."
