Aymeric Laporte cautiously optimistic over Man City’s Champions League chances

Aymeric Laporte believes Manchester City can mount another serious assault on the summit of club football this season.

But the Frenchman reckons Pep Guardiola 's men will have to be more consistent if they are to scale the unprecedented heights of winning the Champions League.

Guardiola's men have made a strong start to this season's European campaign with back-to-back wins in Group C.

City followed up last week's 3-1 triumph over FC Porto with another convincing win at Marseille on Tuesday night in a bid to reach the knockout stages with games to spare.

But City have been here before after flattering to deceive in previous years and crashing out in the latter stages to leave their quest to conquer Europe unfulfilled.

Laporte insists City are on the right path once again – but knows it would be foolish to get too carried away at this stage.

The defender said: "We are very pleased with the result. We needed it as we are still not at 100 percent yet. It's good to win the second Champions League game and also get a clean-sheet.

"It was a really good night for us. It's a good result, but we need to continue building momentum. We need to win one match after the other.

"Over the last three years, we have done great things and we know the season is not about one match or one result, it's about building regularity. It's a long season, there are lots of matches to play but we are on the right path.

"It's always important to win away from home, especially in the first game away in the group stages.

"For us, it's one step closer to achieving our goal to qualify for the Round of 16. We are in a good situation now after the two wins and we hope we can certify our qualification as soon as possible."
