Pep Guardiola confident Man City will avoid a two-season ban from European

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has "a lot of confidence" his club will avoid a two-season ban from European competitions when the verdict of their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) is revealed later this month.

City was banned from UEFA competitions for two years by the European governing body in February after being found guilty of overstating sponsorship outcome to avoid breaches of Financial Fair Play regulations.

Their case was heard by CAS last month and the club has always been bullish about the potential outcome.

"We are ready. I have a lot of confidence and trust with the people that we will be allowed to play the Champions League because we want to be on the field during these years," said Guardiola.

"On July 13 we will know the resolution, hopefully, for the club — all the workers, players and everyone here, staff — to try to continue growing up as a club in the next years."

Amid the off-field issues, City remains one of the favourites to win this season's Champions League, which is now due to resume in August.

City holds a 2-1 lead over Real Madrid after the first leg of their round of 16 tie.
