“Unfortunately for Vincent Kompany, he has a calf problem again in his muscle so we will see how it is tomorrow. Nicolas Otamendi has had a kick and hopefully can recover in the next couple of days.
“It is difficult for Kompany because he came back very well, he played six games in-a-row but unfortunately for him he couldn’t continue.”
Pellegrini believes it was vital for City to make the quarter-finals for the first time after being knocked out by Barcelona in the last two season.
He added: “It is a very important achievement for the club. Before we could not do it, we were very unlucky. It is not normal to play against Barcelona twice in the last-16. This is a club that is growing and continue to develop as a big club.
