Man City Look To Send Out A Message To The Rest Of Europe

The new Man City era continues tonight as they set to play Napoli tonight in the first round of the Champions League.  Man City and Roberto Mancini look to send out a message to all European clubs tonight and show that they aren't in the tournament to make up the numbers. 

I'm sure all City fans are raring to see their beloved club play in the best club tournament that football has to offer. It's hard to think that just ten years ago Man City were playing their football in the old Division 1, now known as the Championship. 

Man City have already been hugely impressive with many already backing them to pip United at the finishing line and win the Premier League. As long as Silva stays fit and Aguero and Dezko keep banging in the goals, there is no reason why City can't count themselves as very serious contenders.

Although many might consider Man City's group a tough one, I think the draw has been kind to Roberto Mancini's men and I wouldn't be 100% surprised to see them come out on top . Tonights opponents, Napoli, although relatively quiet on the European stage, will prove to be sturdy opposition as they got off to a winning start at the weekend in the opening weekend of the Serie A.

I think we can expect a City win tonight but that's not to say that we should rule a Napoli victory out completely but I just think Man City will have just too much flair in the likes of Aguero and the simply magnificent Silva. 

But what do you think? How will City not only fare in tonight's game but in the campaign as a whole?

I would love to hear any comments you may have.
