Champions League: Man City must win group - Vincent Kompany

Captain Vincent Kompany said it was "important" for Manchester City to win their Champions League group after they secured a place in the knockout stages.

City reached the last 16, where they have lost to Barcelona for the past two years, with a 3-1 win at Sevilla.

Winning Group D would mean they face the runners-up from another pool.

"It's an incredible achievement to have qualified with two games still to go," said Kompany. "Now we go on - we need to make sure we end as group winners."

Raheem Sterling, Fernandinho and Wilfried Bony scored as City won a third successive Champions League match.

Victory for the Premier League leaders, coupled with Juventus's 1-1 draw at Borussia Monchengladbach in the group's other game, means they have reached the knockout stage in record time.

Manuel Pellegrini's side qualified for the last 16 after five games in 2013-14, then by beating Roma in their final group game last season.

Finishing as runners-up in their group saw them drawn against Spanish giants Barca.

But City are guaranteed to win their group this season if they beat Italian champions Juve and German side Monchengladbach in their final two matches.

"It's important for us to finish first in our group because we've been unlucky with draws before," said Kompany.
