Pep Guardiola has urged Manchester City fans not to boo the Champions League anthem tonight and help their team finally conquer Europe.

Fans continue to jeer the pre-match anthem, despite City winning its appeal against a two-year UEFA ban for alleged financial fair play breaches. Guardiola called on fans inside the Ataturk Stadium to embrace the anthem and forget their anger towards UEFA, as the Blues aim for an historic Treble.

"It's a day to celebrate," said Guardiola. "What's happened in the pas is in the past and its an incredible competition. We're here to support what UEFA is doing and we're not going to boo any more. So support the team, support the game and try to have fun."

Guardiola, whose side lost to Chelsea in the final two years ago, is convinced his players are ready to finally lift the iconic trophy and write their names in history. "I have a feeling we are ready," said Guardiola. "The players will give everything, knowing the opponent, so yeah - just go for it."
