It is our sixth game in a row away. it is a lot of travel and we are tired in many aspects and that's why we travel there, we play tomorrow at 12.30 pm - we have no extra time to recover from Paris. We have to focus on what we can do to pick up an important victory to be closer than ever to being champions after playing for 10 months," Guardiola said, reported Goal.
