Sergio Aguero is confident Manchester City can progress to the latter stages of the Champions League, regardless of who they may face in the knockout phase of the competition.
• Curtis: Where do we go from here?
Aguero, who earlier paid tribute to City manager Manuel Pellegrini, believes the club can break new ground in Europe this season after qualifying from Group D.
This progression follows two consecutive group-stage exits, and the striker insists he and his team-mates are now capable of accounting for some of the continent’s elite clubs.
"We've qualified from the group stages and hopefully we can go further," the striker told City's official website.
"I think we have an excellent squad to progress in the Champions League but we know that it will be difficult.
"We will just wait and see what team we play in the next round and do our best to progress."
Aguero has been in fine form this season, scoring 12 times in his last 10 games for City and is the joint top scorer in the Premier League.
