Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers says that his players will have to be aware about the explosive talent within Sergio Aguero.
The Argentine forward has been one of the top goal scorers in Europe at the start of this campaign. He has already netted more than 10 goals in all competitions and will be the player to watch when Manchester City visit Celtic Park for the second Champions League group match. City also come into the game with a 100% record under Pep Guardiola since the start of the campaign. Aguero continued his fine form by scoring twice in the 3-1 win against Swansea during the weekend.
There is a very good possibility that Celtic could suffer a thrashing similar to the opening game against Barcelona. Rodgers and his team went with a lot of confidence into the game at the Camp Nou only to return with a 7-0 mauling. The Scottish club cannot afford to suffer a repeat especially since they are at home. Rodgers will be very focused on the aspect of defending. Unlike prior to the game against Barcelona, the former Liverpool boss was especially cautious with his approach to the game. Aguero has been in superb form and is already one of the favourites to win the European Golden Boot award if he continues on this vein of form.
“It is a difficult game of course.I have come across Aguero many times, I know his qualities and know the level he is at.His first goals in English football was against my team Swansea when he came on as substitute – and he actually cost more than our stadium at Swansea cost.He is a big talent, one of the leading strikers in the world but as a team they are operating at a really high level. They are world-class players working really hard,” said Rodgers.
