City take a 5-3 lead into Wednesday's match at the Stade Louis II after winning a thrilling first leg last month, and many teams would be tempted to defend such an advantage in the return.French league leaders Monaco have scored 123 goals in all competitions this season while City have looked defensively fragile throughout much of the campaign. Guardiola added: "Of course we start game not with 0-0, but with 5-3 . Sergio Aguero scored twice while Raheem Sterling, John Stones and Leroy Sane were all on target for City in a remarkable meeting at the Etihad Stadium, in which Monaco had led 2-1 and 3-2 before collapsing late on.Monaco top scorer Falcao has not fully recovered from a hip injury and is doubtful for Wednesday's game.Falcao has scored 24 goals this season, although none since the City game three weeks ago, where he also missed a penalty.Jardim expects City to score, given its attacking strength and attack-minded focus.
