Mancini aims to feed on Europa League scraps
BERLIN (AFP) - Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini faces the embarrassing prospect of his mega-rich team missing out on even a Europa League consolation place after another miserable European campaign.
For the second season in succession, City have no chance of making the Champions League last 16 after a record of three draws and two defeats left them bottom of Group D in the continent's premier competition with just three points.
On Tuesday, they go to German champions Borussia Dortmund who, along with Real Madrid, have already qualified for the knockout rounds leaving City and Ajax to aim for a Europa League place instead.
City must beat Dortmund and hope that Jose Mourinho's Real can prevent Ajax from a victory if they want to keep their European ambitions alive.
