City can win Europa League: Mancini

Roberto Mancini has backed Manchester City to challenge for the Europa League title after securing top spot in Group A on Thursday.

Playing away at Serie A side Juventus, City fell behind to a Niccolo Giannetti goal two minutes before half-time at the Stadio Olimpico, but Jo's equaliser in the 77th minute ensured City will be amongst the seeds for the round of 32.

With a favourable outcome in Friday's draw, Mancini believes his side have what it takes to win the competition.

"I am very happy, because we wanted this, and it was very important to finish top of the group," Mancini said.

"We have a chance to go all the way, but it is important to have a good draw for the next round, and after that we will see."
