Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini will be cheering on title rivals Manchester United in the Champions League this season in the hope that their Premier League form suffers, according to the Guardian.

United take on Real Madrid in Europe's elite club competition later this month and Mancini, whose side sit ten points behind the league leaders at the moment, is keen that Sir Alex Ferguson's men are distracted from their domestic duties to give City the chance to catch up.

Ahead of Manchester City's fixture against Liverpool on Sunday, Mancini joked that he may even watch the Real Madrid match "with a little red and white flag".

Mancini continued: "I don't know if we can make up the gap on United but I do think they will find it a little bit harder in February and March and that is when the title might be decided. When you have 14 games left you still have a chance, because it is a long season and anything can still happen.

"When we played Real Madrid it took a lot out of us and I think United are going to find it difficult as well, because along with Barcelona [Real] are the best in the world right now.
