Roberto Mancini describes Borussia Dortmund as "one of the best teams in Europe" and warns Manchester City against underestimating them.

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has warned his players that they will have to "do a very good job" against Borussia Dortmund to bag maximum points.

The Premier League champions will host their Bundesliga counterparts at the Etihad Stadium in their second Group D fixture on Wednesday.

"You can't win the Bundesliga without being a strong team and Dortmund have won the last two," said the Italian. "They have young players and a fantastic manager (Jurgen Klopp), so it's going to be a great game.

"They've been beating Bayern for the past two years and that's why I think they're one of best teams in Europe.

"With attacking players like [Marco] Reus, Robert [Lewandowski] and [Mario] Gotze, we'll need to do a very good job, restrict their space and avoid making life hard for ourselves."

City lost their opening game in the group 3-2 at Real Madrid last month.
