Kevin De Bruyne reckons Manchester City will be failures if they don't beat Chelsea to win the Champions League.
Pep Guardiola's men meet their English rivals in Porto tonight to do battle for the biggest prize in club football.
City are on a mission to sink Thomas Tuchel's side and become kings of Europe for the first time in their history.
After winning the Premier League and Carabao Cup already this season, City can secure another treble haul of trophies.
But De Bruyne believes his side will look like flops if they don't go on to land the biggest trophy of the lot.
The Belgium superstar said: "We're all competitors and we all want to win. We as players understand the magnitude of the game tonight.
“If you win you're a hero – and if you lose you're almost a failure, even if you're not a failure because getting to this stage is incredibly well done by the team and an individual.
"But if you don't win it, yeah, it will be something you don't really want to experience – but it happens."
City have been aiming for this moment ever since Sheikh Mansour bought the club in 2008.
Losing is not an option and De Bruyne has told his team-mates to rise to the occasion and seize the chance to make history.
The midfield ace added: "It's been one of the goals of the club and one of the goals of the players to be able to be there in this game – and to perform on the highest stage in the world is something of a privilege.
"I think everybody understands the pressure that it brings, but at least we can enjoy this game.
"We should take it with a smile and take it as something where you want to perform and show your best."
