Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has shut out thoughts of a possible Europa League final derby showdown with rivals Manchester United.

The two Manchester clubs, eliminated from the Champions League in December, are both on course to reach the last 16 of Europe's second-tier competition this week. City are the first in action as they look to protect a 2-1 lead over Porto at the Etihad Stadium tonight while United, 2-0 ahead, face Ajax at Old Trafford tomorrow.

Having been kept apart in the quarter-final draw, the possibility remains they could meet in the final in Bucharest in May, but Nasri said: "It would be a good derby in the final but we are not there. We have the game against Porto first and then after we will see."
