Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has shared his opinion after the results of the Champions League quarter-finals first leg against Borussia Dortmund. Guardiola is not satisfied with the 2-1 win over the Bundesliga club.
Phil Foden scored a late striker to give Manchester City a first-leg win in the Champions League.
Pep believes the Champions League pressure had an impact on Man City to win over Dortmund. “When you win 26 games in 27 and they are not winning the Bundesliga, the pressure is on our shoulders,” he said according to Sky Sports.
“Everything is guaranteed for us. Everybody believed we would win. We had an incredible commitment and desire to go through.”
“We will go there to win the game. I ask the players to win the game. We did it and now we go to Dortmund not to defend.”
“We will adjust our pressing, adjust our build-up and play 90 minutes to try and reach the semi-final.”
“[Foden] was a threat in the second half. He was a real threat, arriving in the final third. He had two, three chances and finally scored.”
“First half we were not clever with the ball, our pass was not better for the mate.
“Second half was much better, two or three clear chances to score the second or third, unfortunately, didn’t happen, but after conceding 1-1 we were there and we score the final goal.”
“The opponents are strong, the quality, the pace, the quality upfront that they have, it is always difficult to do what we want to do.
“It’s a good result, 2-1 and we have another chance next week.”
