Pep Guardiola thinks their finish has to change as Manchester City was dominant throughout a 2-0 victory over Borussia Monchengladbach.
Manchester City must be sharper in front of the goal if they are to end their search for Champions League glory, insists Pep Guardiola.
With Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus on either side of their half-time goal, City won 2-0 in the first leg of their last-16 tie against Borussia Monchengladbach in Budapest.
The City boss warned his players after the match to talk to BT Sport not to replicate the errors of botched opportunities that have tainted three straight quarter-final exits.
“In general, it was good,” he said. “We controlled the game, we concede one chance at the end.”
“Unfortunately, we were not clinical enough up front – one against one, against the defender and keeper.”
“It’s something we have to improve in this competition.”
“The situation is clear – the one against the keeper or against the defenders and we were not able to even dribble.”
“In this competition, you have to be perfect to make sure you go through.”
