With a 3-0 win in the quarter-final first leg against FC Bayern, Manchester City have secured a very good starting position for the second leg. City coach Pep Guardiola was nevertheless keen to cool the euphoria on the Skyblues‘ side after the clear home victory.
FC Bayern is on the brink of elimination from the Champions League. The Munich team needs a „small football miracle“ to turn around the 3-0 defeat against ManCity. Pep Guardiola believes the Bavarians can do it: „I know that this Bayern team is special. We got a good result, but we need two strong games. Anything can happen at the Allianz Arena, I know that, I was at Bayern for three years,“ he stressed after his team’s win last night.
„They can score one, two, three goals quickly“.
Despite the 3-0 win, the Catalan still has a great deal of respect for Bayern and warns against taking the second leg in a week’s time too lightly: „Here in our stadium we are really good, we have our momentum, we develop our game. In Munich, it’s the same for Bayern in front of their fans. I’ve been there, know it. When they get into their game, they can also score one, two, three goals quickly.“
