‘Manchester City Are Out If We Do Not Score In Second Leg’- Pep Guardiola Says After Champions League Win

Manchester City “will be eliminated” if they do not score in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie with Monaco, says manager Pep Guardiola.

City, who came from behind twice to beat the French league leaders 5-3 in a pulsating first leg at the Etihad Stadium, play the return on 15 March.

“We are going to fly to Monaco to score as many goals as possible,” Guardiola said afterwards.

“That is my target. It is impossible to progress if we don’t score a goal.”

Monaco led 2-1 and 3-2 before City fought back to clinch a thrilling victory in the highest-scoring first leg of a knock-out tie in the 25-year-history of the Champions League.
