UCL: Why we lost 3-1 to Real Madrid – Guardiola
Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has reacted to their 3-1 defeat against Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday.
City travelled to Spain with a 4-3 advantage and even scored first through Riyad Mahrez.
But a quickfire double from Rodrygo and a Karim Benzema penalty, saw Madrid win 3-1 on the night and 6-5 on aggregate.
After the game, Guardiola was asked if history had an effect on their latest elimination from the competition.
He replied: “It’s about who scores the most goals. And they scored more.
“I had tough defeats in the Champions League, Barcelona against Chelsea. It is tough for us, I can’t deny. We were so close. We didn’t play much good in the first half. But it’s normal in this competition.”
