A disappointing outing as Manchester City could not maintain their form and fell to a clinical PSG. City would dominate most of the match and had leads in possession, shots on target, expected goals and more.
In the end it was not enough as PSG made their few chances and came out winners with a spectacular Leo Messi strike putting the nail in the match.
We’re on to Liverpool and the reaction-
Pep Guardiola Reaction
“I think we made a really good game, quite similar to Stamford Bridge,”
“Maybe we were a little less aggressive in our first actions for the quality of the players that we have, but in general it was a fantastic game. We did everything, I didn’t see the stats but I think we created enough chances to score.
“Donnarumma was fantastic. The quality of the players they have, we minimised for our game Neymar and Messi being in contact with the ball and did not let Mbappe run in behind but at the end 2-0, last ten minutes we were more desperate with less control.
“The quality they have everyone knows it, but I think we did a really good game with personality, but we should’ve scored goals and we didn’t do it and that’s why we lost the game.”
“We know it’s impossible to control Leo all 90 minutes. Of course, he came back from some injuries, which is why he needed a bit of rhythm but we know him quite well and when he can run and be close to the ball he’s unstoppable.
“The way we have done is minimise this as much as possible and create the chances that we could create. We arrived here and played our game.
“They defended deep with seven players, and it’s always the risk if you lose the ball and they can make one pass with Verratti who is an exceptional player and they make contact with Neymar or Messi and run it’s always difficult.”
Very frustrating night…take what went good, correct the bad and get ready for the next one! pic.twitter.com/WrMC1FkpN6— Rúben Dias (@rubendias) September 28, 2021
