Monaco and Man City set for second leg thriller

Monaco and Man City set for second leg thriller

The Citizens are set to lock horns with Arsenal in the semi-finals in April as they bid to lift the trophy for the first time since 2011.

City's fragile defence has been a problem the whole season, and one that has cost them any chance of winning the league, but Guardiola pinpointed another reason for losing to Monaco.

"The second half didn't reflect the whole scoreline".

City saw exactly why in the first leg, as the visitors thrilled for the first hour of the contest. At this crucial time. It's not about the defence and the goalkeeper.

Monaco have been a formidable attacking unit this season, scoring 84 goals in 29 Ligue 1 games, and carved City open in the first leg before capitulating late on.

Man City, who had no shot attempt in the first half, were on the brink of elimination with no away goal after Fabinho successfully brought it to an aggregate of 5-5, compared to their Monaco counterparts' tally of three.

"They are a strong side and we have already faced them, but any team we get drawn with in Nyon will be a tough matchup". "That is my feeling now". "He wanted to play an attacking blend of football but today they fell by that". "It would be tiring for us to think about running the clock down, that would be a huge mistake, to think about what we have done [already]", he said. They've not been convincing at the back at all.

"The gap between our first and second half performances was too big".

"All managers make mistakes". In the Champions League, one mistake in a game can be fatal. "I think that playing against English teams seems suits us well. The club has full confidence in me, the staff and my team mates make me feel important", said Falcao, who scored two but missed a potentially decisive penalty in Monaco's 5-3 defeat in the first leg in Manchester.

"We know that City likes to play with a high defensive line".

"We have two months until the end of the season so I hope we are going to finish in the best way possible in the Premier League and FA Cup", Kolarov told City's official website.

The Blues went two goals down in a woeful first half, but Leroy Sane clawed one back in the 71st minute that would have seen them win on aggregate. We were a little slow in everything we did in the first half, that's why playing against Europe's top teams is hard.

Asked to assess where the match had been lost, Guardiola said: "It's simple".
