Man City v Basel: 5 things we learned

Champions League Manchester City ‘forget to attack’ as Basel pull off stunning win at Etihad Jason Cairnduff Reuters

City won the first leg 4-0 and therefore fielded a weakened team, hence Jesus' selection over the rested Aguero.

This was Guardiola's first trophy in England, and with the Premier League pretty much sewn up (Man City have a 16-point lead at the top of the table with nine games left), he's on course for a domestic double.

"Even the first half was quite good, in the second half we forgot to attack, we forgot to play". "He felt he needed rhythm - when you are out for a long time, you need rhythm to come back and for his confidence it will be good".

The former Barcelona coach, however, had less positive words for the rest of his team, labelling their second-half performance as "really, really poor" and said their possession play had been largely pointless. We created a lot of chances in the first half, but after 1-1 in the second half, the best way is to create the passes in the build-up to run in behind.

"We were lucky last season to win there".

Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala scored twice inside three minutes as Juventus stunned Tottenham with a second-half fightback to reach the Champions League quarterfinals with a 2-1 victory. "I just prefer to play at the weekend, when all the other teams are playing. We just passed for ourselves and that is not football".

"I am very proud and happy with the team, in hard circumstances they produced a really good performance", he told reporters.

Guardiola's men have swatted aside literally everyone enroute to what nearly certainly seems like a Premier League title and with the Carabao Cup already wrapped up, the Sky Blues are also looking to extend their domestic dominance on the continent.

Guardiola did not want to predict how far his team might be able to go in the competition.

"I think now he is going to understand... the comments were because he did not understand the reality".

Despite losing for just the fourth time all season, the runaway Premier League leaders still cruised through 5-2 on aggregate after doing the hard work in Switzerland three weeks ago.
