Champions League: Manchester City 'forgot to play' against Monaco - Bacary Sagna

Champions League: Manchester City 'forgot to play' against Monaco - Bacary Sagna

After that, at this level everyone can beat you, but I don't like my team to speculate.

"What I want is tomorrow to make a good game".

Manchester City's players will regret the opportunities they have squandered in the Champions League in the past two seasons. If we're in this position, it's not down to luck. It will help us a lot in the future and learn from that. It's magnifcent what we have done today, we're really proud. Real Madrid scored from two last week and went through.

Manchester City eventually found a way through with 19 minutes to go, as Subasic only fingertipped away a Raheem Sterling effort and Leroy Sane was ready to turn in the rebound.

But first half goals from young forward Kylian Mbappe as well as Fabinho set the French side on their way to the quarter-final stage.

There's no shame in losing to Monaco, an exciting young team who will cause trouble to any of their potential opponents in the quarter-finals. We put in 45 minutes of great quality, we could have led 3-0.

Manchester City's first genuine chance was in the second half, but Andrea Raggi made a decisive block on Sergio Aguero.

They were criticized for being too timid against Real Madrid last season with a place in the Champions League final on the line, and this year they have lost to Chelsea, Liverpool, Spurs, and now Monaco. "It is never easy to take but we have to, unfortunately".

Celtic 1-1 Rangers: We were denied clear penalty - Brendan Rodgers
Rangers striker Martyn Waghorn squandered a brilliant chance to open the scoring but was denied by a fine save from Hoops goalkeeper Craig Gordon before Stuart Armstrong put the league leaders in front after 35 minutes with a fine left-footed strike.

"We have to congratulate them, they are through". We camped out in their half of the pitch. If they do so again, they're capable of scoring two or three quick goals unanswered. They certainly didn't expect that. "I don't know another way".

Bernardo Silva (Monaco midfielder): "At 2-1, we didn't falter".

Centre half John Stones called his team's performance "very sloppy" and accepted that the players had let Guardiola down.

"The best way (to defend) is score goals, attack as much as possible", Guardiola told reporters in Monaco on Tuesday.

"So the message is to finish strong, we have to do it for ourselves, the manager and the fans". There are only fantastic teams left.

We can easily say that he is the man of the match.

City clearly did not get that memo and thanks to their first half showing, it is now just about domestic football for them for the rest of the season. "I'm more afraid when we take on smaller clubs and we're favourites", he said. Why was the second half a problem with the defence? "Our strength is to be aggressive without the ball".
