Pep Guardiola (Manchester City) after the victory against Atlético de Madrid: “We did not attack at the right pace”

Pep Guardiola (Manchester City coach, 1-0 winner of Atlético de Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals) : “It was a difficult match against a strong opponent, who played 5-5-0. It was difficult to find spaces. We were patient, but we didn’t attack at the right pace. Fortunately, we scored. It’s a good result, we could have scored a second goal, but 1-0 or 2-0 doesn’t change much before going to Madrid. »

“I don’t know what to expect from the Colchoneros when they return…”

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

“Phil Foden? He has special qualities, always taking the ball forward, incredible first downs. We knew we would need him and Gabriel Jesus to pick up speed when the game got a little slow. They did and they were very good. I don’t know what to expect from the Colchoneros on the way back. They may be a little higher, combine more. But if the start of the game turns in their favor, maybe they will return to their low game. Above all, I have to think about what we can do to attack better. »
