Monaco v Manchester City: Champions League last 16, second leg

That can only be a good thing ahead of the second leg of their last-16 Champions League tie against Monaco on BT Sport 2 tonight.

Guardiola's feted coaching credentials again came under the microscope after City fell to a 3-1 defeat at Monaco on Wednesday, dumping them out of the Champions League on away goals.

Atletico, last season's beaten finalists at the hands of fierce local rival Real Madrid, ran out 4-2 winners over Leverkusen in Germany, also giving them a two-goal advantage but with the potentially crucial benefit of multiple away goals when the Bundesliga team visit the Vicente Calderon. "We will find out when we go back in after training", he said.

I don't think Iheanacho even had a touch in his limited time on the pitch.

Monaco three times allowed a lead to slip in that match, but the Brazilian told Globo Esporte that they will be just as enterprising in France on Wednesday, "This is our style of play, it brought us to this phase of the competition and put us top of the French Championship". I still can't explain it nearly 24 hours on.

"They believed it and played really well".

"(It was) Not up to our standard in the first half.

"There nearly seemed no belief in that semi-final".

"Of course, he prefers to win the Champions League. That's why we are out", Guardiola said.

"I'm a bit down about it".

"You can take some examples, yes, but we have a different way of playing compared to Barcelona".

It nearly feels the narrow exit, on away goals after a 6-6 aggregate draw, only serves to paper over the cracks because, on this evidence, Guardiola needs a complete rebuild in defence and also in midfield.

Leroy Sane pulled one back on 71 minutes as City regained the lead 6-5 on aggregate, but Tiemoue Bakayoko's terrific header sent the Premier League side tumbling out of the competition.

Questions have been asked of Guardiola's tactics and selection with the Spaniard coming in for some heavy criticism.

"I tried to convince them in all the meetings we had to come here, try to attack and score", he said. Some of it is justified, some not. We should have done better and deserve to be in the next round.

"I have more power than ever in my life as a manager, for me it's a big challenge and I want to deal with that, I want to see myself if I am able to do that, that is my impression".

"In the second half we were much better but it was not enough". It's not a fluke, it's a stylistic issue we have against deep-lying defences and teams who counteract our first press with a long-ball.

Needless to say, City were taken apart.Leonardo Jardim has built a brilliant team with Kylian Mbappe's pace and power up front, Bernardo Silva pulled the strings from midfield and Benjamin Mendy nearly ran the game from left-back.
