UEFA Champions League

"We need to improve against Madrid" - Pep Guardiola

Pep Guardiola  acknowledged after the FA Cup semi-final defeat that his team did not play at the required level:  “We did not perform well, we did not measure up.  We are not prepared enough, and if you are not prepared at this level, they punish you. ”   

The match was to serve the team as a prelude to the decisive Champions League match against Real Madrid. The result was not what was desired, and Pep was sincere:  "It doesn't take a genius to know that we must improve when we play against Madrid." 

Pep reasoned that one of the great causes of the defeat was the bad first half of his own:  “The only reproach I have is that we did not play the first 45 minutes as we did after the break . This is the reason why we lost. ” After the break City improved, and even pardoned the tie. “Mistakes against the door are part of football, they can happen. They were not the reason why we lost, ”Guardiola reasoned.  

Manchester City's next game will be next Tuesday, against Watford, on the penultimate round of the Premier League.
