Manchester City Manager, Pep Guardiola, has noted that his side will need to be more prolific and score more goals to enable them advance to the next round of the Champions League.


Man. City fought from 3-2 down in an extraordinary round-of-16 first leg against the French side to win 5-3 on Tuesday with just 20 minutes remaining.

The Citizens will take a two-goal advantage to Monaco for the second leg on March 15, but Guardiola says his side will need to score away goals if they are to progress to the quarterfinals ahead of their host.

He told a post-match news conference, “We are going to fly to Monaco to score as many goals as possible.

“I would like to see how many teams are able to get a clean sheet against Monaco this season. They have fantastic players.

“We understood immediately they are going to attack with runs in behind. It’s so, so difficult but we created a lot of chances and I don’t know if Monaco have seen a team create as many chances as we did against them tonight.

“They always arrived with six or seven players and I haven’t seen a team attack with so many good players for a long time.

“Now we know each other better, we are going to adjust, they are going to adjust. If we don’t score in Monaco, we will be eliminated.”
