Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola claims his side’s first-leg victory after coming from behind in Paris will serve as a boost for when the team faces adversity once again, reports si.com.
After going 1-0 down in the first-half of their Champions League semi-final first leg, Guardiola’s men turned it around with a dominant second-half display, seeing them leave Paris with a 2-1 aggregate lead.
That turn around will serve as a reminder for the Manchester City players, the next time they face adversity, according to manager Pep Guardiola.
“We didn’t speak about that, we didn’t work. I would prefer don’t come from behind but football is unpredictable and most of the time you have to do it.
“Tomorrow in the bad moments I know we will react well,” Pep Guardiola said ahead of the match on Tuesday, as relayed by the Manchester Evening News’ Joe Bray.
He continued, “We know what we have to do to reach the final. We have done this season, we do it again.
“They are an extraordinary team, everybody knows it. They can create something nobody expects to win. Of course I look at their qualities, but it’s fresh what they leave on the pitch. At the same time we know how good we can be.”
