After a stirring UEFA Champions League win by Leicester City on Tuesday, Manchester City look to join the Foxes as the second English Premier League side in the Champions League quarterfinals when they travel to Monaco holding a two-goal lead in a second leg match that will live stream on Wednesday — following a wild first leg that saw not only eight goals but an astonishing 10 yellow cards.
Manchester City came out on top in that clash, defending their home turf with a 5-3 victory. But Manager Josep “Pep” Guardiola vowed on Tuesday that his team will press their advantage and play and aggressive game, looking to build on their lead rather than simply sit on it.
“I want to see a team from the first minute looking to win the game. After that, at this level everyone can beat you, but I don’t like my team to speculate. If you think only about defending for 90 minutes because you won 5-3, you kill yourself. What we have to do is go to score goals,” the legendary manager said at press conference.
“I am sure (Wednesday) will be a fantastic game again. I invite the people to come here. They are going to see a good game tomorrow, I am sure of that.”
