Man City make history

Manchester City were 2-0 down to Leipzig at the break but goals from Erling Haaland, Phil Foden and Julian Alvarez in the second half handed the Manchester outfit a historic win.

Manchester City came from 2+ goals down at half-time to win a Champions League game for the very first time on Tuesday, having lost all six such games before today.

Pep Guardiola spoke at length about his side’s comeback in his post-match press conference on Tuesday evening:

“We had to be relaxed as possible and we reacted really well,” he told TNT Sports. “We are first in the group and I am very satisfied for the reaction at the end. The team runs and fights and has spirit.

“We changed with our press. Rico [Lewis] was again exceptional and Phil [Foden] in the final third had decisive movements. I think Jeremy [Doku] changed our rhythm.

“Not about disappointment, had to do something abou their high pressing,” he said. “I admit I didn’t think they would play five at the back, playing 5-4-1. I had to change something. Our pressing wasn’t good. Important thing is second half it helps us.

“I am pretty sure today if we have to win the game to qualify we would not play the way we play. But we talked about the problems we have [in the first half]. I know Leipzig. When we won in the past, except last season when we won 7-0, always was tight, tight games.
