Manchester City produced a superb stunning fightback to claim a 2-1 away win over Paris Saint-Germain in their UEFA Champions League semi-finals first leg, much to manager Pep Guardiola’s delight.
Guardiola insisted the job was far from done, despite taking a massive step towards the final.
“PSG scored four goals in Camp Nou and three goals against Bayern Munich,” Guardiola said.
“They have the quality to do it. You play cautious sometimes, but in a good sense. I was not complaining.
“I said at half-time, I understand why they were like this but try to play our game. Go out there and try to do it.
“They were fantastic. I admire them going from not playing good to playing well, it means a lot.
“You cant win qualification in first leg - but you can lose it… Anything can happen in the second leg.”
Meanwhile, PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino refused to wave the white flag, insisting the Parisians can still reach the decider.
“Of course, we played well in the first half (against Manchester City on Wednesday) and it’s our hope to go and play well in Manchester away from home,” Pochettino said.
“We played well in Barcelona and also in Munich. Belief is the most important.”
