PSG came out as a different team, City as well and there's final result 1:2.
Guardiola finally won in the CL away leg after exactly 10 long years, his second away victory ever. :)

Anyways City are going to win by like 4 goals next week, aren't they?
Agree. That's what bothers me the most. You can't win them all, but losing due to something so preventable is just... Heart-breaking.

Does it means that he is to lift it again?

Love the CL, but watching this game was hard. Bayern are so much better than both these teams.

Happy for Pep, but those two goals were lucky as fuck. PSG lost their legs.

He is on a right track to do it. He won against Gladbach, BVB and PSG. 3 away legs won in 3 phases, in my personal dictionary that means Manchester are in the CL final and I would say yes.

Guardiola is finally set to win it. He was so lucky today with those 2 goals, but his team finally won the match after 2010/2011 in the CL semis.

We also won all of our away legs in 2012/2013 with only one difference - we demolished our opponents like hurricane.

This is why winning CL is so difficult

This is by no means Pep's best CL run since he left Barça. However if City make it to the final he will get more credit than in previous years.

He's always been unlucky with the small details since he left Barça. Either a 100% goal chance or a penalty missed in a crucial moment, controversial referee decisions, poor GK performances...

But last night it was the opposite. I don't think City were that good but they scored two lucky goals. And same thing happened vs Dortmund.

You mean in the Semi Finals?


Pep has beaten Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund home and away in less than a year and now he's also beaten PSG in Paris.

How long will you carry on with that? :!:

Yes, in the semis.

As long as I'm Bayern fan and keep highlighting this fact as our failure between 2013-2016 along with his experiments in crucial matches and Guardiola's failure in all seasons except 2010/2011. :) It's the key detail and people intentionally ignored it and disrespected it when he was at Bayern and Barcelona.

This is the pure evidence why the Catalan finally reached the semifinal with the Englishmen and why he will likely play the CL final. He also stopped forcing that look for width and started to search depth and verticality.
Last night City wasn't exactly great and convincing but at least the team won on luck and that is also part of sport and life.

You read it here first about Manchester City in the CL final. The Sheikhs are already 70% in the final.

Well, but it’s fair to say that, luck or no luck, all three of our SF away games with him were terrible and we never even looked like we could score... I know, kinda "so did Shitty" - but that doesn’t negate the fact that his away games are really nothing to write home about...

Well, except for the first time... They at least all looked like they could score...

Look, I think he’s a great coach, but his strength is his weakness: he tends to overthink
