Guardiola’s reaction

He tells BT Sport:

“Yeah, relief, better to win than draw. Still at 1-1 we had 90 mins to do it. 2-1, Champions League, we are going there to win the game. First half we were not clever with the ball, our pass was not better for the mate. Second half was much better, two or three clear chances to score the second or third, unfortunately didn’t happen, but after concede 1-1 we were there and we score the final goal.”

On why he brought Jesus on:

“To play good in the areas you want we need a good build up, today was not good. Joao and Rodri weren’t clever to receive the ball in the positions to contact for the other ones. It’s normal, the opponents are strong, the quality, the pace, upfront, difficult to do what we want to do. It’s a good result, 2-1 and we have a chance next week.”

Preparing for the second leg:

“We are going to watch the game, we know exactly what they do, we will adjust a few things and go there to win the game. We win last 27 games of 28, then Leeds, then to Germany to try and win the game.

“I say that Borussia Dortmund is a typical club from the Champions League. They used to play this Champions League for many years. We are 2-1, go to win, analyse what we have done.”

On Foden’s performance:

“Second half he was a threat, he played really well, one versus one in final third he had clear chances to score and finally he scored. We felt the pressure today for this competition at home, we don’t know how we will play, now we know eachother better, we go to analyse what we have to do like we have done this last six months to try to win.”
