Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has stated that everyone in the dressing room was ‘calm’ after their Champions League semi final first leg win over Paris Saint-Germain.
City go into the second leg with a 2-1 advantage in Manchester in a week’s time, after coming from behind to beat PSG in Paris.
Goals in the second half from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez give City a vital advantage, as they look to make the final for the first time in the club’s history.
“I’m sure the second leg will be different because Mauricio [Pochettino – PSG coach] will learn and see the game,” Guardiola said.
“We will also see the game and change something to be more fluid and aggressive in our game and do it.
“Now rest. I was happy that in the locker room afterwards the players were so calm. No cheering, just calm, because we know anything can happen in the second leg.”
He added: “We faced a team that scored four goals at Camp Nou, that scored three goals in Munich – it is a team that is able to do whatever they want because they have the quality to do it.
“That’s why when you start the game you are a little bit cautious. I’m not complaining. At half-time I said I’m not complaining, I understand you feel the responsibility because you want to get to the final.
“It’s just to understand how to handle this and be ourselves, don’t be shy. If we lose, we lose. If we don’t get to the final we will try again next season, but try to play our game like we spoke without the ball.”
