Champions League: Guardiola Reveals Best Player For Man City Against Real Madrid

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has selected Gabriel Jesus as the best player for his team in the home and away games against Real Madrid in the Champions League round of 16.

City went through to the quarter-finals stage of the UEFA Champions League on Friday night with a 2-1 win over Madrid .

Jesus gave an assist for Raheem Sterling’s opener in the first half, before capitalising on a Raphael Varane mistake to net the second half winner for the sky blues.

“First half our wingers were more inside than outside and it was not good. Second half they played wider and it was better. It was a wrong decision I had done.

“This competition punishes you, we know that from our own experiences.

“Jesus was the man of the two games for us, he set up the first and scored the second,” Guardiola told BT Sport after the game.

The club (City) will now challenge Lyon, who eliminated Juventus, for a semi-final spot.
