Manchester City played out a boring 0-0 draw against FC Porto in the Champions League.
Albeit playing a boring match, the result confirms City’s first place in the group standings and Pep was a happy man.
“Congratulations to my team for this game and finishing first,” he told BT Sport. “We played to win, we didn’t concede a shot on target or a corner all game. Alongside Benfica, Porto are one of the best teams in Portugal, very physical. We did really well but unfortunately couldn’t score, all the players were fantastic.
“We struggled to score today but we played really well with incredible personality and many things about the game were brilliant.”
“Absolutely very happy – it’s more than the results, we played really well in all the games. 11 shots on target against Olympiakos and against Marseille as well and today we had lots of chances. Maybe not as much today but enough to win clearly but the way we played, the courage and defensively we were so good.”
Manchester City have blown hot and cold this season and that has particularly been because of their lack of goal threat upfront – something uncanny of a Guardiola team.
