“We have to control our emotions and do what we have to do,” Guardiola told reporters after Tuesday’s game. “There will be a referee there and we have to play our game.

“(Atletico) have faced this kind of knockout stages many times and it will be a good test for us with our maturity in this game.

“Jack reacted really well and stayed focused on what we needed to do.”
