Wild and entertaining game in Glasgow, City stops winning streak

Champions League: Celtic Glasgow 3-3 Manchester City

A glorious night in Scotland stopped Guardiola’s men winning streak to 10 games this season as the Citizens came in Scotland with a perfect record since the Spaniard took over the coaching job. It is still a good point for the Citizens in a very disputed group before the clash versus Barcelona [victorious at Monchengladbach 2-1 sans Messi].

The coach reacts after the match:

“It was difficult for us to start in the first half and second half with a goal against us, that’s why I’m so happy for the reaction of the players – it’s not easy to score three goals away. In the second-half – the last 20 minutes – we made absolutely everything so I don’t know how many chances they had after the three goals, it’s a pity because to win here would be a good step forward but we need to (play) from the beginning.

This group, this Club, we are going to fight until the last game to qualify. 

It’s football, it’s Europe, the opponents are good. When you see the last 24 games at home for Celtic they lost just three. I know how difficult it is, that’s why the reaction was amazing. We knew they would start strong, we knew the second goal – it was unlucky – but how we play until the end… I don’t remember an action from Celtic after their third goal. Claudio didn’t stop anyone else, in the last minutes we had a lot of chances. It’s okay, it’s one point, we didn’t lose.”
