Champions League: Why Man City lost 2-1 to Basel - Guardiola

Manuel Pellegrini reveals biggest mistake that he made at Manchester City

The 23-year-old winger, who has been linked with Arsenal, has now explained how Guardiola went to him after the game to praise his performance.

City were beaten 2-1 by the Swiss champions, their first home loss for 18 months, but it did not prevent them going through to the Champions League last eight 5-2 on aggregate.

This defeat against Basel also continues a unwanted streak as City have never won the second leg of a last-16 Champions League tie.

Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus put City ahead in the eighth minute, but the visitors drew level nine minutes later when Mohamed Elyounoussi buried the ball in the bottom corner. This could even blossom into a treble, with the club through to the Champions League quarter-finals.

Indeed, it was hard to draw too many conclusions from what was only City's fourth loss of the season in all competitions.

Guardiola, who wore the ribbon as he fulfilled pre-match media duties for the Premier League leaders' forthcoming trip to Stoke City, has argued his symbol is addressing a humanitarian and not a political issue despite accepting the charge.

Lambert has only guided his side to one win in six matches but has succeeded in making them more hard to beat, with just one defeat coming in that time and he is keen for his side to build on those solid foundations.

Curry (ankle) out at least two games
The Spurs' next two games are at Oklahoma City and at Houston, and they have 10-of-12 against teams now in the playoffs coming up. As a result, a handful of teams has scrambled to try to catch them, and another handful has decided instead to chase the future.

Aymeric Laporte switched off as Elyounoussi cut back from the right and fed Lang, who rifled a shot past Bravo at the near post.

"Any team that makes six changes may have problems but in the second-half, we thought we had finished the game".

The count related to the Manchester City manager's wearing of a yellow ribbon in support of imprisoned Catalan politicians during his side's FA Cup defeat at Wigan Athletic on 19 February. The champions are still Chelsea. "I just prefer to play at the weekend, when all the other teams are playing". Tottenham Hotspur were eliminated form the competition by a relentless Juventus side.

"Of course the goal he scored will be good for his confidence".

City broke a new record for most passes completed by a team in this year's edition of the Champions League. Many of those passes lacked penetration, though. Just to pass to pass for itself is nothing. "In the second half it was really, really poor".

German winger Leroy Sane danced through the Basel defence and set up Bernardo Silva whose low cross was tapped in by the Brazilian forward for his first goal since November.
