in the Champions League, insisting that he is more than satisfied with his men’s performance as they already had progressed to the next stage.

"In the first half we lacked rhythm, we had problems connecting and they have a really good team – we knew from before the group stage,"

Guardiola told reporters


"The second half was much better but unfortunately we made one or two mistakes and they punished us.

"We played better in the second half. We were more aggressive, we played to win the game and we lost. Congratulations to Leipzig.

"We made an incredible group stage, we qualified with one game left from a tough group, so I am more than satisfied with the performance in every single game and in February hopefully we can arrive in the best condition possible."
