The Sky Blues carved out a fair few opportunities but couldn’t capitalize on them due to their own wastefulness and Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Manchester City “created enough chances to score” and “should’ve scored” against Paris Saint-Germain, says Pep Guardiola.

Man City came back empty-handed from their trip to Parc des Princes following a 2-0 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night.

A brilliant first-half goal by Idrissa Gueye and another phenomenal Lionel Messi strike proved more than enough for the Parisian club to move to the top of Champions League Group A, with the English champions dropping down to third place.

“I think we made a really good game, quite similar to Stamford Bridge,” Guardiola said at his post-match press conference.

“Maybe we were a little less aggressive in our first actions for the quality of the players that we have, but in general it was a fantastic game. We did everything, I didn’t see the stats but I think we created enough chances to score.

“The quality they have everyone knows it, but I think we did a really good game with personality, but we should’ve scored goals and we didn’t do it and that’s why we lost the game.”
