Not very often it is possible to observe Josep Guardiola, one of the most honored coaches of the Champions League, jumping as a small child and reacting very emotionally on every scored goal. Johannes Cruijff, the legendary coach of Barcelona, approximately 25 years ago, was doing the same thing as now Guardiola is doing.
But the Spanish coach was not hiding his emotions. As during the long period of time his current football team Manchester City was constantly trailing to its rivals in the Champions League by score.
GOAL SCORING SHOW AT ETIHAD STADIUM
That was the first battle of 1/8 finals of the Champions League, during which the rival of Guardiola’s team became Monaco (Ligue 1, France). The score during this extremely interesting match was constantly changing 1:0, 1:1, 1:2, 2:2, 2:3, 3:3, 4:3 and the final score - 5:3.
If the center forward Radamel Falcao had been able to convert a penalty with the score 1:2 it would be possible that “citizens” had lost the match with the score 1:3.
FURTHER HORIZONS FOR “RED-WHITES”
But the Colombian hesitated and hypnotized the goalkeeper of Manchester City Wilfredo Caballero – as the result he was unsuccessful.
So the football players of Manchester City had won with the advantage in 2 goals and now they are the obvious favorites. But do the players from Monaco have any chances? The only option is possible – home winning with the difference in 2 goals but not more than 4:2. For example, 2:0, 3:1 and 4:2. In this case the team of Leonardo Jardim will enter the next stage.
Now, in the frames of the calendar match of the 27 tour of the national championships, the ‘red-whites” are facing very difficult away match to Bretagne (Guingamp). In this season the team of famous defender of PSG (1990-1995) Antoine Kombouaré became stronger than the Champion of the country and Olympique de Marseille with the same score -2:1.
And now the Bretons are ready to meet with Monegasques. Better bet on scored goals.
