Manchester City has progressed to the next round of the UCL and it is thanks to a 1-1 draw against Mochengladbach.
Guardiola congratulated his men, who got back in the game courtesy of a David Silva equaliser on the stroke of halftime after Raffael opened the scoring for the hosts.
The second half saw red cards handed to Stindl and Fernando in succession, but Barcelona’s victory over Celtic at Parkhead means City are through to the last 16 as runners-up in Group C behind the LaLiga champions.
“The first part of the season, it is so important to qualify for the next round and we did it –now we can focus on the Premier League,” said Guardiola on BT Sport, following his latest tussle with a Gladbach outfit that regularly caused Bayern Munich problems during his three seasons in the Bundesliga
“Of course, I was training here in Germany and I know how difficult that team [Gladbach] is.
“But we did it, so big congratulations to the team.”
