Leonardo Jardim believes Radamel Falcao losing his penalty shot was a defining moment in the 5-3 loss to Manchester City.
Monaco were leading by 2-1 when they were awarded a penalty early in the second half, only for Caballero to save Falcao’s weak effort.
Aguero equalised after eight minutes, before Falcao scored his second. However, City won 5-3 and Jardim believes if Falcao had scored it would have been a different story.
“We made a couple of errors in defence that we were punished for and I think the real key to this game was when we could have gone 3-1 up,” the Portuguese lamented. “I think Monaco played a great game. I have congratulated my players.
“This game was perhaps one of the most exciting games of the Champions League this season, exciting for the supporters,” he continued. “It was a great game for the supporter.
“I imagine everyone was happy to witness such a spectacle.
“We work hard to put on a show because we are passionate about football and we want to please the fans. Scoring three goals here at Manchester City is a really good show, a fantastic game.
“We’ve got 90 minutes to go, playing at home, so it’s far from over.”
