Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has claimed that their failures in the Champions League have been down to their defence.
Erling Haaland netted five goals as City hammered RB Leipzig 7-0 on Tuesday evening to qualify for the quarter-finals with an 8-1 aggregate victory.
Guardiola has so far failed to win the Europe elite club competition during his stint with the Premier League champions.
The former Bayern Munich boss lost in the semi-finals last season after being beaten in the final by Chelsea the previous year.
“Always we have scored goals here. We scored four goals against Real Madrid. We scored six goals against Monaco. We scored four goals against Tottenham here.
“The problem is not that we do not score goals. The problem is that we conceded stupid goals in the past. We gift them. Most of the time, we gift them,” Guardiola told reporters at the Etihad.
