Juventus knock out Tottenham, Manchester City advance to UCL quarter final
Mar 10, 2018, 01:55
Qualification was a formality for the English club after its 4-0 win in Switzerland in the first leg and City coach Pep Guardiola fielded a virtual reserve team at Etihad Stadium.
City looked to have picked up where they left off after last month's 4-0 first-leg win over Basel as Jesus turned home Bernardo Silva's low cross.
The attacking midfielder has revealed even Guardiola took time to praise him for his display in Manchester.
"Passing the ball means passing to move the opponents and attack - to pass for itself is nothing".
Speaking at Tuesday's press conference ahead of the clash against Basel, Guardiola said: "We must be focused at not make any mistakes against Basel, it's a Champions League game and the Champions League is something special".
"We were just lacking in the same feeling in the second half [tonight] which wasn't good". Despite being the losing side, Manchester City completed 979 passes which turned out to be the highest total recorded since the inception of Champions League football in the early 90s.
City's last home defeat came in December, 2016 against Chelsea.

Guardiola feels the standout result from the first leg of last-16 matches serves to illustrate his point that stylish play and lavish investment are often no substitute for hard-bitten experience on the European stage.
And Jesus insisted his is happy to play a supporting role in City's bid for Premier League and Champions League glory.
At the Etihad stadium with nearly nothing to play for, Pep Guardiola handed a rare start to Yaya Toure and 17-year old England youth worldwide, Phil Foden. We just passed the ball.
Speaking after Wednesday evening's defeat, Pep Guardiola said: 'Phil was good and in the second-half he was perhaps the only one who tried to be aggressive. Foden plays a cushion pass to Sane who is allowed time and space to run across the edge of the box, working the ball wide to B Silva.
"Maybe people will think the way we played today, we are not able to fight to go through", Guardiola said. They are reigning Swiss Super League champions, regulars in the Champions League, and have an incredibly exciting young striker in Dimitri Oberlin.
His team are 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League with nine games to go and they are nearly into the quarter-finals of the Champions League after hitting four away goals in the first leg. "When the opportunity comes for me, I'll do my best and I'm sure that they'll support me".
