Borussia Dortmund interim coach Edin Terzic has warned Guardriolla of knocking him out of Champions League competition when the two teams meet again in the return fixture in Germany. City managed to get a slim 2-1 victory at Etihad, with Dortmund managing to get that crucial away goal. Terzic warned, “‘We are not done yet.”
The Dortmund boss said:
“Pep had some nice words for me at full-time, but we are not done yet. We will see each other again in eight days’ time,” said Terzic.
“It’s half-time and the tie is still open.
“We will be ready to give it our all to overturn the result and reach the next round. We kept their chances to a minimum and posed a threat ourselves going forward. It was evenly matched so we are disappointed with the result in the end.”

The performance did not please Pep who felt that his team should have done more ahead of a return fixture. Pep Guardiola now blams the pressure on his team, who are seen as favorites to be the cause of yesterday’s performance.
Pep, who has never progressed past the quatre final Champions League stage with Machester City said:
“When you win 26 games in 27 and they are not winning the Bundesliga, the pressure is on our shoulders,”
“Everything is guaranteed for us. Everybody believed we would win. We had an incredible commitment and desire to go through.
“Now we fly there at 2-1 – always they score but we will adjust a few things we could not do today.
“In a calm way, the best way possible, the game we played and see what we can do better.
“We will go there to win the game. I ask the players to win the game. We did it and now we go to Dortmund not to defend.
“We will adjust our pressing, adjust our build-up and play 90 minutes to try and reach the semi-final.”
“To play good in the areas we want to we need to make good build-up and today was not good; Joao (Cancelo) and Rodri were not clever to receive the ball in positions for the other ones but it’s difficult always to do what we want to do because they have quality. But it’s a good result and we have another chance in one week.
“We’re going to adjust a few things to go there and try to win the game.
“[Foden] was a threat in the second half. He was a real threat, arriving in the final third. He had two, three chances and finally scored.”
