Any manager would find it difficult to analyze a game like that, but Ancelotti performed a fantastic job.

“It was a good match, very good, from our side,” he said. “It was competitive and evenly matched until we had energy and put pressure on City. We pressed well in the opposition half, stealing a lot of balls, with transitions.

“We had the chance to go 3-1 up, then they scored two great goals and we had the desire and commitment to get back into the game. Now we’re at a slight disadvantage because we’re playing away in the second leg, but we’re confident that we can repeat the game we played here.”

Guardiola: We will take a first-leg draw

Guardiola and the Manchester City players’ primary goal was to avoid a first-leg loss when they went back to the Etihad for the second leg, and they succeeded in doing so.

“In the second-half we really showed our personality in terms of how we play,” the City boss told TNT Sports. “Coming back from 2-1 in Manchester would have been difficult. Instead we scored two fantastic goals but defending fifteen minutes in this stadium is an eternity. 3-3, we will take it.

“I told (the players) to be more calm and to attack outside. Now I say: ‘guys it’s 45 minutes after 90 minutes’. There is a lot of football to be played.

“We are lucky that Gvardiol is with us today. He was amazing in how he played. He’s a lovely guy and we are so happy to have him.”
