Manager of Manchester City, Pep Guardiola, believes his team defied history in their breathless three- one victory over FC Barcelona, in the Uefa Champions League match played yesterday at Etihad Stadium.
A brace from Ilkay Gundogan and a stunning free-kick from Kevin de Bruyne sealed a stunning Champions League upset for the Catalan against his former employers after Lionel Messi had opened the scoring.
And Guardiola declared that his victors had opened a new chapter with the deserved win.
Following his side’s first competitive victory over their opponents, the delighted manager, hailed ‘awesome’ Sergio Aguero for the first match between the pair at the Nou Camp, which saw Barcelona cruise to a 4-0 win.
The victory, which leaves City needing three points to qualify from Group C from two games, sparked joyous scenes in the stands.
