Pep Guardiola sank back into his seat with a look of disbelief and disgust. Not once but twice. He had warned his players about the perils of cheap goals in Europe and they failed to heed his words at the Etihad.
Luckily for Manchester City, there was a small price to pay on this occasion. A four-goal lead from the first leg in Switzerland last month meant they were never in danger of losing this Champions League last-16 tie.
City go into the quarter-final draw for only the second time and that was never in doubt.
