Manchester City recently played against As.Roma in their Champions League group stages match that ended in a 1-1 draw as Sergio Aguero opened up the scoreboard at the 4th minute of the game but a few moments later a superb finish from Francesco Totti equalized the score.
Both sides collected 1 point from the game but Manuel Pellegrini did not hesitate in letting the world know that he was disappointed in the performance from his players as the Chilean manager believes that they could have played much better and even claimed the victory against the Italian club.
Manchester City’s Manuel Pellegrini said: "We did not play very well, especially in the first half. Maybe we were not accurate in our passing and when we lost too many balls, we did not have enough midfielders to recover’’
"I think the most problem was we lost possession from many easy passes. When the other team scores a goal, it is not just a problem of one or two players. Totti had too much space in that play. We didn't play in the way we normally play to score a goal. We have 12 more points to fight for and we will fight to the end to try and qualify."
Manchester City is currently located in the 3rd spot of Group E with 1 point collected so far. The Premier League club will be travelling to the Khimki Arena on October 21 to face off with CSKA Moskva and they will need to secure a victory if the English side wants to have any hopes alive on advancing through the next stages of the Champions League.
Bayern Munich is at the top of Group E as they still have not lost a single match and they are expected to progress without much trouble but the 2nd spot will be tightly disputed between As.Roma and Manchester City.
