Manchester City reached the last 16 of the Champions League with a draw against Borussia Monchengladbach

Pep Guardiola says his impressive Champions League record does not mean Manchester City are guaranteed to succeed in the competition this season.

In seven seasons as coach of Barcelona and Bayern Munich, the 45-year-old won the Champions League twice and never failed to reach the semi-finals.

City have reached this season’s knockout stage with a game to spare.

“It looks like it is always easy but everything is so complicated,” said Guardiola.

The Spaniard’s side will finish second in Group C, meaning they will avoid Bayern when the draw for the last 16 is made on 12 December.
