Pep Guardiola was delighted to see his City side claim a fourth straight clean sheet in the 7-0 victory over RB Leipzig on Tuesday.

Erling Haaland scored five times - only the third time a player has achieved that in a single UEFA Champions League match - while Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne added gloss to the scoreline.

The 8-1 aggregate win sees his team through to the last eight in Europe for the sixth consecutive season.

When is the quarter-final draw?

Now the boss has stated it was keeping Leipzig out that gives him confidence for the quarter-final challenge to come.

“Always we have scored goals here in the Champions League,” he said.

“We scored four against Madrid, six against Monaco, four against Tottenham.

“The problem is not the feeling that we don’t score goals. The problem is we concede stupid goals in the past.

“We give them. Most of the cases we give them.

“And in this competition and one of the reasons why for the build-up, for many things, we play four central defenders in that way, it does not mean you are defending team.

“I know my team. They are so solid. Nathan [Ake] is so focused for 90 minutes. They are so stable here.

“Ruben [Dias] and Manu [Akanji] as well. It doesn’t matter what happens. John [Stones] as well. That is what we need in this competition.”
