Pep Guardiola’s Champions League curse with Manchester City struck again when he and his team blew what he had called a ‘once-in-a-lifetime opportunity’ to win the biggest club prize in the game when they crashed to defeat against Lyon, the seventh best team in France.
Raheem Sterling compounded City’s misery with an astonishing open-goal miss five minutes from time and Lyon promptly confirmed their shock victory when substitute Moussa Dembele scored his second goal of the night following an uncharacteristic mistake by Ederson.
