Manchester City's manager Pep Guardiola described the 2-1 victory over Real Madrid as an "important step," as his team reached the Champions League quarter-finals. Guardiola was speaking at a press conference in Manchester, on Saturday.

Guardiola said he was satisfied with the result, but pointed out that the team will have a lot to work on ahead of the clash with Lyon in Portugal.

"We created a lot of chances, clear, clear chances to score more goals and we can improve and hopefully we can do it", said Man City's boss, adding that the team's plan is to "stay there, eat well, be together, laugh a lot, work a lot."

The loss marked Zinedine Zidane's first elimination from the Champions League as Real Madrid's boss, after winning the competition in his first three tries.

Manchester City are set to play against Lyon at the Jose Alvalade Stadium in Lisbon, on August 15.
