Guardiola tells Man City: Beating Real Madrid not enough!

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says there's no time for his players to reflect on victory over Real Madrid.

City overcame record 13-time Champions League winners Real 4-2 on aggregate to progress to the quarter-finals.

Guardiola, though, said there was no time to sit back and revel in the win.

"We're here to try and win the Champions League," said the two-time winner when in charge of Barcelona.

"If we think that [beating Real] is enough we will show how small we are. If you want to win you have to beat the big clubs.

"I just spoke with the scouting department about Lyon and they told me to be alert. The players will go to Portugal to try to make the next step.

"We more than deserve to be in the next stage.

"To win the Champions League you have to beat a lot of teams. There are still Bayern Munich, Lyon, Barcelona, Napoli, Atletico Madrid - so many good teams."
