Update Tactics not important in Champions League: Guardiola after City fall short to Lyon

[Image: 2020-08-15T202910Z_177419520_R.png?Z97qD...ze=770:433]

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola stood by his decision to shake up his side's tactics in their Champions League quarter-final against Olympique Lyonnais after his team suffered a shock 3-1 defeat by the unfancied French outfit.

Guardiola strayed from the 4-3-3 formation with which his side had outclassed 13-times winners Real Madrid in the last 16, instead fielding a back-three including vastly inexperienced Erik Garcia, 19, as the central defender.

"In this competition the tactics are not the most important thing," Guardiola told a news conference.
