UEFA CL: Guardiola reacts to Manchester City eliminating Real Madrid

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola has warned his side beating Real Madrid is not enough as they target to win this season's Champions League. 

City beat Madrid 2-1 home and away to register a 4-2 aggregate to advance to the last 8 of the Champions League. Guardiola says if his side thinks beating the Los Blancos is enough then 'it would show how small they are' as they target to win the tournament. 

"We are here to try and win the Champions League. It is one step, if we think that is enough we will show how small we are. If you want to win you have to beat the big clubs," he told BT Sport. 

"It is important, we beat [Real] twice. Zinedine Zidane never lost knockout games. You see the calm and personality they play with, they are good."

On the game 

"We created a lot of chances and scored two goals with mistakes from them. We tried to convince them to go, go, and attack but it is not easy against this team."

"This competition punishes you, we know that from our own experiences. Jesus was the man of the two games for us, he set up the first and scored the second. We more than deserve to be in the next stage."
