Luckily for Pep and his team, they have Sergio AGUERO as the striker scored just six minutes later.
"This competition isn't always a red carpet".
But it's all focus back on the Premier League this weekend, with table-toppers City travelling to Merseyside to take on fellow high-flyers Liverpool on Sunday afternoon. "We have to live it like a club, for the players and myself it will be good", he said.
"We don't have history behind us".
"We've had one semifinal, one quarterfinal".
FEMA to test emergency alert system Wednesday
Officials estimate that upwards of 225 million Americans will receive the test alert on WEA-compatible wireless devices. Tomorrow, at around 2:18PM Eastern (11:18AM Pacific), you'll get a text message flagged as a " Presidential Alert ".
But that stung the visitors into life and when Silva deftly picked out Leroy Sane, the former Schalke star squared for Aguero - who overcame a foot injury to retain his place - to tap home. Pavel Kaderabek burst down the left and went down under pressure from Kyle Walker but Slovenian referee Damir Skomina dismissed his penalty appeal.
"I don't want to talk about officials", insisted the City boss.
But City finally got the victor after Stefan Posch was caught dallying inside the area, allowing Silva to find the bottom-right corner with typical assuredness. "I had a lot of special players at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, but he is on the list". I know Dejan Lovren thinks he is the best in the world, but I think he would be a worry and if one of the younger full-backs got injured....
"He is the sort of player who steps up in the hard moments and he deserves all of my respect".
City also made an uncertain start to the second half as Florian Grillitsch's long-range effort flew just over and they survived another scare when Ederson missed a header attempting to clear a long ball from Baumann.
"We created some good moments going forward and doing that against a side like Man City is something we can build on".
