Man City have only 15 senior players fit for Hoffenheim clash

Sane said: "I just regret we didn't score the goal".

Nicolas Otamendi also hit the woodwork with a glancing header from a Gundogan free-kick. "The people in front are 21, 22 years old we need to be more calm in these positions", added Guardiola.

City struck the goal frame twice before equalizing when Sane stepped up to send a powerful, dipping free kick past goalkeeper Oliver Baumann in the first minute of stoppage time. We're in the best 16 teams in Europe. His second of the game - and eighth of the season - came just after the hour mark when he finished off a swift counter-attack.

Hoffenheim claimed the advantage in the 16th minute after Aymeric Laporte bundled over Benjamin Hubner.

Croatia striker Kramaric, who has scored in his last eight games for club and country, said: "We are still hoping".

City made life hard for themselves with a flat performance in losing at home to Lyon in their opening group game and were similarly caught cold having already secured their place in the last 16.

"It's about trying to finish first to have an advantage in the last 16". Provided usual outlet down the flanks, which stretched the Germans as both Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus made the most of the extra space. With only Baumann to beat, Sterling squared the ball to Sane, who opted to pass inside to Bernardo Silva instead of shooting and the chance was squandered.

Guardiola, speaking at a pre-match press conference dominated by questions about the alleged racial abuse experienced by Raheem Sterling, did not confirm the nature of midfielder Fernandinho's injury.

As for Foden, who signed a new contract at City this week, he was denied the goal of the night by Baumann, who tipped over his stinging volley. He looks like he is skinny and not strong, but he is really really strong.

"I don't think I will ever have doubts about the guy".

He said: "I'm proud of the way we have played in the Champions League".

"He's an outstanding young player, England has a diamond", Guardiola said after the match, according to BT Sport.

"They were incredible how they created, how they did it - even with 10 players for 30 minutes, and they lost!"
