De Bruyne: Man City deserved to beat Barcelona

Kevin De Bruyne felt Man City showed Barcelona their true colours after claiming a famous win over the European giants on Tuesday night.

Just a fortnight after being thrashed 4-0 at the Nou Camp, City turned the tables on Barca by coming from behind to beat the Catalan giants 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium.

De Bruyne, who scored with a sublime free-kick between two Ilkay Gundogan strikes, said: "I think we tried to play the same way we did in Nou Camp, but there we made some mistakes.

"Obviously if you make mistakes you lose 4-0.

"Here we made fewer mistakes and won 3-1. Barca are a very good team but I think we did really well and showed what we have got.

"The first half hour was a bit nervous but after that we found the key to put them under pressure.

"I think from the moment we scored (to make it) 1-1 we did really well. They didn't create a lot of chances any more.

"I don't think they knew how to break us in the second half and we could have scored more goals. Obviously it is a really well-deserved victory."

Pep Guardiola hailed a historic victory after Man City came from behind to stun Barcelona on a memorable Champions League night in England.

Ilkay Gundogan struck twice either side of a sublime Kevin De Bruyne free-kick to earn City a 3-1 win over the Spanish champions just two weeks after being thrashed 4-0 by the same opponents.

It was City's first success against the five-times European champions in six attempts over the past three years and confirmed their arrival at the elite level arguably more emphatically than last season's run to the semi-finals.

For Guardiola it was an impressive victory against the club he led to two Champions League triumphs.

Guardiola said: "This club was for many years out of Europe, while these kind of clubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich were playing every year.

"Maybe today is a good step. Now we realise, 'Wow, we won against the best team, so we are able to do that'.

"For the future generations, for new players coming in the future, they are going to realise, 'These guys were able to beat the best team, and we have to do it again'."
