Manchester City and Porto played a goalless draw on Tuesday in the Champions League group stage clash.
The Citizens failed to make their chances count. Ruben Dias had the best chance as he had the goal at his mercy late in the second half.
However, the former Benfica star somehow managed to miss from a yard out.
Gabriel Jesus thought he had netted a late winner but his effort was disallowed for offside.
Ahead of the match Pep Guardiola and Porto manager Sérgio Conceição had been involved in a bitter war of words, which continued after the game.
City boss said per Record: “We attacked, we played a good game, but FC Porto had a lot of people behind. In this game, we had opportunities and did not score. They almost always had 8 players in the area. Marega and Corona, the earlier, they were also far behind.”
Conceição was asked what he thought about Guardiola’s comments about his side’s tactics. And he gave a savage response:
“If I had his budget, his players, and still couldn’t get a win, I’d be sad too,” he claimed.
