Manuel Pellegrini: We got a little bit of luck at the end


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says luck played a part in his side's 2-1 away win against Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Citizens desperately needed all three points after losing their first game against Juventus.

And they needed a late Sergio Aguero penalty to register their first win in the Champions League.

"It was a strange game," Pellegrini is quoted as saying by the BBC.

"For 65 minutes both teams had very good chances to score, we did not defend well. In the last half hour we improved a lot and won the game.

"We knew that Borussia have a very fast team. Joe Hart made some brilliant saves. It could have been 4-4 after an hour but then we dominated the game.

"We got a little bit of luck at the end but we have had plenty of bad luck recently."
