Manchester City progressed to the semi-finals of the Champions League after beating Bayern Munich 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium and drawing 1-1 in Germany.

“There’s no difference in class. It looks like that from the results, but it’s actually a difference in self-confidence and in form,” Tuchel said.

“For the little we allowed (City) to do, we were brutally punished.”

“We played against the best team in Europe today, the most in-form team in Europe,” Tuchel added.

“We played completely on the same level, (but) in either game we didn’t have even a tiny bit of luck.”

“To beat the best teams, not just to measure up against them but to beat them, you need to not only use 100 percent of your chances, but you need luck, you need decisions to go your way and maybe even a deflection,” added the Bayern coach.
