But the low attendance on a Champions League night clearly frustrated Guardiola, who is yet to guide the Citizens to European glory.
The Catalan boss has gone out of his way to ask Man City fans to attend Saturday’s game against Southampton to boost the team amid concerns over another disappointing presence in the stands.
“The quality of the players was better today, and that’s why we won,” Guardiola added.
“We scored 16 goals in the last three games here. I’d like more people to come on Saturday.
“We will be tired. Southampton are so dangerous. I invite all our people to come 3pm to watch our game.”
