Manchester City Manager Manuel Pellegrini Miscalculates Goal Difference Against Bayern Munich [VIDEO]

Needing only a single goal late on to win Champions League Group D, Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini evidently was unaware of the situation.

When James Milner gave the Blues a 3-2 lead in the 62nd minute, City needed a single goal to top the group but the manager evidently thought City needed to strike twice. He told Sky Sports that if the Blues scored a fourth, he would have considered bringing on Sergio Aguero.

As it was, City won the game 3-2 but were one goal short of winning the group. The draw for the next round of the UEFA Champions League will be conducted next week.
