Why Manchester City are still on 29-game unbeaten run despite being knocked out by Real Madrid in Champions League

Why Manchester City are still on 29-game unbeaten run despite being knocked out by Real Madrid in Champions League

Man City are still unbeaten in 29 games and made history against Chelsea

Manchester City have extended their unbeaten run with a win against Chelsea but fans have been left confused.

City kept their hopes of a double alive thanks to Bernardo Silva’s second-half goal which booked their place in the FA Cup final against either Manchester United or Coventry City.

Silva was the hero at Wembley after cruelly missing a crucial penalty in mid-week as Pep Guardiola’s side exited the Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men needed penalties to dethrone the reigning European champions and deny Guardiola the chance of winning historic back-to-back trebles.

Victory against Chelsea saw City extend their unbeaten run to 29 games, breaking a club record in the process.

Some fans were left confused that City were classed as undefeated after failing to progress past Madrid and into the Champions League semi-finals.

However, there is a very simple explanation as explained by FIFA.

FIFA state a team that loses a penalty shoot-out is eliminated from the tournament while the winning team in the shoot-out advances to the next round or is crowned champion but the match is classed as a draw.

Therefore, City’s game against Madrid is officially recorded as a tie despite them being knocked out of the competition.

After the win, Guardiola hailed his Man City squad and labelled the win over Chelsea as one of their greatest ever.

He said: “The game was tight. Chelsea had incredible transitions and controlled the ball well.

“We lost some easy balls because we were tired. Players made an incredible effort.

“What they have done today was one of the greatest things I have seen in a group of players [after] 120 minutes against Madrid, [with their] physicality and the emotion.

“The day after recovery then yesterday, we just say ‘hi’ and you can’t prepare anything.”

City face Brighton away from home on April 25 in their next league game.
