Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has insisted that he does not regret his mathematical error that meant his side did not push for a fourth goal in their 3-2 win away to Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.
Had City won 4-2 they would have overtaken Bayern at the top of the group, but Pellegrini said that he was only thinking about the win and not the group permutations.
"Before the match we had to win," he told BBC Sport. "We knew we had to score one more goal than them when they played here.
"When they scored, I knew it was not enough because of goal average but when they scored second I didn't think about scoring five.
"I tried to think more about the game because we were losing 2-0. I recognise my mistake but I don't have a guilty conscience."
