Pep Guardiola hailed his Manchester City side despite them drawing blank in their tight goalless Champions League clash with Porto which saw them confirmed as group winners.
City had already secured qualification for the last 16 with two games remaining, and faced little threat from the hosts at the back at the Estadio do Dragao.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
But Guardiola's side were unable to force a way through and make it five wins from as many group matches, with Ruben Dias missing from a yard out and Gabriel Jesus having a goal ruled out for offside.

Ruben Dias and City were rarely troubled but the defender missed the best chance of the game
Porto meanwhile needed just a point to join City in the knockout stages, and set up with a defensive shape to hold on for a draw, but Guardiola was more than happy with what he saw from his side.
'We attacked, we didn't concede one corner, we didn't concede one shot on target,' Guardiola said.
'Alongside Benfica they are the best side in Portugal for the quality they have, the physicality they have, how quick they are up front. We played exceptionally well.
'Unfortunately we couldn't score but we came here to finish first. We are happy, I guess, and Porto as well.'
