Borussia Monchengladbach coach Andre Schubert felt his team lost focus in their 2-1 Champions League defeat to Manchester City.

On their first home match in Europe’s top competition for 30 years, Monchengladbach took a deserved 54th minute lead through Lars Stindl.

They would have been ahead long before but for a string of fine saves from Joe Hart – most notably when the England goalkeeper kept out Raffael’s first-half penalty.

Nicolas Otamendi levelled for Cityin the 65th minute – a goal eventually credited Andreas Christensen – and the visitors asserted themselves from that point on, with Sergio Aguero winning and converting a 90th-minute penalty to cruelly leave Monchengladbach with two defeats from their opening Group D games.

“We are very disappointed,” Schubert told reporters.

“We have worked very hard, but we played against a top European team.

“The penalty against us in the last minute was also down to a lack of focus.

“Our performance was really strong, so the outcome of the game is naturally very bitter.”
