The Colombian scored a double for the Ligue 1 leaders at the Etihad Stadium, making up for a missed second-half penalty with a glorious chip to put his side 3-2 up. However, they crumbled defensively late on and have left themselves a mountain to climb at Stade Louis II in three weeks.
Given the nature of Tuesday’s fixture, however, the 31-year-old attacker believes his side are still in with a chance.
“Nothing is finished,” he told beIN Sports. “Unfortunately we could not get the victory tonight. Now we must prepare for the second leg at home.”
Monaco have been in freescoring form this season and have netted 111 times already in all competitions. With three away goals under their belts, any kind of low-scoring two-strike success would be enough to see them eliminate Pep Guardiola’s charges.
