Champions League

Watch Pep Guardiola go absolutely ballistic at Riyad Mahrez on Man City touchline midway through RB Leipzig clash

PEP GUARDIOLA gave Riyad Mahrez an almighty rollocking during Manchester City's Champions League clash against RB Leipzig.

City's boss was seen yelling at the Algerian just inches from his face despite his side being 4-2 up and Mahrez having scored a penalty.

Guardiola looked absolutely fuming - even by his own animated standards.

Mahrez appeared to feebly argue back on a couple of occasions but Pep was having none of it.

His wild-eyed gesticulations continued with a few F-words appearing to be thrown in before Mahrez eventually got on with the game.

The match proved to be a thriller at the Etihad with six goals scored by the 70 minute mark.

Nathan Ake and a Nordi Mukiele own-goal saw the home side race into a 2-0 lead inside half an hour.

Christopher Nkunku pulled one back for Leipzig before Mahrez's emphatic penalty saw City take a 3-1 lead in at the break.

The second-half started in equally frantic fashion with Nkunku's second on 51 minutes making it 3-2.

But Jack Grealish scored his first ever Champions League goal just five minutes later to restore his side's two-goal lead.

Nkunku completed his hat-trick on 73 minutes but Leipzig's renewed hope was short-lived once again.
