Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini bemoaned his side's inefficiency in front of goal after slumping out of Europe with defeat at Borussia Dortmund.
City could not even secure the consolation of a place in the Europa League as they slipped to a 1-0 defeat at the Westfalenstadion in their final Champions League Group D game.
Mancini felt his team gave their best but paid the price for failing to convert chances, a problem he feels is growing.
Mancini said: "The big problem is that to win games you need to score.
"If not, you lose or the game finishes 0-0. At the moment we are not scoring a lot of goals, as we did last year.
"When we get chances we need to score - we need to resolve this problem if we are going to win."
