After his most recent missed penalty attempt, Riyad Mahrez will no longer be assigned to take penalties, according to Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.



Tuesday's Champions League 0-0 draw occurred after Mahrez missed his penalty attempt against Borussia Dortmund.

Gregor Kobel, who dove low to the right to get a strong hand behind the effort, saved his shot.

Both teams advanced to the next round thanks to the 0-0 scoreline in the Champions League match.

Guardiola said (as reported by the Manchester Evening News) after the game at Signal Iduna Park: "Riyad was exceptional two or three years ago. He shot the pen to go 1-1 here to help us reach the semis for the first time. He's been missed lately. He will consider.

With the penalties, he could now take a break, the man continued. He is of the mindset to go there and carry it out. The teams are physically strong and we give the advantage to them – it happens too many times. It’s many players. "

Meanwhile, Mahrez’s record as a regular penalty taker is rather poor.

The Algerian international has missed 10 of his 32 attempts for club and country.
