Man City Crash Out Of Champions League

Manchester City crashed out of the Champions League on away goals after a 3-1 defeat to Monaco in their last-16 second leg on Wednesday. A desperate first-half display at the Stade Louis II saw the visitors squander their two-goal first-leg advantage earned from a 5-3 win at the Etihad two weeks ago.

Kylian Mbappe and Fabinho gave the hosts a deserved 2-0 lead as City struggled to cope with Monaco's attacking brilliance. Pep Guardiola's side improved markedly after the break and looked to be heading into the last eight after Leroy Sane's 71st-minute strike put them 5-6 ahead on aggregate.
Sloppy marking from a Thomas Lemar set-piece allowed Tiemoue Bakayoko to head in Monaco's crucial third goal six minutes later. The 3-1 victory on the night ensures Monaco advance to Champions League quarter-finals, while defeat means Guardiola has failed to reach the semi-finals of the competition for the first time in his managerial career.
