DREAM TEAM POINTS Monaco 3 Man City 1

DREAM TEAM POINTS Monaco 3 Man City 1

As the first leg ended 5-3 for Manchester City, it was no real surprise that the second encounter started at such an extraordinary pace, even without injured Monaco hitman Radamel Falcao and suspended defender Kamil Glik.

"My mistake was being not able to convince them to do that. Matches like this are meant to be enjoyed and I love these games when there's so much at stake".

Before the second leg, Guardiola had said: "Our plan is ideal but we will see".

But Monaco had the last say on the night when Tiemoue Bakayoko headed in the victor after 77 minutes to make aggregate scores 6-6. One of the star players was Monaco's Kylian Mbappe, who scored the first goal last night.

Leonardo Jardim implored his Monaco players iron out the mistakes that cost them dearly in the first leg as they attempt to overturn a 5-3 defeat in Wednesday's Champions League last 16.

"We played exceptional in the second half, but the first one we forgot to be there", the former Barcelona boss said, via City's website. "But it's my eighth year and I knew how complicated this competition is".

City's exit also leaves Leicester City as the only English club left in this season's Champions League. The problem was the first half when we were not there. Set pieces. You lose five minutes of concentration and you're out. "They are a strong team but we have already shown we have a lot of quality too".

City grew into the game midway through the second half and there was a sense the goal was coming when Sane fired into the roof of the net.

The loss marks the first time that a Guardiola side have failed to make the last eight of the Champions League. We knew they had quality players, we knew they had risky players. I tried, I tried - and I will try again.

Sergio Aguero scored twice while Raheem Sterling, John Stones and Leroy Sane were all on target for City in a remarkable meeting at the Etihad Stadium, in which Monaco had led 2-1 and 3-2 before collapsing late on. We have to admit that the German side didn't have any luck because they had several situations where they missed. Should they combine for just three goals, they'll surpass the 11 goals that Real Madrid, the eventual champion, and Schalke combined to score in the round of 16 in 2014.

Whether Manchester City will ease through the game or Monaco will cause an upset remains to be seen, but it is for sure going to be one nail-biting game.
