Full-time: Real Madrid 3-0 Wolfsburg

An incredible night at the Bernabeu.

Full-time: Manchester City 1-0 Paris Saint-Germain

The hosts progress to the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time in their history.

Kevin de Bruyne is the hero, with his second-half strike sealing the victory on the night.

We're into added time. Sergio Aguero, who has been carrying a knock, is removed for the last few seconds. He'll be relieved that penalty miss hasn't proven to be costly.

City are almost there.

City and Madrid are both counting down the seconds now. They are minutes away from a spot in the semi-finals.

We're almost into added time.

Zlatan has the ball in the net - but again, it's chalked off. The burly Swede was way offside and can have no complaints.

PSG have been dreadful tonight, it has to be said. This result and the performance raises the question of whether they are suffering from a lack of competition in their domestic league.

Less than ten minutes to go in both games now. PSG look to be completely out of the game at the Eithad in all honesty; Wolfsburg only need an away goal though, to eliminate Madrid.

Meanwhile, City are preparing to make a sub, with De Bruyne being replaced by Yaya Toure. Unsurprisingly, the Belgian gets a huge cheer.

GOAL: Real Madrid 3-0 Wolfsburg (Ronaldo)

Would you believe it? Real lead 3-2 in the Bernabeu and who has the goal? Cristiano Ronaldo, who else.

It's his 37th hat-trick in a Real shirt and serves to underline his true greatness, single-handedly taking the ten-times champions through to the semi-final stage.

His latest strike is from a freekick that ends in the bottom corner. Brilliant stuff.

GOAL: Manchester City 1-0 Paris Saint-Germain (De Bruyne)

A moment of quality from Kevin De Bruyne has, surely, sealed City's place in the semi finals.

He took the ball on the edge of the box, looked up and curled a beautiful right foot shot into the corner of the net.

The Etihad is bouncing!

PSG are starting to up the pace a bit now, knowing they need a goal in order to progress to the semi-finals. The thing is, where has their urgency been for the previous hour or so?

City, meanwhile, will surely start to feel the nerves the closer they get to the winning line.

PSG captain Thiago Silva misses a glorious chance from a corner, heading his effort into the ground and allowing Jose Hart to push it over.

The Brazilian subsequently held his head in his hands, acknowledging he ought to have done better. City survive, but the warning signs are there.

Given how much it cost to put these two teams together, there is an amazing lack of quality on show at the Etihad.

It's a case of one misplaced pass after another in this second half. But City won't about that if they can survive until the end.

With less than half an hour to go at the Etihad, Laurent Blanc has decided to make another attack-minded switch.

The classy Javier Pastore has been introduced.

It's still 2-0 to Madrid in the Bernabeu, by the way, after Cristiano Ronaldo scored two goals in two minutes to pull the ten-times champions back into the tie.

Can the former world player of the year score a hat-trick to seal Madrid's progression?

Another warning sign, as Di Maria dances his way into the area. However, the former Manchester United player directs his effort at a defender in light blue rather than one of his teammates.

The Parisians are edging their way into this contest, though.

The ball is in the City net, but it won't count. There was an offside well before it'd crossed the line. The hosts survive.

Thus far, it's a case of more of the same from PSG, who are struggling to get the likes of Lucas and Di Maria on the ball.

There is a real lack of cutting edge in their play, but as City will be aware, the Parisians have enough quality to turn this tie on its head in an instant.

Ibrahimovic goes close with a freekick from distance. Joe Hart had to reach low and to his right to claw that out.

Probably PSG's best moment of the match so far, though that's not saying much, to be honest.

Back under way in both games. City have a nervous 45 minutes in store.

Half-time: Manchester City 0-0 Paris Saint-Germain

Despite missing the penalty, it's a case of so far so good for City, who have dominated without creating too much.

PSG, on the other hand, have been pretty woeful. They look a shadow of the team we have been watching over recent months and will need a dramatic improvement if they are to impress.

PSG are being forced into an substitution. Thiago Motta is holding his hamstring and limps off the field.

He is replaced by the dynamic, but erratic, Lucas Moura. The Brazilian was once a transfer target of Manchester United, so it'll be interesting to see how he goes tonight. One thing he will provide is pace. And lots of it.

Once again, the French team give the ball away in a dangerous area. It falls to Jesus Navas on the edge of the box, but the goal-shy Spaniard cannot direct his effort goalwards.

Five minutes until half-time and PSG have not yet woken up. They have less than an hour to rescue their Champions League dream.

Despite the penalty woe, it is worth remembering that as things stand, City will progress to the semi-final stage of the competition.

And, whisper it quietly, PSG have barely posed a threat so far tonight. In fact, the French side are playing as if they are leading the tie, not City.

Aguero's misery is compounded when he twists his ankle after falling awkwardly from an aerial challenge.

He has been on the ground, receiving treatment and he may not be able to continue.

The Argentine doesn't look 100% fit, to be honest, but he appears determined to carry on playing. He's back on the field for the time being.

Aguero misses the penalty!

The little Argentine steps up confidently but passes the ball wide of the post. The subsequent look on his face says it all. He can't believe it and nor can anyone else inside the Etihad.

A key moment in the tie, that.

Penalty to City!

A woeful backpass by Aurier leaves the PSG keeper well short. Aguero pokes the ball past him before being tripped. Definite penalty, no doubts about that.

Aguero to take it...

The pattern of the game seems pretty clear at the moment, though. The French champions are hogging the ball for long periods, patiently waiting for openings to appear in the City backline.

For the hosts, on the other hand, the focus appears to be more centred on incisive counter-attacks, with Aguero proving the main danger.

Back at the Etihad... Aguero makes a good move up the left side and flashes a first-time shot just wide of the post.

That was possibly the hosts' best move of the match so far. As I said earlier, Aguero could be the key for City.

GOALS: Real Madrid 2-0 Wolfsburg (Ronaldo)

The record-breaking forward has breathed new life into Real's Champions League hopes, scoring twice in two minutes.

That evens the tie up at 2-2 and gives Los Blancos hope that they can perform an against-the-odds turnaround.

Zlatan comes closest to opening the scoring. The outspoken Swede hits a Ronaldo-like freekick from distance, which Joe Hart tips over the bar.

An early-ish warning for the hosts, that.

The PSG fans are making plenty of noise in the away end at the moment. But after a lively opening, neither side has given their supporters much to cheer.

The game has quickly become a bit of a cat-and-mouse affair, although a goal either way is sure to liven things up a bit.

There's still no score in Madrid, meanwhile, but Sergio Ramos has already struck the bar for the hosts from a corner.

We'll keep you updated with that game at the Bernabeu.

We're through seven minutes or so and Ibrahimovic has barely had a kick of the ball - which is good news for City.

The game has settled down a bit now, though, after that frantic start to proceedings.

Aguero looks lively early on, despite fitness concerns surrounding the Argentine.

If City can get plenty of the ball to their main man, as they have done early on, they will fancy their chances.

PSG, meanwhile, are simply looking to string together some passes and get a foothold in the game.

We're underway in Manchester, with City on the front foot from the beginning.

The hosts, cheered on by a packed crowd, are clearly looking to be positive from the outset. Looks like we have a cracking game in store.

Manuel Pellegrini speaking to BT Sport: "It will be a very big achievement because one of targets of club is to progress in the Champions League. I hope when we finish we can be in the semi-final knowing we played a very good team with very good players.

"Yaya Toure is fit but he worked just one or two days before the game against West Brom. He is not 100% and cannot play 90 minutes. I think it is better to keep Yaya if we need to attack later in the game. We must be very careful because they have very good players. The most important thing is to think as a big team and play like a big team."

Both of these ties are very delicately poised at the moment, with City and Madrid knowing that conceding an away goal could cost them dearly.

With so much at stake, the players of all four teams will be especially wary about making a mistake.

Yet, given the attacking talents of all four sides, you'd think there will be goals and plenty of near-misses, too.

Despite trailing from the first leg, Real manager Zinedine Zidane is confident of progressing to the semi-final stage.

"This is a big match, but you need a cool head to play in it," he said in the press conference ahead of the game.

"We are not going to win it in [the first] 10 or 15 minutes. It could be more difficult if they score, but that can happen.

"We must be focused from minute one. We have to score, but we have 90 minutes to do so. We need to be patient."

Over in Madrid, meanwhile, Real know they will need something special to turn around their two-goal deficit against German outfit Wolfsburg.

Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo will both need to be somewhere near there very best in order to achieve that ambition.

Los Blancos are set to be cheered on by a sell-out crowd inside the Bernabeu.

If reports are to be believe, Zlatan could end up playing for City's eternal rivals Manchester United.

The burly centre-forward has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford at the end of the season, with Jose Mourinho - who is reportedly set to succeed Louis van Gaal - a known admirer of the player.

The presence of both men would certainly breathe some new life into the Premier League...

All eyes will be on Zlatan Ibrahimovic tonight, with the Swede rumoured to be attracting interest from Premier League clubs.

The record-breaking striker is often portrayed as a flat-track bully in the UK, but he'll be quieten his critics at the Etihad tonight.

His performance may, in fact, go a long way towards deciding the outcome of the game.

The first leg at Parc des Princes ended in a 2-2 draw and City have an advantage of two away goals.

Belgium international Kevin De Bruyne gave the lead in the first half, only to be nullified by Zlatan Ibrahimovic's goal three minutes later.

Thereafter, Adrien Rabiot gave PSG the lead in the second half, but they conceded in the 72nd minute after Fernandinho scored the equaliser.
