Full-time: Monaco 3-1 Manchester City

Manchester City are OUT of the Champions League. The Citizens lost out on away goals to Monaco, who rode their luck at times, especially in the second half, but deserved to go through.

Goals from Kylian Mbappe and Fabinho swung the tie in Monaco's favour in the first half. City were dreadful in the opening stages and while they did improve after the break and hit back with Leroy Sane, they were pegged back in naive fashion by Bakayoko.

Guardiola has missed out on the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time in his managerial career, but he can have no complaints. City were made to pay for their woeful first-half display and will have to pick themselves up quickly ahead of their crucial Premier League clash against Liverpool.

That brings to an end our coverage. Have a lovely evening.

Dirar makes way for Germain as Jardim rolls the dice for a final time. City have just three minutes of stoppage time to save themselves

Monaco are trying to shut the game down and win niggly fouls. Silva tries to switch the play but his pass is cut out by Moutinho.

After all the attacking play this match-up has given us, City look to be going out with a bit of a whimper.

City pressing to swing the tie in their favour but Monaco are defending stoutly. Iheanacho replaces Clichy as Guardiola goes for the jugular. Not long left to go.

Monaco make a change as Kylian Mbappe, who has been ineffective in the second half, makes way for the experienced Joao Moutinho.

Lemar's excellent delivery finds Bakayoko, who heads the ball excellently past Caballero from the penalty spot. City have been made to pay for their profligacy and their silly high line which allowed Lemar to whip in a delicious ball. Strap yourselves in, folks, the last 12 minutes will be very interesting.

GOAL! Monaco 3-1 Manchester City (Bakayoko)

De Bruyne risks a second yellow with a clumsy challenge on Fabinho. Monaco starting to assert themselves for the first time in the second half.

Sterling has been booked for a cynical foul on Sterling. If City progress, he will miss the first leg of the quarter-final. Looked a bit harsh for me, Clive.

Totally deserved.

De Bruyne sweeps a ball out to Sterling, he drives past Mendy and stings the palms of Subasic, who can only palm the ball into the path of Sane, who fires the ball into the roof of the net from close range. 2-1, City going through as it stands.

GOAL! Monaco 2-1 Manchester City (Sane)

Aguero causing problems once again but Subasic is out to save the day. Monaco make an enforced change as the injured Raggi is replaced by 20-year-old Almamy Traore.

20 minutes to go.

Huge gaps appearing in Monaco's defence now. Silva manages to exploit those gaps and finds the onrushing Sane, who fails to capitalise on Subasic's rash decision to come out and places the ball into the side netting.

Aguero misses another golden oppoirtunity! Silva is set free by Fernandinho and manages to nip away from Raggi and tee up Aguero, but his effort is blocked by Subasic.

Another big, big chance wasted by Aguero.

Fernandinho and De Bruyne constantly trying to set Sterling free over the top but are not reaping rewards as of yet. All Manchester City this half, Monaco have caved in a touch.

Aguero misses a huge opportunity after some simply excellent work from Sane. The German glides past Raggi majestically and fires a ball at Aguero, who can't direct it between the sticks. How crucial could that prove to be?

Bakayoko has been cautioned for a high foot and will now miss the first leg of the quarter-final, should Monaco progress.

Raggi makes his second vital interception of the match as he cuts out Sterling's pass to Aguero. The Argentine was set to pull the trigger but in truth he was let down by the ball fed to him by Sterling.

De Bruyne has just picked up a yellow card for inhibiting Fabinho as he drove forward.

Silva almost latches on to Clichy's deft pass but Subasic is out in a flash to quell any danger. The Croatian picked up a knock for his troubles but should be fine to carry on.

Better from City, this.

City have been afforded more space by Monaco in this second half but they aren't really testing the hosts. Fernandinho tries to dart through but is blocked off by the wondrous Fabinho.

Teams are back out and we are ready for the second half. City have 45 minutes to save their European dream.

Make of that what you will.

At the Vicente Calderon it's 0-0 between Atletico Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen.

Simeone's men coasting through to the last eight, it seems.

Half-time: Monaco 2-0 Manchester City

Sublime from Monaco, woeful from Manchester City. The hosts have had all the chances and deservedly lead thanks to goals from Kylian Mbappe and Fabinho, who has strolled about like a classy goliath in the centre of midfield.

Guardiola's men have been second best in all areas and are yet to have a shot. So much for the spellbinding end-to-end excitement of the first leg, it's been one-way traffic at the Stade Louis II.

City have work to do, their Champions League dream is teetering on the edge.

City try to conjure up something before half-time but Sterling's touch is poor.

Not long to go until half-time now. It can't come soon enough for City, who have been nullified superbly by Monaco.

The hosts have dealt with everything thrown at them so far, though that hasn't been very much, and look as dangerous as ever going forward.

Referee Gianluca Rocchi willing to let the game flow it seems. Suits Monaco down to the ground at the moment.

Bernardo Silva starting to turn on the style now. He flicks a ball into the path of Germain but nothing comes of it.

Lemar's delivery from dead balls is sensational, Caballero has just had to beat out a teasing cross from almost under his own bar.

Nothing from Manchester City in the way of a fightback at the moment. Disappointingly one-way traffic, not the end-to-end spectacle many had hoped it would be.

It's advantage Monaco!

Mendy, who has been Monaco's most effective player this evening, darts down the left channel and lasers in a simply excellent low cross into Fabinho's path. The versatile Brazilian, like Mbappe, couldn't really miss.

Sublime from Monaco, but it's panic stations for City now.

GOAL! Monaco 2-0 Manchester City (Fabinho)

City yet to have a shot on target so far. Guardiola understandably an animated figure on the touchline.

Monaco have started brightly and are fully on top. Can they continue the onslaught?

Mendy bursts forward once again and wins a corner off Stones. Lemar takes the kick but Clichy manages to clear the danger.

Monaco probe once again and win another corner out of Kolarov but Clichy manages to quell the danger once more. Better defensively from City.

A rare foray forward for City comes to nothing as De Bruyne's pass goes astray. Guardiola cutting a very frustrated figure on the touchline at the moment, understandably.

Fabinho et al are always trying the low pass through to Mbappe. Stones does well to cut it out on this occasion.

Monaco win the ball high up and City invite Germain to have a shot, but his effort does not test Caballero.

Mbappe has the ball in the net again but he is adjudged offside. The 18-year-old is full of promise and has the City defence terrified tonight. Quite incredible really.

Fernandinho, who would miss the next match if he picks up a yellow card, hacks down Fabinho. Lemar whips in the resulting free-kick which goes straight into the hands of Caballero.

Sagna then picks up a booking after going in late on Bernardo Silva. City camped in their own half at the moment.

Game very much on!

Mendy escapes the attentions of Sane and Aguero as he drives into the penalty area but he is stopped in his tracks by Stones. The ball only goes as far as Silva, who rifles a ball into the six-yard box. Mbappe simply couldn't miss. What a start!

GOAL! Monaco 1-0 Manchester City (Mbappe)

City trying to nullify any early Monaco threat by playing it calmly around their backline. They eventually work the ball up the right channel but nobody was able to connect with De Bruyne's cross.

Subasic immediately sends a long punt up field that Mbappe almost latches on to, but Caballero manages to gather the ball. Stones didn't know where the young Frenchman was then.


At the second time of asking, due to the pressure of the ball, Kylian Mbappe gets us under way.

Quick recap of the teams. We're about to get under way in France. The referee for tonight's clash is Gianluca Rocchi.

Manchester City: Caballero, Sagna, Stones, Kolarov, Clichy, Fernandinho, Sterling, Silva (C), De Bruyne, Sané, Agüero.

Monaco: Subasic; Sidibé, Raggi, Jemerson, Mendy; Bernardo, Fabinho, Bakayoko, Lemar; Germain, Mbappé.

The teams are primed and ready in the tunnel. Kick-off just moments away.

Think that's a beat most of us can dance to...

"We're going to try to attack and avoid their strength points like the counterattack."

Easier said than done, Pep...

Ahh. Can't find a picture of Monaco's training ground that does it justice. Google it, you won't regret it.

Just over 20 minutes until kick-off in the Principality. Monaco's stadium may be a bit of an eyesore, but the same can't be said of their training base...

Monaco are two goals down as it stands, but they have been able to call on their powers of recovery before. Will they be able to turn things around at the Stade Louis II?

Another Champions League milestone for another highly influential Spaniard at City...

Quite an achievement from the diminutive Spaniard.

Interesting little titbit regarding Falcao...

Falcao is OUT, Monaco have confirmed. A real boost for Manchester City, but the Principality outfit are still more than capable of causing their backline a few problems.

The Colombian's replacement, Valere Germain, has scored nine times in 22 league starts this season.


Monaco: Subasic; Sidibé, Raggi, Jemerson, Mendy; Bernardo, Fabinho, Bakayoko, Lemar; Germain, Mbappé.

The Monaco players have arrived, hopefully their team news will follow suit shortly.


Bayer Leverkusen: Leno, Hilbert, Dragovic, Jedvaij, Wendell, Baumgartlinger, Brandt, Kampl, Bellarabi, Chicharito, Volland.

Reports suggest that Falcao has failed to overcome a hip injury and will not feature tonight. A shame after he produced such a fantastic display in the first leg.

How big a blow is that for Monaco? The able Germain will presumably step up.



Atletico Madrid: Oblak, Vrsaljko, Godin, Gimenez, Lucas, Koke, Saul, Thomas, Carrasco, Griezmann, Correa.

A first start for promising young midfielder Thomas Partey.

Substitutes: Bravo, Zabaleta, Navas, Delph, Otamendi, Yaya Touré, Iheanacho.


Manchester City: Caballero, Sagna, Stones, Kolarov, Clichy, Fernandinho, Sterling, Silva (C), De Bruyne, Sané, Agüero.

On the subject of Pep's impressive European record, the Manchester City boss is already dreaming of winning the trophy with the big ears at the end of the season.

Guardiola has won the European Cup on three occasions - twice as a player, once as a coach - and is eager to taste Champions League success once again.

"Can we win it? I don't know," said Guardiola. "I would like to think about it or say yes, but I don't know.

"It's my eighth year as a coach and I know how complicated the competition is -- set pieces and free kicks, losing five minutes of concentration and you're out. But you can be sure that we are going to try. This season? Absolutely."

Pep Guardiola praises team after win

Pep Guardiola's a dab hand at making it to the latter stages of the Champions League. Will his impressive record be tarnished tonight?

Good evening and welcome to IB Times UK's live Champions League coverage of Monaco vs Manchester City and Atletico Madrid vs Bayer Leverkusen.

If the clash between Monaco and City is anything like the first leg at the Etihad Stadium a few weeks ago, we are in for a treat. Eight goals were shared between Leonardo Jardim and Pep Guardiola's men, as was a l'aissez faire attitude to defending.

The game at the Vicente Calderon looks like a foregone conclusion, though many said that about Barcelona's second leg against Paris Saint-Germain last week. Can Bayer Leverkusen add another incredible story to this year's frankly bizarre Champions League edition and knock last year's finalists Atletico out?

Stay right here to find out.
