City go bust in Monte Carlo; Atletico ease through

Manchester City went out of the Champions League after being beaten 3-1 by Monaco at the Stade Louis II – which sent the Principality outfit through on away goals after a 6-6 aggregate draw.

Monaco started in superb fashion when just eight minutes in striking starlet Kylian Mbappe continued his wonderful run of form by turning in Bernardo Silva’s cross from close range.

Just before the half-hour and the tie was levelled on aggregate with Fabinho firing home first-time past Wily Caballero.

Monaco began to sit back in the second-half and after missing a number of chances, City pulled one back to go back ahead on aggregate as German Leroy Sane fired home after Rahem Sterling’s shot was saved.

But the home side saw the tie swing back in their favour when an unmarked Tiemoue Bakayoko headed home a Thomas Lemar free-kick which was enough for Leonardo Jardim’s men to book their place in the last eight.

With City going out, Leicester City are the only English side left in the Champions League.

Atletico Madrid moved into the quarter-finals after a goalless draw with Bayer Leverkusen at the Vicente Calderon.

The draw for the quarter-finals will be made in Nyon on Friday.
