Manchester City, Monaco pick up in UCL after breathtaking first leg

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany directs Clichy's attention in training

Guardiola has been criticised for his determination to build on the 5-3 advantage established in the first leg by attacking rather than looking to sit back. The second half we had the chances and we didn't take them and that is why we are out. It seems that Monaco seem to be good at finding striking talent and with the strong association between Arsene Wenger, Arsenal and Monaco, I think the Gunners would be in a better position then most to sign the 18 year old. The Frenchman, who will play no part against the Russian team due to injury, was clearly delighted to see the Ligue 1 leaders triumph against City - as one two-word tweet from him showed.

But Monaco was to have the last say.

Guardiola's charges pushed for a second goal that would see them advance, but Monaco managed to hold out till the full-time to book their spot in the last 16 on the away goals rule.

The three-match series now stands at 0-0 with the second Test set to begin from March 16 at the Basin Reserve in Wellington . Neil Broom comes in at No 4 for the Black Caps in place of the injured Ross Taylor for the match in Wellington .

Pep Guardiola has told Manchester City to kill Monaco with away goals on Wednesday night to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

"We forgot to play in the first half, we forgot to fight as a team, defend as a team and press as a team".

1/10 - In fact, Bayer Leverkusen has lost nine of its last 10 Champions League knockout games (W1), its only win in that run coming against Atletico Madrid (1-0, February 2015). Every single player in the first half under-performed. The goal we conceded from a set-piece broke our tempo, our rhythm and our enthusiasm when we were on top. Why was the second half a problem with the defence? 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.

The loss marks the first time that a Guardiola side have failed to make the last eight of the Champions League.

Centre half John Stones called his team's performance "very sloppy" and accepted that the players had let Guardiola down.

City saw exactly why in the first leg, as the visitors thrilled for the first hour of the contest. I tried, I tried - and I will try again.

"Once that's sorted most of the big sides over the years have won with a solid defence and I'm sure that's what they'll be aiming for this summer". "We wanted to correct that but we weren't clinical enough in both boxes". "We knew they had quality, they are probably the most scoring team in Europe at the minute".
