Manchester City’s woes continued last night as they crashed out of the Champions League quarter-finals after losing to Liverpool 2-1 in their second-leg knockout clash at the Etihad. City could not have made a better start with Jesus scoring after only two minutes but like against United at the weekend they were unable to build on their first half lead and this was enough to allow Liverpool back in to the game early in the second half. Star man and top-scorer Salah levelled proceedings after 56 minutes and while City continued to swarm forward in hopes of rescuing the tie or some semblance of pride, they left more and more space at the back. Liverpool took full advantage of this when Firminho bagged the winner with about a quarter of an hour remaining and the tie ended 5-1 on aggregate

The biggest shock of the night in the Champions League was not in Manchester, but Rome, Italy, as Roma master minded one of the great Champions League come backs against Spanish giants Barcelona at the Stadio Olimpico. The Italian giants were 4-1 down from the first leg and knew they had to win by scoring at least three goals without reply, and this is exactly what they proceeded to do winning 3-0 on the night, which levelled the tie at 4-4 on aggregate and sent Barcelona packing on the away goals rule.
