Manchester City have been knocked out at the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League this season after a 3-1 second leg loss at Monaco. The aggregate score finished with a 6-6 tie, but the Frenchmen go through thanks to three away goals in the first leg.

FIRST HALF

Monaco were absolutely sensational, with insane pressure and constant attacks. City made horrible mistakes at the back and paid for it when Kylian Mbappé and Fabinho put the hosts in position to advance with a 2-0 result. The Citizens couldn't produce a shot on target in the first half, and needed much better football to find the goal and go through.

SECOND HALF

The final period was great from City, who took control of the ball and began to create chance after chance; unfortunately Sergio Agüero wasn't at his best and missed three incredible opportunities in front of goal, and it became clear that City could regret those missed chances.

Leroy Sané scored a massive goal that would have been enough for the Sky Blues, but Tiémoué Bakayoko headed in a free kick and gave Monaco a definitive 3-1 win that was good enough for them to knock City out. The defense was horrible in both legs, and the missed chances in the second half of the second leg all contributed to a really disappointing European exit for City.
