The Premier League side came into the second leg of the tie with a 5-3 lead, but struggled to cope with the intensity of the hosts.

Monaco finished the first half with a two-goal lead, thanks to Kylian Mbappe and Fabinho.

City came out fighting in the second half and pulled one back through Leroy Sane, after Raheem Sterling’s effort was parried onto his path.

However, Monaco swung the tie back in their favour, with Tiemoue Bakayoko rising highest to head home the crucial goal.

In the other game of the night, Atletico Madrid progressed into the quarter-final despite a goalless draw at home with Bayer Leverkusen, after winning the first leg 4-2 in Germany.
