BREAKING: Real Madrid, Juventus crash out of UEFA Champions League

Guardiola’s men will now head to Portugal for a quarter-final tie with Lyon, who have pulled off an upset by beating much-fancied Juventus on away goals following a 2-2 aggregate draw.

As for Madrid, they have a month’s rest before doing it all over again.

Manchester City are through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a 2-1 victory on the day to seal a 4-2 win on aggregate.

Sterling made the most of a Varane error to give the hosts an early lead and, after Benzema had levelled things up with a good header, Jesus scored a second for the hosts following another Varane howler.

Despite losing the game 2-1, Lyon are through to the quarter-finals on away goals. Depay gave his side an early lead with a penalty, catching Szczesny out with a Panenka after Aouar was fouled by Bernardeschi.null

Ronaldo pulled one back from the spot after Depay’s handball. Ronaldo got his second with a brilliant curling effort, but they couldn’t find the other goal they needed to get through.

Alas, the end of the road…
