Man City crash out of UEFA Champions League in dramatic fashion


Tottenham Hotspur's Spanish striker Fernando Llorente (L) scores the team's fourth goal during the UEFA Champions League quarter final second leg football match between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, north west England on April 17, 2019. 

Manchester City’s bid for an unprecedented quadruple of trophies ended in dramatic fashion as Tottenham progressed to the Champions League semi-finals on away goals as a pulsating 4-3 win for City on Wednesday was not enough to overturn their 1-0 first leg deficit.

After four goals were shared in the opening 11 minutes, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero put City on course for the last four, but Fernando Llorente’s decisive goal 17 minutes from time was allowed to stand despite a VAR check for handball by the Spaniard.

In a further twist, Sterling then had what would have been an injury time winner ruled out by VAR for an offside.

Tottenham Hotspur will play Ajax in the Semi final.
