Monaco eliminate Manchester City

Monaco/Madrid: Tiemoue Bakayoko's superb header fired Monaco into the Champions League quarter-finals as 3-1 victory condemned Pep Guardiola's Manchester City to a painful exit on away goals.

Nathaniel Clyne has insisted that he is desperate to taste Champions League football next season and he has urged Liverpool to claim the full three points against Manchester City on Sunday to boost their chances of a top four finish.

All three goals City conceded raised questions about their defence, particularly the victor, when Tiemoue Bakayoko was allowed to rise unchallenged to head home Thomas Lemar's free-kick 13 minutes from time.

But Klopp, whose team visit City on Sunday, said the players at Guardiola's disposal were far different, having been in charge of modern-day greats at Barca, and it made it especially hard in Europe.

If City are to have any chance of catching Antonio Conte's men a strong run of form in their next three games is crucial.

"I always feel that in the good moments and bad moments, especially in the bad moments, I realise his reaction".

Manchester City have a mostly fit side, but will be without Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan as they both recover from their long term injuries, according to Physioroom.com.

He said: 'We know we can be hard to play against in games like this. Monaco are flying in the league and in the Champions League, too.

"We all know about the quality of Man City". I'm really looking forward to it because it's a real challenge on the tactical side of the game and two good sides face each other. We weren't there. We wanted to show personality, not to let them think, but they could pass and pass the ball.

Not for the first time this season, Manchester City have been let down by their poor defence. "Sometimes it works. It's about, in this moment, consistency but he is in a really good way".

It was the first time a team coached by Pep Guardiola was knocked out as early as the Champions League last 16.

"In terms of Barcelona and Bayern Munich, when you talk about these kind of teams, it's a big disaster when they don't win".

It would a hammer blow to Guardiola if City were to miss out on qualifying for next season's Champions League. We are thinking to getting better and that is going to happen. "From yesterday we officially started negotiating with different clubs about his future", he told Sky Sports News.

"We will improve but this competition is so demanding", Guardiola, who spoke of his team's lack of experience in dealing with such situations, said. I have said many times I'm so happy working with the guys.
