    Full time: AS Monaco 3 – 1 Manchester City

    Aggregate score: AS Monaco 6 – 6 Manchester City – AS Monaco progress on away goals.

    AS Monaco started off on the front foot, controlling the game all over the pitch and not allowing Manchester City to string together passes before getting to them.

    They were rewarded for their early dominance, with Kylian Mpabbe Lottin finding the net in the eighth minute to put City’s aggregate lead under pressure early.

    Monaco continued to press, ensuring their opponents did not have any time on the ball when they got possession. Manchester City were wasteful when did they did manage to get out of their own half.

    The home side were once again rewarded for their dominance, with Fabinho scoring to equalise the game on aggregate and put Monaco in position to qualify.

    The second half saw Manchester City come out quickly, as they looked to up their intensity.

    Monaco slowed down and played more defensive football, as City continued to knock on the door via Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero.

    Eventually they found the key, as Lery Sane was there to hit Sterling’s parried shot into the top of an empty net to put City back in a qualifying position.

    City’s lead lasted all of six minutes, as Tiemoue Bakayoko’s header put Monaco ahead by two goals once again, and into a qualifying position on aggregate.

    That would be the last twist in the tale, as Monaco completed the comeback to book a spot in the quarter-finals.

    The final score in Monaco, AS Monaco three, Manchester City one. AS Monaco go through to the next stage of the Champions League on aggregate due to the away goals rule.

    Match preview

    AS Monaco need a two-goal win against Manchester City if they are to progress to the next stage of the Champions League. Join The Roar from 6:45am (AEDT) for live scores and commentary.

    It will be just the second ever time that AS Monaco and Manchester City compete in a competitive fixture, with the first match producing plenty of fireworks.

    Manchester City were forced to come back from 2-1 and 3-2 down, before running away with the game in the last 15 minutes to earn a stunning 5-3 win at the Etihad.

    Further, the game produced a staggering ten yellow cards, the most in any Champions League game this season.

    While City have a two-goal advantage going into the second leg, Monaco scored three away goals, which could prove crucial should they get a two-goal win – unless City also score three.

    Since their defeat at Manchester, Monaco have gone on to win four straight, and currently sit atop the French Ligue 1, three points clear of Paris Saint-Germain.

    The Citizens have also been in good form, however their earlier inconsistencies seem to have put the Premier League title out of reach.

    Historically, Monaco have progressed in all three of their knockout fixtures against English clubs, however Manchester City have never lost to a French side in European competition.

    Home-ground advantage should pay dividends for the French side. Expect Monaco to end their Champions League campaign with a win.

    AS Monaco 2 – 1 Manchester City

        Will they play extra time ? Or play on away goals ?

          Hi Planko!

          In the event of a draw, whoever scored the most goals away from home progresses. In this case, Monaco scored three, so even though the aggregate score was 6-all, AS Monaco scored two more goals AWAY from home than City.

          Extra time would have happened if the aggregate score was even, and so was the away goals.
