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

Sergio Aguero, the City striker, scored two goals in the first leg against Monaco on February 21 and has scored a total of five goals in the Champions League this season.

"We are playing very well at the moment and we have a team that plays mostly attractive games and sometimes the pundits are waiting to analyse", Toure added of the Monaco clash.

"Here, has to be the game", Guardiola said, tapping his forehead twice to underline what his players need to bear in mind. And the French side got it. Tiemoue Bakayoko scored the deciding goal 13 minutes from time with a delicious header, beating Willy Caballero at the front post. Just look at the replies to his tweet.

Owning a 5-3 advantage in hand, Manchester City did not play conservatively in an attack-oriented matchup against Monaco, who had tallied 123 goals coming into the match.

"I want to see a team daring from the first minute to win the game".

City became the first team in Champions League history to be eliminated in a knockout tie after scoring five goals in the first leg. "We did show passion in the second half but it is not enough".

"Normally we play to a good level but here we didn't". He has said his maiden City season will be a failure if he can not deliver a trophy, but barring a dramatic Chelsea collapse in the Premier League, the Spaniard's only realistic hope of silverware is now the FA Cup.

"We were able to score three goals in the first leg".

Guardiola played down his seven consecutive semi-final appearances (with Barcelona and Bayern Munich), instead stated he is focused in making sure City overcome Monaco and progress into the last eight of this year's Champions League.

Two goals in the first half did the majority of the damage as City bowed out of the competition on the away goals rule following a second leg 3-1 defeat on the night, which equated a 6-6 scoreline on aggregate.

"I think we can reach the final, but of course the other teams will think the same and that doesn't make it easier", he said. We have to admit that the German side didn't have any luck because they had several situations where they missed.

After the game, the best player of Atletico Madrid, Antoine Griezmann said that his teammate is the best goalkeeper in the world. "We forgot to do that in the first half".
