Manchester City were eliminated from the Champions League last-16 stage on Wednesday night as AS Monaco beat them 3-1 in the second leg to progress to the quarterfinals of the premier European event.

City had won the first leg at The Etihad by a 5-3 margin and were hoping to make it to the quarterfinals as they travelled to France. However, their hope did not last too long as Kylian Mbappe opened the scoring, 7 minutes into the game. Boom!

Monaco doubled their lead through Fabinho, who popped up inside the box to slot home a low cross from Benjamin Mendy. It was virtually over. However, after being invisible for 70 minutes, City did manage to pull one back and go ahead on aggregate. However, it did not last too long, as Monaco made full use of a set-piece routine and scored the 3rd and decisive goal. It was Bakayoko who headed the ball home and Monaco looked assured of kicking City out of Champions League.

The aftermath was horrible for Manchester City and their fans as Pep’s side were so confident of progressing to the quarterfinals after their first leg victory over the French club.

It is always a great feeling to watch the rivals suffer defeats, isn’t it? And Twitteratis rejoiced City’s exit from Champions League, much to United fans’ delight.

Here are few hilarious responses from Twitter, to City’s exit from Champions League.

This burn though!

It looks like it will take centuries for Manchester City to reach the levels of the mighty Red Devils. Until then, mind the gap!
