Manchester City Out of UEFA Champions League

English giants, Manchester City were on Saturday eliminated from the UEFA Champions League after losing to French side Lyon 3-1 in Lisbon, Portugal.

The Cityzens were favourites to win and proceed to the semi-finals with Bayern Munich until Maxwel Cornet’s first-half strike which put Lyon ahead.

City equalised when Kevin De Bruyne smashed a Sterling cut-back in at the right post from the heart of the box in the second half.

Two late goals from super-sub Moussa Dembele on the counter-attack saw Lyon cancelling out the Belgian international’s equaliser.

Pep Guardiola has never taken Manchester City past the quarter-finals of the Champions League despite dominating the English football since his arrival.

He has been eliminated in each of his three appearances at this stage of the competition with Man City (17-18, 18-19 & 19-20).

His predecessor, Manuel Pellegrini had reached the semi-finals in the 2015-16 season which they lost to Real Madrid.

The teams were meeting for the third time in the UEFA Champions League
