Pep Guardiola: 'Antonio Mateu Lahoz is a special guy'

Trailing 3-0 from the first-leg City manager Pep Guardiola had said his team needed to produce a "perfect game" at the Etihad Stadium if it was to achieve a famous comeback and for 45 minutes it was not far off that level.

"Liverpool will not be scared of anyone left in the Champions League but the team I think they would prefer to avoid in the semi-finals is Real Madrid." .

While they have also played some brilliant football in all those matches, there is no doubt this week has taken some of the shine off a wonderful season which, sooner or later, will result in the English league title. It's unclear what Guardiola said, but it was enough for him to have been sent off at halftime of Liverpool's massive win.

"I was today with my chairman".

"I think Liverpool would beat them over two legs". That sparked angry protests from City and manager Guardiola was sent to the stand for his reaction after the half-time whistle.

Perhaps that was the hint Liverpool needed to recover their confidence and whatever Klopp said to his team at half-time, there was another distinct shift which became obvious as soon as the second-half started.

Jereima "Jeri" Bustamante died Sunday night, the evening before Scott announced he is running for US Senate. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) that has major implications for control of the Senate next year.

"We would have liked to win the Premier League in the last game (against United) and it was our dream to get through to the (Champions League) semi-finals".

Salah compounded City's frustrations with a simple finish 56 minutes in, becoming the first Liverpool player to score eight times in a single Champions League or European Cup season, and Firmino pounced on a Nicolas Otamendi error to seal their passage to the last four and match his team-mate's record tally.

City were angered when Sane had his strike chalked off shortly before the interval for offside when replays showed the ball had been played to him by Liverpool's James Milner. He likes to be different, he likes to be special. when everybody sees the things, he's going to decide the opposite. That's why he sent me off. Barcelona struggled under a barrage of crosses and set-pieces, with first-leg own-goal villains Daniele De Rossi and Kostas Manolas completing the job from a penalty and a corner respectively. "The goal from Gabriel Jesus in Anfield was a goal, not offside".

City, backed by a vociferous home crowd, laid siege to the Liverpool goal in search of a second and were inches away when Bernardo Silva blasted an effort off the left-hand post.

"To recover three goals is not easy".

"We had many draws and they took us out of the first place".
