Tiemoue Bakayoko 77th minute goal dumped Manchester City out of the Champions League as a swashbuckling Monaco progressed to the quarter-finals on the away-goals rule thanks to a 3-1 win at the Stade Louis II.
Leroy Sane looked to have saved the day with a late goal that briefly put the Blues back in front on aggregate, but the hosts rallied to score a third five minutes later to tie the overall score at 6-6 – enough to progress to the last eight on the away goals rule.
Teen sensation Kylian Mbappe spearheaded Monaco’s charge from kick-off, the striker’s 11th goal in his past 11 starts coming after eight minutes and Fabinho added a nicely worked second.
Leroy Sane broke clear in the 71st minute and slam the ball high into the roof of the net to give City the lead 6-5 on aggregate.
However, an undulating tie had one final twist as Bakayoko pounced, leaving the FA Cup as the only route to silverware realistically still open to Guardiola in his maiden season.
