Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City will take a two-goal advantage to Monaco in the second leg of their last 16 clash in the Champions League after winning 5-3 in a thriller at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night.
The Citizens twice found themselves behind to the Ligue 1 leaders, but a brace from Sergio Aguero, as well as goals from Raheem Sterling, John Stones, and Leroy Sane gives the Premier League outfit the lead heading to the Stade Louis II in a fortnight’s time.
It means that Guardiola is one game closer to extended his record of reaching at the least the semi-finals of the competition in every season he has been a manager, and it also extends City’s recent good run of form, which has seen them win five of their last six games in all competitions.
They are just about still in the title race, trailing leaders Chelsea by eight points with 13 games to go, and they remain in the FA Cup, although will need a replay to get past Huddersfield Town to reach the last eight.
