UK: TV: BT Sport 2. We saw last week - albeit on a different scale - the impact that a first-leg deficit or advantage can have on the way a team approaches a game when Barcelona staged their remarkable comeback against PSG.

However, as their almost-cavalier approach proved in the first leg, all-out attack does leave them exposed and against a City side not short of firepower, that wouldn't be the wisest decision.

Pep Guardiola's 100th game in Europe as a manager ended in defeat as Monaco knocked Manchester City out of the Champions League with a 3-1 win (6-6 aggregate victory on away goals). "It is also important to defend better than in the first leg".

Mbappe's electrifying pace posed a constant threat for City, but the Premier League side gradually began to pose Monaco problems as well although Raheem Sterling's hesitancy allowed the hosts to clear as the England winger looked to tee up Sergio Aguero.

Captain Vincent Kompany will hope to feature for only the second time since November.

The other match is between Atletico Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen at the Vicente Calderon. However, Jemerson is available again after he missed out on the first match through his own suspension and is likely to come into the starting eleven alongside Andrea Raggi.

It was a game of two halves as Monaco totally bossed the first half and went 1-0 up on eight minutes through exciting youngster Kylian Mbappe, who tapped in Bernardo Silva's low cross.

Manchester City have never lost to French opposition in European competition (W2 D2).

Super Stat: Monaco have scored a mind-boggling 84 goals in Ligue 1 this season, the highest by any club across the five top leagues in Europe!

City struggled to gain possession, made little use of the ball they did get and failed to repel Monaco's continual raids.

Since their defeat at Manchester, Monaco have gone on to win four straight, and now sit atop the French Ligue 1, three points clear of Paris Saint-Germain.

There were 10 yellow cards handed out in the 1st leg at the Etihad Stadium; the most in a Champions League game this season.

In February, Manchester City and Monaco played what was, up until that point, the best match of the entire Champions League.
