Sagna: Man City to show 'more desire, more passion' at Liverpool

The remaining four spots went to Bayern Munich, Dortmund, Juventus and Leicester.

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

"Falcao out, Glik out". "I always defend Ligue 1. I think it's possible to reverse the tie and we'll do everything to make that happen".

The Portuguese coach has instilled huge belief into this side, which is on course for a domestic treble. "I knew how to do it after the break", said Guardiola after the Champions League exit.

"We have a real team".

Leroy Sanes 71st-minute goal handed City a 6-5 advantage on aggregate, but Bakayoko turned home Thomas Lemars free-kick 13 minutes from time as Monaco claimed a famous win. Their joy only lasted six minutes and the hosts replied with Bakayoko's header from a free kick. But the problem was the first half.

"At this level, you have to play more than 45 minutes", Guardiola said.

Their pace and movement dragged Guardiola's defence all over the place, with Aleksandar Kolarov looking every inch the makeshift centre-half.

Guardiola will play a central role in reshaping City's squad at the end of the season after they crashed out of the Champions League to Monaco this week. All within a few seconds.

"Obviously winning a couple of titles at City, we had some very good players, but as a team this is probably up there as the best team I've played in. They are physically strong and fast in short spaces", he said. "It is hard to explain".

This is the first time in Guardiola's career that he has gone out of the competition at this stage.

The German has attempted to play down the significance of the encounter, however, while insisting that his side will have to "be at their best to get anything" from the game.

Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno also played well to keep Atletico from capitalizing on its chances at the Vicente Calderon Stadium.

Asked whether Monaco should fear a team in the quarter-finals or if they should be feared instead, Jardim replied: "The second option". Back Atletico Madrid to win here at 8/11. "We couldn't get into our dynamic". But City must still step up defensively and, for John Stones, it is going to be a very important occasion.

Firstly, Angel Correa was denied before Koke's low driven shot was turned behind by the German global.

"Luck wasn't on our side". Atletico have only ever been eliminated from the Champions League under Simeone by Real Madrid. We should have done better and deserve to be in the next round. "We have a team with not a lot of experience in these types of competitions". "We can be proud of our performance this evening".

These two sides have averaged the most distance run in the Premier League this season: Liverpool (117.3km per game) and City (114.8km per game).
