"Sorry?!"... Pep discovers from reporter Fernandinho is leaving

Manchester City survived a bruising encounter with Atletico Madrid to reach the Champions League semi-finals after a hard-fought goalless draw in the Spanish capital.

Pep Guardiola’s side battled an intimidating atmosphere and a fired-up home side at the Wanda Metropolitano to edge a tense quarter-final courtesy of last week’s equally-draining 1-0 first-leg win.

Atletico finished with 10 men as Felipe – who escaped a booking for a terrible challenge on Phil Foden in the first half – was sent off as home frustrations boiled over in the closing stages.

City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan went close to scoring when he hit the post in the first half but the visitors had to dig deep late on. Atletico upped the tempo in the closing stages and there were some moments of alarm, not least when Antoine Griezmann shot narrowly wide and Angel Correa tested Ederson in stoppage time.

Awaiting Man City are Real Madrid who knocked out Chelsea 5-4 on aggregate after a fantastic match at the Santiago Bernabeu last night.

All the action as it happened from Atletico vs Man City in the Champions League quarter-finals:

The police have gone down the tunnel now. It was mayhem at the end there. Can’t lie, after 85 minutes of rather turgid football, that was scenes at the end.

Would have been fascinating if Atletico had scored just to see what would have happened.

Remember: this is what made Atletico a great team. They’re not just going to stop those antics because some English football fans disagree with it.

Manchester City are through to the semi-finals of the Champions League after an ugly war at the Wanda Metropolitano.

A quite remarkable end as Atletico Madrid showed the very worst of what they’re about.

But City are through. That’s the headline.

90+10 mins: Fernandinho is down no off the ball. Savic is also down with cramp.

Simeone has run onto the pitch to confront his own player Savic! His head has totally gone and it’s utter chaos.

90+8 mins: Carrasco whips the ball in with pace and Ederson dives to put a strong punch on it! Really good goalkeeping.

Simeone is then orchestrating the crowd by applauding their noise. The atmosphere is quite remarkable all of a sudden!

Atletico Madrid 0-0 (0-1 agg) Manchester City

90+7 mins: The Atletico Madrid technical area is FILLED with staff and players. This is a truly chaotic atmosphere.

Oh and here’s a chance! Carrasco chops inside from the left-hand touchline and is fouled JUST outside the area by Cancelo.

A last opportunity to fizz a ball into the area.

Atletico Madrid 0-0 (0-1 agg) Manchester City

90+6 mins: Chance for City! Sterling slides Gundogan in but Oblak denies him with his legs!

Then Foden goes in the book for a late challenge. It’s hard to keep up at the end of this game!
