Match Highlights View More Below

Ten-man City went out of the Champions League with their heads held high after more than matching Barcelona at the Nou Camp – but ultimately leaving the competition for this season.

Denied perhaps two penalties and reduced to ten men, the Blues proved that in football, you don’t always get what you deserve as the Catalans secured an injury time winner to edge home 2-1 in enthralling second leg.

This was a game where City simply had to gamble. With no lead to defend and a 2-0 deficit to claw back, Manuel Pellegrini’s team selection demanded a starting XI packed with attacking options.

The left-sided combination of Gael Clichy and Aleksandar Kolarov from the first leg was ditched as City reverted to a more familiar formation 4-2-3-1 with the only surprise - albeit a welcome one - was James Milner’s return to the side.
