Will there be big changes at the Etihad this summer? Is there anyone out there who could do a better job?

We will have to wait and see. That's a wrap for us for the night. See you tomorrow for Everton's European foray...

Barcelona 1-0 Man City (Agg: 3-1)

Chris Waddle

BBC Radio 5 live

"Who recruits Manchester City's players? What do they look for to make Manchester City serious Champions League contenders?

"I like watching City but at Champions League level they are so lacking.

"Have they got a team geared to win the Premier League? They are a physical side rather than a technical side. I think with the Champions League you need more than a physical presence."

Pellegrini speculation

"I think Manuel Pellegrini's time will be up. Would Diego Simeone leave Atletico Madrid or Carlo Ancelotti leave Real Madrid? That's the kind of manager I would look at for City."

Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp: "We were too harmless. If you don't shoot on goal, you can't score.

"Every minute the opponent gained in confidence and we ended up having none. Juve were simply better than us, but they also had the perfect start after three minutes."

Barcelona 1-0 Man City (Agg: 3-1)

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini on whether he needs to make changes to his squad: "We will see about that in the right moment."

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini on speculation about his own future: "It's not a distraction. I never worry about me so it's not a distraction."

"I think there are too many excuses going around for Manchester City. They have to do better than they have done, surely?

"It would have been nice to see some of them trying a bit harder in terms of work-rate and desire.

"I think City have got to make some drastic changes.

"Vincent Kompany has been the best defender for the last three years and needs a regular partner. Would you get rid of Kompany and have a completely fresh start? I don't know.

"He needs to get his head right. His performances have been so poor by his standards.

"Yaya Toure has been taken off in consecutive games. What's his future?"

City restricted?

Barcelona 1-0 Man City (Agg: 3-1)

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini: "All of us wanted to continue, we need to improve in Europe and maybe in the last two years we did improve. We have gone through to the last 16 and we were very unlucky we played against Barcelona, but at least we qualified [for the knockout stages].

"I also think it was not our best year to continue in Europe because of [Financial Fair Play] restrictions with the amount of players and money so it was difficult in that sense."

Ah, the giddy days of 2008. Nine Premier League teams have made it to the final of the Champions League since 1999, but who will be the next one?

Barcelona 1-0 Man City (Agg: 3-1)

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini on whether he played the right tactics: "We have had four games against Barca and we played with four different formations so [the tactics] were not a problem, it was the performance."

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini: "I think we lost against a better team without doubt. Lionel Messi is very difficult to contain. Maybe we didn't play so well in the first half but we improved in the second and we took risks.

"We needed to score two goals and we thought it might happen had we scored the penalty. That was a very important moment because we had 15 minutes more to play ."

"So for 2nd time in 3 seasons, no PL clubs in last 8 of CL. Why? No winter break? FFP hit PL harder than Spa/Ger with more homegrown players or just cyclical maybe? One thing certain; £5bn TV deal mean PL will feel ready to finally compete with RM/Barca for very best talent."

Football League round-up

The final whistles have blown on our three Football League matches.

In the Championship, Nottingham Forest closed to within eight points of the play-off places with a

2-0 victory over Rotherham, brilliant strikes by Dexter Blackstock and Michail Antonio proving the difference.

At Craven Cottage, Leeds made it five away win from six as goals from Sam Byram, Sol Bamba and Mirco Antenucci condemned

Fulham to a 3-0 defeat. Kostas Stafylidis was dismissed for two cautions for Fulham, who now have just one win in 13.

Burton now lead the way by five points in League Two after an impressive

2-1 win over Southend. The hosts were losing 1-0 to a Barry Corr goal and down to 10 men after Robbie Weir's red card, but Matt Palmer levelled early in the second half before Abdenasser El Khayati popped up with an 89th-minute winner.

Barcelona 1-0 Man City (Agg: 3-1)

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says the penalty miss was a key moment but he also says that it is very hard to play against Barcelona at the moment. Full reaction to come.

It's five years to the day since Fulham beat Juventus 4-1 in a magic Europa League comeback. They could be heading to League One at the moment...

"Joe Hart had a great game, but we were good too and we deserved to win. Now we have to enjoy our win and rest well."

MOTD presenter Gary Lineker: But for a truly astonishing display of goalkeeping from Joe Hart, our Premier League champions would be going home humiliated.

MOTD commentator Guy Mowbray: Real Madrid want De Gea - & Barcelona might want Hart after that. Mind you, he wouldn't get to shine like that often in their goal.

BBC Radio 5 live commentator Conor McNamara: Joe Hart. Best goalkeeping performance since Captain Robert Hatch (pictured).

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart on Sky Sports: "We've gone out to a magnificent side for the second time in two years. They will get a lot of plaudits but we had a big chance with the penalty. We hung in there and didn't take it.

"It's unfortunate that I saved a penalty from Lionel Messi and it didn't count in the end. I'm in there to make saves and they hit me a lot of times tonight. I was busy, it was definitely busy! I just tried to smother them, they are always looking for a pass and you have to try and make them rush. I don't know how Neymar's chance stayed out at the start."

Midfielder James Milner: "Joe Hart was incredible. He's shown what a great goalkeeper he is. It could have been out of sight but he was amazing tonight. We didn't show our best over booth legs for long enough."

"There's not a lot of pace in that side. Aguero is a threat but they (City) are a team of plodders, in a way. The higher you go you need to have that variation."

Joe Hart made 10 saves in that game. Barca had 23 efforts on goal, while City managed 15. A great game.

Lionel Messi is the latest Barca attacker to embrace Joe Hart. If Cristiano Ronaldo ends up as the all-time record Champions League goalscorer, he'll owe Hart a pint or two.

You'll never beat Joe Hart! Neymar is denied yet again, and again Barca were clean through on goal. Luis Suarez comes over to shake hands with Hart, a huge smile on both of their faces.

TWO MINUTES added on. The best goalkeeping performance ever? I don't know about that - but without Joe Hart it would have been four or maybe five, six nil...

That is an amazing stop! Barcelona break away, they have four-on-two! Neymar is in, he squares it to Lionel Messi, he spins away from Bacary Sagna and surely will score - but Joe Hart again somehow appears to make the stop! That's the best of the lot.

Messi was only six yards out.
