The Champions League adventure is over for Manchester City as Real Madrid ultimately eased into the final.

It would have be nice to have a British side make it to Milan but, I don't know about you,I am quite looking forward to seeing Diego Simeone and Zinedine Zidane locking horns.

The lights not out on British teams in Europe just yet, with Liverpool bidding to reach the Europa League final tomorrow.

Will they do it? Join us again tomorrow to find out. Cheerio.

"It's no disgrace at all, losing to Real Madrid, it’s just the manner of the defeat. People were expecting more energy, more creativity and tempo in their performance. Manchester City should have asked Madrid the questions they don’t get asked in La Liga."

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale, speaking to BT Sport: "It doesn’t matter who scores or whether it's an own goal or not. The main thing is we have a chance to win the Champions League again. 

"I felt we were close to killing the game off but couldn’t get clear cut chances. 

"The reason I came to Real Madrid was to win Champions Leagues. I've got one already and I have got another chance to win another. 

"I feel like I am maturing. My Spanish is getting better and I'm integrating more with the team. I feel like I have turned a corner in that sense and I'm enjoying my football here."

Jonathan Cowley: Absolutely gutted. We haven't done ourselves justice at all. Lacked urgency and intensity all night. Opportunity missed.

Liz Tray: That was a limp exit. We created very little over three hours. Gave the ball away far too much. Just a shrug of a departure.

Mohammed Zakari: Real Madrid have gotten themselves their very own Pep Guardiola. Congrats Zizu, well deserved.

"Manchester City basically had two chances, one was from 18 yards out and the other from about 25 yards out. They just let Madrid play their game, knock the ball around. The home side controlled the game. None of Manuel Pellegrini's side showed any pace, any legs, or any tempo."

Regrets? I have none...

Back to the Premier League for Manchester City and it is all about securing a top-four finish ahead of Pep Guardiola's arrival.

They are four points clear of fifth-place Manchester City with two games left to play - at home to Arsenal and away to Swansea. 

Manchester United have three games left against Norwich (a), West Ham (a) and Bournemouth (h).

You've got to fancy City to get the job done, but imagine Guardiola in the Europa League next season...

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo, speaking to BT Sport: "We are happy because we are in the final and it is special. One-nil is a short result but we were the better side. I have not competed for 15 days but people forget I recover quickly. I'm tired but really happy."

James Harden: City didn't look like they wanted it. The fact Ronaldo seemed to have more attempts than the whole City team speaks for itself.

Russell Higginbotham: Man City missed Silva tonight. Gutted that they didn't give it a real go. Better to go down fighting than with a whimper.

Mike Giverin: It's not the fact we lost, it's just how boring, slow and awful we were that hurts.

"Vincent Kompany's had problems with his calves for a long time, and maybe he needs three or four months out to recover properly. That's football. I'd rather lose him for that long and have him fit for the next four or five years.

"The club may say different but I think they want him to play so badly that once he feels a bit good he puts his hand up for selection when he's not 100%."

More from Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart, speaking to BT Sport: "Real couldn't kill us off. We defended well when needed. We just didn’t have that little bit more. 

"I don’t think we can be bothered by criticism. It is what it is. We turn up to win every game."

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini, speaking to BT Sport: "I am disappointed because I think that was a very close game with two teams who did not create many chances. The two teams were working with no-one making a difference.

"It is not the best thing changing a defender very early but I don't think we had any problems in defence, we had problems creating, same as Real Madrid. They did not create many chances.

"We worked the game very well. During whole game we tried to make some difference."  

Any regrets...?

"I felt sorry for Sergio Aguero, he never really got one-on-one with the centre-halves. He got lost, got hustled, and he got frustrated. He almost ended up in midfield. He had a very quiet two games. The only effort he had tonight was that late one that went just over the bar."

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart, speaking to BT Sport: "We could easily be in the final but they managed the game well. They got a very lucky goal but it is what it is. 

"We just did not have that little bit more. Aguero announced himself in the 88th minute, it was a good effort, but did we do enough over the two games? I don't know."

Even the Real Madrid players looked a bit guilty about celebrating that win. They barely broke a sweat.

Work to do for Pep Guardiola?

Hussain, Oldham: Spanish football making a statement. Atletico and Real final...again.  

Lucas, London: Still no Spanish side has been knocked out by a non-Spanish team in the knockouts of both Euro competitions, potentially a third straight year of Spanish teams winning both trophies and still potential for two all Spanish finals, this is a Spanish golden era.

Man City fetch their coats, show themselves to the door and politely close it behind them. What a bland way to duck out.

"Joe Hart kept Man City in it over the two legs and tonight they had nothing to lose - score the first goal and you win the tie basically - but they passed short and square. Aguero was shackled and there was nothing going forward. They were looking for creativity but found nothing."

Champions League

Real Madrid will meet Atletico Madrid in the Champions League final in Milan on 28 May.

Manchester City, meanwhile, head off to lick their wounds and focus on wrapping up a top-four finish. Although it looked like their focus was already on that for much of that game.
