'I sympathise with Guardiola'

Man City 1-2 Liverpool 1-5 agg

Henry Winter

Chief Football Writer for the Times on BBC Radio 5 Live

Guardiola is a very intense driven individual and he will be at the training group first thing tomorrow morning and looking at what happened, why Otamendi has run out of steam because he is making major mistakes at the back. He will analyse this.

I do have some sympathy with Pep, UEFA have these Harry Potters with wands behind the goals and UEFA don’t believe in VAR. So even though VAR has had a difficult season, in terms of getting correct decisions on the night it would have been great.

More reaction from Liverpool fans elsewhere in the sporting world, this time tennis.

'Klopp enjoying his football'

Man City 1-2 Liverpool 1-5 agg

Henry Winter

Chief Football Writer for the Times on BBC Radio 5 Live

What I love about Klopp is he always looks like he is enjoying it. He’s a classy guy. If there was list of Premier League managers you want to go on a night out it is Klopp. He is enjoying his football and it is certainly enjoying watching it.

They also posted this clip of the commentators losing themselves over Roma's third.

Always gives me a warm fuzzy feeling when you hear that raw, unbridled joy in a commentator's voice when something special has happened.

'The referee is a special guy'

Man City 1-2 Liverpool 1-5 agg

It's probably fair to say Pep Guardiola is not a fan of tonight's referee...

He told BT Sport: "Congratulations to Liverpool first of all. We will be back stronger in this competition next season.

"In the right moment we miss the right decisions. The referee is a special guy, he likes to be different. Whenever people see the things, he will decide the opposite."

'We used the momentum'

Man City 1-2 Liverpool 1-5 agg

More from Jurgen: "You have to learn from the game, I had no problem conceding the early goal but we were still moaning, having little fights, want free-kick’s where there were no free-kicks. That’s not how to play.

"We needed to be more compact, we shouted that like crazy. We needed to stay in the football playing mood, show up and want the ball. If you don’t score a second and third it’s not that easy and we used the momentum for us.

"If you score one goal the atmosphere is different - nobody goes to the semi-finals twice being the much better side."

'It's not about perfection it’s about the result'

Man City 1-2 Liverpool 1-5 agg

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp speaking to BT Sport: "It was quite difficult tonight, again especially with the start. This wonderful goal that we served them on a plate. I was expecting something like that but I liked the reaction immediately after that.

"City took all the risks they could take, we needed a bit of luck and a disciplined defending formation. I was not overly happy at half-time to be honest.

"He (Pep Guardiola) took all the risks and it was his decision and it could’ve been the absolute right one, it's easy to say afterwards. They could’ve scored two or three goals in the first half but it was 100% clear that if we win the ball we’d have an opportunity.

"The last situation in the first half was how you do the counter-attack and that’s how we scored the two goals. It’s not about perfection it’s about the result, the character, the mentality, really fighting for the result. We defended well, it's not our best game but we deserved it at the end."


That moment when you pull off the unlikeliest of comebacks...

'We have to recover mentally'

Man City 1-2 Liverpool 1-5 agg

More from Pep: "We’ve had 10 amazing months. We have to recover mentally for the six games remaining. Our 10 month winning spell is exceptional. You have to analyse game by game."

'It would have been different'

Man City 1-2 Liverpool 1-5 agg

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, on being sent to the stands: "I said it was a goal when the ball was passed to Leroy Sane. That’s why he sent me off. It would have been different to go in 2-0 . It’s different when Salah’s goal at Anfield is offside. It’s different when Gabriel Jesus' goal at Anfield is offside.

"In this competition the teams are so equal and the influence of refereeing decisions is so important. We’ll go again next season. Big congratulations to Liverpool, Hopefully they can represent England well in the semi-final."

Time for some manager reaction and it's fair to say Pep Guardiola is not happy with a few decisions over the two legs...

Jack: Pep needs to learn that he should preserve some energy for the second half. Two consecutive games now where we have led at half time and chucked it away to lose. The offside which was incorrect, however, has massively changed the game, and the result.

Jacob: Guardiola's problem? Cowardice. No faith. In neither game did they play their standard 4-3-3 from this season - which WORKS.

'Underestimate Roma at your peril'

Roma 3-0 Barcelona 4-4 agg

James Horncastle

European football writer on BBC Radio 5 live

Some say this Barcelona side isn't a vintage one, but still they are still unbeaten in the league.

It is an extraordinary achievement for Roma. People continue to underestimate this Roma side. In the group stages, the group of death with Chelsea and Atletico Madrid, no one thought they would get through and they topped the group.

The have won every Champions League game at the Olimpico whiout conceding a goal. That's up agaisnt Eden Hazard, Antoine Griezmann, Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez.

Underestimate them at your peril.

'Milner magnificent'

Man City 1-2 Liverpool 1-5 agg

There's plenty of former Liverpool players taking to twitter to talk about tonight's result.

After difficult first half @LFC great second half by the defence and also on the break. Milner magnificent #YNWA

Fantastic to see @LFC in Semis , well deserve !! #YNWA On the other hand shocking result in Rome as @FCBarcelona leaves @ChampionsLeague !!

'Maybe it woke us up'

Man City 1-2 Liverpool 1-5 agg

Liverpool midfielder James Milner speaking to BT Sport:

"They’re a good team and they were always going to put us under pressure. They had chances but that shows a lot about how we came out in the second half.

"Maybe it woke us up to concede that early, it says a lot about the boys coming under that pressure in first half and in the second half last week. In the second half today we got hold of it slightly more but we still have to improve.

"Everyone knows how good Manchester City are so to beat them is a good confidence builder but we have to be better in the next round.

"We got about them a bit more in the second half, kept ball slightly better, were more composed that’s the key, it’s what you have to do against these sorts of teams."

'This journey is not over'

Rob: I wonder how Phillipe Countinho feels just about now?

David: Some big decisions went Liverpool’s way but City had 3 shots on target over 180 minutes. That’s why they’re out

Liverpool fans get the party started

Man City 1-2 Liverpool 1-5 agg

Chris Bevan

BBC Sport at Etihad Stadium

City fans are applauding their players as they make for the exits but, apart from the odd angry comment about the referee, they are understandably pretty quiet.

Meanwhile, over in the South Stand, there is a party going on as the Liverpool players go over to celebrate with their fans. "We shall not be moved" is the chant from that section of the ground.

Man City 1-2 Liverpool 1-5 agg

The away fans chant Mohamed Salah's name as he is interviewed on the pitch by BT Sport.

"The goal was a good time for us because they were pressing very high," said Salah.

"I have said many times I play for the team to help the team win the games. That is the most important thing for me."

'Man City looked jaded'

Man City 1-2 Liverpool 1-5 agg

Stephen Warnock

Ex-Liverpool defender on BBC Radio 5 Live

I feared for Liverpool at the start of the game. Terrible start but they showed character. Klopp had to have got in to them at half time and told them it wasn't adequate, wasn't good enough.

Manchester City looked jaded, looked tired and Liverpool deserved the win.

Yaw: Potential league champions in England and Spain head out? The beauty of the game!

Chris: The footballing gods have shown a good sense of bringing the mighty down to their knees! Pep shot down in flames. Barcelona shot down in flames. What next?? Seville to best Bayern??


Roma 3-0 Barcelona 4-4 agg

That's it! What a performance by Roma, stunning comeback to secure their place in the Champions League semi-finals.

Barcelona and Manchester City out. A bad night for Pep Guardiola.


Roma 3-0 Barcelona 4-4 agg

No-one can look in the stands in Roma.

Just one minute to go...


Man City 1-2 Liverpool 1-5 agg

All over! Liverpool are through to the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in a decade.

A brilliant first-leg performance is followed up by a very professional second leg display from Jurgen Klopp's men.

Roma 3-0 Barcelona 4-4 agg

Oh my word! Hearts in mouths time as Roma keeper Alisson charges out to clear but he hits the ball straight at Ousmane Dembélé, who goes for the open goal but his shot lands just over the goal. So close.

The 90 mins are up...

Two minutes of time added on at the Etihad.

Four additional minutes Stadio Olimpico.

Tense times in Italy.

Kyle Walker pings the ball in for Gabriel Jesus but Dejan Lovren heads clear. Kevin de Bruyne then swipes at the ball, lacking any belief that his cross will come to something. There is an air of resignation about Manchester City now.

Liverpool make their chance as Mohamed Salah is replaced by Danny Ings.

Into the final minute of normal time.

Paul: See, guys - Roma can do it. Perhaps City just not good enough...

Roma 3-0 Barcelona 4-4 agg

Lionel Messi bundles his way through - even the most exquisite of footballers have to resort to being untidy when the pressure is on - but he doesn't get any power behind his shot and Roma survive.

Four minutes to go for them to hold on for a famous result and a place in the Champions League semi-finals.

Man City 1-2 Liverpool 1-5 agg

Lots of Manchester City fans staring off into the middle distance, contemplating what might have been. Others have seen enough as they make for the exit.

Danny Ings is about to come on for Liverpool.

Ash: If City don’t do something quick they’re going to lose 3 in a row this season.

Anon: I've just put the mortgage on Man Utd to win the league. City are going to lose every match until the end of the season and sack Pep. Great odds !!

GOAL - Roma 3-0 Barcelona (4-4 agg)

Kostas Manolas (83 mins)


Unbelievable by Roma as they complete the unlikeliest of comebacks.

Kostas Manolas flicks a brilliant header in at the far post from a corner and Roma are going through on away goals as things stand. Deservedly so too as well. What a performance by the Serie A side.


Man City 1-2 Liverpool 1-5 agg

Ooh tight call as Manchester City have the ball in the net but Leroy Sane is again flagged offside. Fine margins.

'Liverpool shown quality City have lacked'

Chris Waddle

Ex-England winger on BBC Radio 5 live

Roberto Firmino takes his time and passes it in, takes his time, doesn;t panic. Two bits of magic in the final third which City haven't had tonight.

Man City 1-2 Liverpool 1-5 agg

What a save! Brilliant by Marc-André ter Stegen as he somehow denies Stephan El Shaarawy from close range.

That could prove to be massive for Barcelona, who have not been at the races tonight at all.
