Champions League: VAR Dramaas Spurs Dump Man City; Liverpool Through

Manchester City saw their quadruple dreams come crashing down after going down to Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League quarter-finals.

City needed to overhaul a 1-0 loss from the first leg but could only win 4-3 after an intense match which saw a flurry of goals at the start. However, the 4-4 aggregate score meant Spurs qualified on away goals rule.

Raheem Sterling had given Spurs an early lead (4′) but two goals from Heung-Min Son (7′, 10′) put Spurs in a commanding position. However, goals from Sterling (21′) and Sergio Aguero (59′) seemed to have handed City the initiative, only for Fernando Llorente to score the winner in the 73rd minute.

There was drama late on as Sterling found the back of the net in the 93rd minute but after a vAR check, the goal was disallowed and Spurs held on for a famous victory.

In the other Champions League quarter-final, Liverpool coasted past FC Porto 4-1 to register a 6-1 aggregate win. Sadio Mane, Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Virgil Van Dijk were all on target for Klopp’s side while Eder scored Porto’s consolation.
