After winning the first leg of their last-16 tie 5-3 two weeks ago, City went into the return match with the French league leaders knowing it would be a tricky evening, and so it proved.
Kylian Mbappé and Fabinho made it 2-0 at half-time, meaning City needed to score at least once, and when Leroy Sane found the net with 20 minutes to go, it looked like they were heading for the quarter-finals.
However, Tiemoué Bakayoko headed in the decisive goal to level things at 6-6 on aggregate, meaning Monaco progressed on the away goals rule.
When he arrived in Manchester, he was heralded as the Messiah, but right now Pep Guardiola is very much the butt of the joke:
Guardiola is a shite manager

City brought in Guardiola for European glory – his predecessor reached the semi final & won the league! Is Pep all that? #ManCity

Glad Man City went out tonight. Guardiola tactically at fault and that lead to his team losing there two goal advantage.

Guardiola finishing the season without a trophy. I've always said he couldn't manage a small club.

Pep Guardiola should now phone the Walsall legend and Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare and ask "how do you do it???"

This is the real Guardiola, when he doesn't have Messi or referees helping him

Pep Guardiola has never been able to set up a defence. His Barcelona side was always vulnerable if you had a go at them @talkSPORT

What do you think of City’s result? And what about the reaction?
