Man City vs Atletico Madrid LIVE: Champions League updates – City frustrated with disciplined Atleti at Etihad

Guardiola jokes about the departure of 12 players against Atlético

the Champions League returns on Tuesday evening and Pep Guardiolait’s Manchester Cityfinalists beaten last year, take center stage by hosting Atlético Madrid at the Etihad Stadium. Both of these clubs were champions of their respective domestic leagues last year, but with City once again top of the Premier League, Atleti are looking to cede the title to city rivals in La Liga.

Guardiola and his counterpart Diego Simeone have faced heartache in the final of this competition with their current clubs, but City remain favorites to go the distance this time around – although it will be a huge test for Cityzens in the last eight. At the weekend they warmed up for the tie with a routine victory over Burnley, while the Spanish side hammered Alaves to claim six straight wins in all competitions.

City topped their group in the previous round, while Atletico were second in theirs. The winners of this tie will progress to face either Chelsea or Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals, following last month’s draw.

Man City 0-0 Atletico Madrid

56 minutes: De Bruyne goes to goal this time and Oblak is on his left intelligently to save! He chokes the ball at the second moment of the request.

City still have a shot on target!

Man City 0-0 Atletico Madrid

54 min: Free kick for Manchester City 30 meters from the goal. Is a set piece their way out of the impasse?

Well, they’re trying something pretty cute! De Bruyne plays short to Gundogan and he hands it to Mahrez who is then fouled 10 yards closer! Another free kick. This time it’s about 22 yards from goal.

52 mins: De Bruyne gets the better of Mahrez but Felipe clears. Atletico break again and they have three advancing! Koke tries to find Llorente with a perfect pass but he had to give it to Felix on the other side! Llorente recovers it at the edge of the area but his cross / shot is straight in the arms of Ederson.

A waste. Atletico already look much more powerful.

Man City 0-0 Atletico Madrid

50 mins: A sign of things to come? The public is there and there is already more energy in this second half. This will play into the hands of Manchester City.

The hosts have another corner.

Man City 0-0 Atletico Madrid

48 min: Best chance of the game for Man City! De Bruyne whips a ball into Gundogan. The German pivots and curls to the far corner which Sterling tries to deflect towards goal but it’s wide. Took a nickname from an Atletico player and kicked out for a corner.

Atletico then suddenly breaks from the resulting corner! Griezmann sprints flawlessly and there’s no one to cover! He slows down though and opts to try to find Felix on the left but misses the pass and it’s off for a throw.

It was a chance for both sides. Better already!

Man City 0-0 Atletico Madrid

47 mins: Oh, hello! Llorente is behind in the first seconds of the second half. He blows the finisher into Ederson’s arms, then the flag goes up.

There was about 10 yards offside. Ridiculous that the game continues.

Man City 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Aimless, yes. But it’s sugar coating that half of football. Tactically, it’s fascinating. But aesthetically entertaining, it hasn’t been good.

HT: Man City 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Half-time: No additional time at the end of the first half. It really tells you everything you need to know. Almost nothing happened. At all.

Atletico Madrid will be very happy. Manchester City with some thoughts.
