Two minutes later Raheem Sterling doubled the lead for Pep’s side reigniting the clash one more time but Son again silenced City fans equalizing for the second time.

Bernardo Silva’s deflected effort and Aguero’s wonder strike gave City another lead but a bundled Llorente’s knock on thighs sent Tottenham through to the Semi-final for the first time.

Tottenham defensive calm

Tottenham proved to a tough team for the night displaying quality defensive mechanisms that blocked Manchester City’s efforts to win the match.

Pochettino’s side defended and shielded the ball from going to the back of their net and even made it difficult for some Manchester City’s creative midfielders from creating chances.

In the end their efforts paid off booking themselves a date with Ajax who knocked out Juventus in the round of eight.
