City held a 2-1 advantage after winning the first leg of their Round of 16 tie in Spain. And they matched that scoreline to ensure they progress to the Last Eight.

Sterling put City in the driving seat after eight minutes with his landmark 100th goal. However, Madrid hit back just before the half-hour mark through Karim Benzema.

City restored their lead in the game, and extended it in the tie overall, in the second half, when Gabriel Jesus finished from a tight angle.

It means Pep Guardiola’s side win the tie 4-2 on aggregate. They will face Lyon – who beat Juventus on away goals – in the quarter-finals.
