Manchester City are through to the Champions League last-16 after a thrilling 2-2 draw with Lyon.

Maxwel Cornet struck twice for Lyon, but each time City fought back within minutes through Aymeric Laporte and then Sergio Aguero to secure a vital point. 

The Blues are now assured a place in the last 16 of the competition and need a point to guarantee top spot against a Hoffenheim side who cannot progress.

It's the sixth-consecutive season we've progressed to the knock-out phase. 

You can watch an interview with man-of-the-match Laporte via the video above!
