Everything you need to know about the remainder of Manchester City’s 2019/20 Champions League campaign…

Round of 16

We progressed from the Last 16 stage of the competition thanks to our 4-2 aggregate win over Real Madrid.

That victory means we join Atalanta, Atletico Madrid, RB Leipzig, Paris Saint-Germain and Lyon, who have also all qualified for the quarter-finals.

The ties still to be decided are:

  • Bayern Munich vs Chelsea (3-0)
  • Barcelona vs Napoli (1-1)

Quarter-finals and semi-finals

After our victory over Los Blancos, we face Lyon in the next stage of the Champions League.

The French outfit overcame Italian champions Juventus on away goals after their two legged clash finished 2-2 on aggregate.

If we win that game, we will face either Barcelona, Napoli, Bayern Munich or Chelsea in the last four.
