Atletico 0-0 Man City (0-1 AGG): Guardiola’s Side Beat 10-Men Atletico On Aggregate To Advance To UCL Semi-Final

After a tense scoreless draw at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday night, Guardiola and Manchester City eliminated Atletico Madrid from the Champions League.

Even though the game ended in a 0-0 draw, City advanced to the second leg after a 1-0 victory in the first, and there were plenty of talking points in stoppage time alone.

Atletico Madrid turned up a near-perfect performance on the night, keeping City at bay for the majority of the game and flawlessly executing Diego Simeone’s gameplan. However, in the final quarter-hour, they were let loose and poured pressure on their opponents.

Despite being urged on by a tremendous atmosphere at the Wanda Metropolitano, they were unable to capitalize on a few of opportunities.

Felipe was sent off for a second yellow card in stoppage time for chopping down Phil Foden with the ball out of play, making their task even more difficult.

When tempers flared, Guardiola’s City handled the situation in a way that Simeone would have been proud of.

The Premier League winners were able to run down the clock and just about made it across the line thanks to a spectacular stop from Ederson with one of the game’s final kicks on an Atleti counterattack.

In the Champions League semi-finals, Manchester City will face Real Madrid.
