Guardiola's charges, who came into the game after losing the first leg 3-0, had a flawless start with Gabriel Jesus putting them ahead in two minutes.

City thought they had a second when German winger Leroy Sane pull the ball in the net in the 41st minute, only for referee Mateu Lahoz to disallow the goal for a non-existent offside.

Second-half goals from Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino killed off any hopes of a City fightback after an early Gabriel Jesus strike, securing a 2-1 victory and a 5-1 aggregate success in a compelling quarter-final.

"We mature constantly", Klopp said after the game in which Liverpool became the first team to beat a Guardiola-managed side three times in one season.

A Liverpool fan has gone viral after he correctly predicted the events in the club's Champions League match at Manchester City.

After goals by Edin Dzeko and Daniele De Rossi, center back Kostas Manolas scored the decisive goal with a header from a corner in the 82nd minute at the Stadio Olimpico. But I know him [Lahoz] from Spain, so I could imagine that. "Congratulations to Liverpool but, in the right moment, we missed the right decisions".

The second offence came while sitting in the stands as television images showed Guardiola seemingly communicating with City's bench.

City understandably failed to maintain the intensity of their first-half display and Salah got the decisive goal when he followed up after Ederson had denied Sadio Mane with a wonderfully-judged chipped finish past the despairing Nicolas Otamendi in the 56th minute.

"We didn't have any luck with injuries and City didn't have injuries all season". More than a few Liverpool fans likely found their fingernails bitten down to stubs by the time the referee blew the halftime whistle.

"We didn't play great in the two games but we congratulate Liverpool and focus on the six games we have until the end of the season to wrap up the title".

"This competition is quite fair and I really think a normal final would have been Manchester City against Barcelona, and now they are both out".

Even if he were standing in an offside position, the ball came to Sané from a rebound off James Milner, after Loris Karius leapt to punch the ball clear, a plan which backfired, only to be saved by the flag.

"We got about them a bit more in the second half, kept the ball slightly better and were more composed".

"In these kind of games, in these competitions, the impact is so big".

Buoyed by their good fortune, Liverpool looked like a different team in the second half, pressing to force City into mistakes.
