Join us for live coverage of the Champions League quarter-final second leg between Manchester City and Tottenham from the Etihad Stadium. Spurs won the first leg 1-0. City must score, but would need three if they were to concede.

Immense joy on the Spurs bench and City are gutted. Thanks for joining us and enjoy the rest of the night!
FT: Man City 4-3 Tottenham (agg 4-4, Spurs win on away goals). I'm lost for words. Man C dominated the second half, Aguero made it 4-2 and then Llorente scored out of the blue from a corner which was confirmed after a VAR review. Spurs withheld until injury time when Sterling scored the winner until the VAR disallowed it as Aguero was offside in the build-up. That was a classic. Spurs will face Ajax and City can't win the treble.
Son takes it short to Llorente and it's all over!!!!
What's Son doing? He tries to make it 4-4!!! Why not go to the corner? Sane has to cut out and Spurs get a corner. Pochettino wants full-time
Spurs have the ball and keep the ball towards the corner.
Spurs clear away a Fernandinho cross. 95:35
Man C still attacking. We have reached 95, but there will be one more.
From joy to despair! Long live the VAR!
Aguero is offside and the VAR takes it away!! It was flicked on by B Silva
City score!!! Sterling does it!!! Absolutely stunning! Spurs can't believe it! Eriksen lost the ball, the ball falls to Aguero and then Sterling fires home! But Aguero is offside!
City ask for a free-kick on the edge of the box. Nothing given.
Almost Hail Mary time for City
Spurs sub: Rose leaves the field and D Sanchez comes on. Five added minutes
Rose tries to keep the ball near the corner and they try and waste time. Aguero is then fouled.
Cross sent into the box by a City player and Lloris catches under his own goal. City's quadruple hopes are about to end unless they score in the next few minutes
Long ball is sent for Llorente is too long.
What an opportunity for City!! Fernandinho crosses for Sane, he heads to Gundogan and he blazes over from inside the six yard-box
Eriksen tires a Beckham-esque shot from just inside his own half, but it goes straight to Ederson
Man C sub: Sane replaces Mendy. Final throw of the dice from Guardiola
Spurs sub: Davies on for Moura.
Aguero heads a cross at Lloris! Man C siege again. This could go either way.
Gundogan smacks it over the crossbar!
Great play by B Silva and his shot is deflected for a corner.
Wanyama sees yellow after De Bruyne is broght down. There was pinball in the City box seconds before that. Insane
He gives it!! Cakir is spot on! The ref says it hits his thigh and the goal stands.
I think it misses his arm. For me, it's a goal. The ref is having a good look at it.
It may touch his arm as well and the ref is going to the sideline. It's accidental, but if it goes in with an accidental handball, they are told to disallow it.
It's 4-3!!! Absolutely unbelievable! From the second corner, Llorente did what he did best! Head from a corner! But it wasn't his head, it just missed his arm and it struck his side or thigh before going in.
Son gets himself a corner. A nice pass by Alderweireld to Son and Ederson deflects it for a corner.
64% possession and six shots to two in the hosts favour in the second half
Aguero wins a free-kick in a dangerous area.
Bar the one Llorente opportunity, City have controlled the second period,
Fernandinho is spoken after making a challenge. He looked to win the ball though
Aguero wants a penalty! The ref says Vertonghen won the ball cleanly.
Gundogan finds Sterling. He runs into the box and then he crosses back to Gundogan who cannot get a shot off. Sterling is offside anyway.
Still 4-2 here and City look very comfortable.
Man C sub: D Silva off for Fernandinho
It's 4-2!!! Aguero completes the comeback! Seconds after Eriksen shot at the other end! De Bruyne makes the goal with a 30 yard run from halfway after a Gundogan pass, he sees Aguero on the right who smashes it into the net! It was coming to be fair.
Llorente gets his head on a cross and Ederson saves!
D Silva gets his head on Gundogan's free-kick and it flies over. Man C dominating
B Silva is brought down by Llorente
Mendy has a cross cleared and Rose sees yellow after B Silva was fouled in the previous move and the ref played an advantage.
Whart a save by Lloris to deny De Bruyne! It is towards the middle of the goal and he had to knockmit away. Aguero gives him the ball, but B Silva started that move with a fabulous run.
City on top since the break
Double chance for City!! Sterling has the first chance after D Silva gives him the ball and B Silva feels he was given a push in the back on the rebound.
De Bruyne shoots over the crossbar!
Free kick to Spurs on the edge of the box after De Bruyne has his shirt pulled by Son. He also sees yellow and would miss the first leg of the semi.
Welcome back everyone! Spurs have got us back underway! No changes
HT: Man City 3-2 Tottenham (agg 3-3)!! That was bonkers. Five goals in 21 minutes so Sterling give the lead, Son score twice to make it 1-2 and then B Silva and Sterling gave the hosts the lead. That said, Guardiola's need one more. Man C were better after that, but Son still looks dangerous for the away side. Join us for more in 10 minutes!
Good run by Sterling just now and Vertonghen snatches the ball off him as he goes into the box
The free-kick in is cleared.
Free kick to City on the far side after Trippier keeps on grabbing Sterling's left arm
Three extra minutes
De Bruyne tries his luck from outside the area now! B Silva hands him the ball and the Belgian fires at the GK. I feel like I'm playing typing this live!
Son fires wide! He is so close to his hat-trick! Ball is sent in to Son on this near side, the Korean fires across the GK and it just flies wide. Almost 3-3
Excellent move now by City ends with D Silva being stopped by a defender.
Spurs sub: Llorente replaces Sissoko. There will be lots of stoppage time
The ref is fed up and books Sissoko for timewasting
Sissoko got up and tried to continue and he is down again. This is getting silly now. He clearly can't carry on. He is only going to aggravate his injury.
Sissoko is down again. He turned is leg awkwardly a few minutes back and he will be unable to continue.
What a block by Alderweireld to prevent an Aguero effort from close range from hitting the target. De Bruyne gave him it
Sissoko went down injured, but he is up now.
The game has calmed down in the last 10 minutes, but still open. City a better now
B Silva is penalised for a foul on Rose. He isn't happy about it.
City picking up now and a dangerous ball is sent in by Bernardo Silva after superb play involving Walker amongst others.
City attack again, but B Silva's final ball is poor
54% possession now for the hosts. Spurs on top in the last 5
Eriksen sends a ball into the box looking for Trippier and Mendy clears
Spurs attacking more now since the Sterling goal
Amazing run now by Son, he beats various players before Kompany halts him
Spurs still attacking and the City defence clear. This could finish 7-6 or something like that.
3-2!!! Sterling scores again! City took a quick free-kick on the near side, pass to Bernardo Silva for De Bruyne and he sent in a tremendous cross for Sterling to score at the far stick. This is incredible. Spurs going through on away goals at the moment.
Eriksen smacks it well over after a cross in was headed away by Laporte.
69% for City, but crazily open. Tottenham also dangerous. Moura has just caused trouble now down the far side which had to be cleared for a corner.
D Silva sends it in and he actually seems to go for goal. The ball lands on the top of the net.
Free-kick for the hosts here in a dangerous after Walker makes a 30 yard run. Wanyama brings him down.
4 shots, 4 goals. Very poor defending, by the way.
Superb move now by De Bruyne on this near side , he beats a defender and then wants a corner. He is not given it though.
This start has just been ridiculous. So so open. Man C need two more to progress.
Bernardo makes it 2-2!! This is ridiculous! Great play by City, Aguero passes it for Bernardo Silva inside the box and his shot is deflected by Rose into the net. Two more needed now. Madness!
Son does it again!!!! Laporte is dispossessed by Moura in his own half, he charges at the City defence, he lays it for Eriksen and then Son curls it into the far corner. Amazing! City need three more!
Son scores for Spurs!!! Extraordinary! City need another two! Out of the blue. Good play by Lucas Moura, he passes for Alli whose ball for Eriksen is cut out by Laporte. Unfortunately for him, it falls to Son who hits home!
Sterling is played in again on the far side, but he is slightly offside.
What a goal!!! Sterling gets the hosts going! De Bruyne plays a nice one-two with Aguero in Spurs territory, the Belgian then passes for Sterling on the far-side, he receives in the box before shooting into Lloris' bottom left corner. Superb.
Open start to this game with both teams attacking.
Long ball sent by Ederson for Silva and he pushes Rose by the by-line. Cakir gives him a warning.
New ball after 30 seconds! There's a problem with it. Full moon here this evening.
Man C get us going shooting from left to right!
About to start here! Enjoy!
Son and Alderweireld will miss the 1st leg of the semi if they see yellow.
15 degrees and dry in Manchester this evening. Good weather.
The players are on the way out! There is a great atmosphere in Manchester!
The winner of this tie will face Ajax in the next round. That won't be an easy case. Man City must score tonight and if they concede, the hosts will require three.
Cuneyt Cakir of Turkey is the official for tonight's game. He will receive help from the Italian Massimiliano Irrati in the van if needed.
Both sides won at the weekend. Spurs cruised to a 4-0 win over Huddersfield with Moura getting a hat-trick and City overcame Palace in a 1-3 victory.
For Spurs, Harry Kane misses out after getting injured in the first leg, but Dele Alli is fit despite breaking his hand. Lucas Moura comes in for Harry Kane and Wanyama plays ahead of Winks.
Man City make various changes to the first leg team. Kompany and Mendy replace Otamendi and Delph in defence, Bernardo Silva and De Bruyne also start in place of Mahrez and Fernandinho.
The visitors' line-up: Lloris (GK); Rose, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Trippier; Moura, Wanyama, Eriksen, Sissoko, Alli; Son
We have the elevens so let's not waste any more time. Man CIty's side: Ederson (GK); Mendy, Laporte, Kompany, Walker; D Silva, Gundogan, De Bruyne; B Silva, Aguero and Sterling
