Champions League video: watch Man City’s seven goals against Schalke

Manchester City 7 FC Schalke 04 0 (City win 10-2 on aggregate)

Manchester City battered Schalke to become the third Premier League club to reach the last eight of the Uefa Champions League.

The Premier League champions join Tottenham and Manchester United in the hat for Friday’s quarter-final draw.

After winning 3-2 in the first leg in Germany there was never any doubt of City’s place in the last eight once Sergio Aguero opened the scoring from the penalty spot on 35 minutes. The Argentine scored his second three minutes later and Leroy Sane made it 3-0 before the break.

Pep pleased

City ran riot in the second half with Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus finding the back of the German’s net.

The last time three English teams reached the quarter-finals was in 2011 and Liverpool could make it a quartet if they beat Bayern Munich in Germany this evening.

“It is nice for English football that three teams are there in the quarter-finals and Liverpool too, maybe,” said City manager Pep Guardiola.

“In the last decade Spanish teams controlled everything. It is good for us. For English football it’s incredible.”
