Guardiola’s men will now head to Portugal for a quarter-final tie with Lyon, who have pulled off an upset by beating much-fancied Juventus on away goals following a 2-2 aggregate draw.
As for Madrid, they have a month’s rest before doing it all over again. Manchester City are through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a 2-1 victory on the day to seal a 4-2 win on aggregate.
Sterling made the most of a Varane error to give the hosts an early lead and, after Benzema had levelled things up with a good header, Jesus scored a second for the hosts following another Varane howler.

Ronaldo pulled one back from the spot after Depay’s handball. Ronaldo got his second with a brilliant curling effort, but they couldn’t find the other goal they needed to get through.
