Guardiola sees red, falls short in Champions League again

Mohamed Salah ensured Liverpool's return to the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in a decade as a 2-1 win at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday took them through 5-1 on aggregate and ended Manchester City's European dream for another season.

In one night, Manchester United and Barcelona FC have both been shockingly kicked out of the UEFA's Champions League game.

Liverpool issued a statement in which they apologised to City and said they would "cooperate fully with the authorities to identify those responsible".

City manager Pep Guardiola was infuriated as he confronted referee Mateu Lahoz at half-time before being sent to the stands for the second 45 minutes. I don't know if you're looking for odds, but I had this conversation a couple of weeks ago and I made the point that prior to Christmas, had you asked me if Liverpool can win this competition, I'd have said no. It wasn't what we wanted, but this is part of football.

"I said the ball came from Milner, he said: 'Ah from Milner, the pass?' 'Yes from Milner and when it comes from Milner it is not offside'".

Junior hockey team bus crash in Canada leaves 15 dead, 14 injured
What's unfolding in Humboldt, Sask., is a national tragedy. "These are young boys, some of them still in high school". Canadian public broadcaster CBC spoke to the sister of coach Darcy Haugan, who said he was killed in the collision.

A disallowed goal for City towards the end of the first half was the catalyst for the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach's rage.

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.

The match was not without controversy after Gabriel Jesus opened the scoring inside two minutes - Leroy Sane's goal ruled out for offside despite Liverpool's James Milner having touched the ball into the German's path. That is why sent me off. But Mateu Lahoz is a special guy. Had it stood, City, seeking to overturn a 3-0 deficit from the first leg, would've been 2-0 up at half-time.

Despite a handsome aggregate win, Milner said Liverpool have to be better whoever they are drawn against in the semi-finals.

It was always going to require something extraordinary for City to progress but Liverpool's two strikes after the break from Salah and Roberto Firmino killed any such hope for Guardiola. The goal from Gabriel Jesus at Anfield is a goal, it is not offside and it is a penalty on [Raheem] Sterling from [Andy] Robertson in front of the fourth official. "There are six games to go and we must focus on that, finish the season with the Premier League trophy. We were beaten by an exceptional team", he said.
