Manchester City endured another shocking 3-1 defeat at Lisbon in the Champions League quarter-final versus Lyon last night.

It is the third straight season at this point that Pep Guardiola ‘s men are forced out.

Lyon took an unexpected lead in the 24th minute through Maxwel Cornet goal.

Kevin De Bruyne scored the equaliser but Ederson’s howlers guided Moussa Dembele to score twice in the final minutes to seal a successful Lyon victory.

The improbable win set up Lyon to last-four battle with Bayern Munich, who humiliated Barcelona 8-2 in their quarter-final.

After 1995-96 season, it is for the first time there’s no Spanish or English teams in the semi-finals of the champions league. In the 2019-20 UCL semis, there are two French teams and two Bundesliga sides.

Kylian Mbappe, hero of Paris Saint-Germain, took a humorous jab at City after the match when he tweeted ‘Farmers League.’

Supporters oftentimes throw this same word just to ridicule the consistency of the French League. However, it barely remains the case this season when two French clubs can be seen in the semis.

For the first time since 1991, there will be no English, Spanish and Italian clubs in the last four of European cup and for the first time in UCL history.

Lyon would now take on German Giants Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
