Manchester City 1-0 PSG (3-2 on aggregate)
Manchester City qualified for the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in their history after beating PSG 1-0 to secure a 3-2 aggregate win over the French Champions.
City were awarded a penalty in the first half when Sergio Aguero was brought down by PSG goalkeeper Kevin Trapp, but the Argentine missed the resulting spot kick after firing his effort wide of the post.

Goalkeeper Joe Hart tipped a powerful Zlatan Ibrahimovic free-kick over the cross bar and the two sides went into the half-time break goalless.
Hart was on fine form and pulled off a number of saves to deny both Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani, and Thiago Silva almost put PSG ahead but his header was again stopped out.
City took the lead in the 76th minute when Kevin De Bruyne curled a fine effort in from the edge of the box to secure a 1-0 win to seal City a place in the Champions League semi-finals.

Real Madrid 3-0 Wolfsburg (3-2 on aggregate)
A Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick sent Real Madrid into the Champions League semi-final as Wolfsburg wilted despite taking a 2-0 lead into the game.

The Portuguese has 46 goals this season but none were more important than these three taking him to 16 Champions League goals this year and putting the Spanish side in the last four for the sixth year running.
He had dragged his team into a two-goal lead in the first half but frustration was creeping in when on 76 minutes Luka Modric charged at the Wolfsburg defence and won a free-kick. Ronaldo sent it past Diego Benaglio from 30 yards out and brought the house down.

He has so often been under-appreciated at the Santiago Bernabeu but even by his high standards this one man show was something extraordinary and will go down as one of the greatest individual performances in a Real Madrid shirt.
