Manchester City 4 – 3 Tottenham Hotspur


Taking a narrow home leg win into this Champions League quarter final, the odds were very much stacked against Spurs. Ten minutes in and it was actually looking pretty peachy. Ten minutes after that, not so much. Even after Fernando Llorente punched(!) the ball into the net in the 73rd minute, you still expected Man City to score again. Which they did, but Raheem Streling’s effort was ruled out for offside, denying him a hat trick and his team a win. To this day, City are still looking for their inaugural Champions League title. Which, given the abundance of talent in their squad(s) over the past decade is a bit of a head scratcher. Spurs progressed and met Ajax in the semi finals. Surely this type of thing couldn’t happen again, could it?
