MATCH FACTS

This is the first competitive encounter between Manchester City and Monaco.
Manchester City have never lost to French opposition in European competition (W1 D2), with all three previous meetings coming against PSG.
Meanwhile, Monaco have come out on top in each of their three Champions League knockout ties with English clubs (v Manchester Utd in 1997/98, Chelsea in 2003/04, Arsenal in 2014/15).
In fact, Monaco have lost only one of their five Champions League away games against English opposition (W2 D2), winning their last two CL games on English soil (v Arsenal in February 2015, v Tottenham in September 2016).
Manchester City have won their Champions League group only once in six participations (2015/16). It’s also the first time Pep Guardiola hasn’t secured top spot in a Champions League group campaign as manager.
Monaco have topped their Champions League group four times in as many participations under the current format (2003/04, 2004/05, 2014/15, 2016/17).
Manchester City are unbeaten in their last eight Champions League home games (W5 D3), conceding only five goals in the along the way, their longest run without a defeat in the competition at the Etihad.
However, Manchester City have won only one of their five home games in the Champions League knockout stages (D2 L2), it was against PSG last April.
Monaco have lost five of their last seven Champions League knockout games (W1 D1), with their only win in that time coming in London against Arsenal (3-1, February 2015).
Manchester City and Monaco have both only kept one clean sheet in this season’s Champions League: Only Real Madrid have had fewer (0) among teams in the round of 16 (Napoli and Paris SG also one).
Sergio Agüero has scored in only one of his last six Champions League games at the Etihad (hat-trick v Borussia Mönchengladbach). He’s also failed to find the net in his last 522 minutes of Champions League knockout action.
Despite having made only 10 starts in the Champions League, Falcao has scored six goals and delivered one assist.
