BT Sport app pinpoints the moment Manchester City fans' hearts break after VAR decision


Manchester City vs Tottenham on Wednesday night was one of the most memorable games in Champions League history. 

It was the second leg of their quarter-final tie and Spurs took a 1-0 advantage to the Etihad after winning the first fixture. 

Still, they were far from favourites with many expecting City to turn things around. What nobody expected though, was the 4-3 thriller we were treated to.

Raheem Sterling wiped out Tottenham's aggregate lead within four minutes before Son Heung-min turned the game on its head with two goals inside the opening 10 minutes. 

It was 2-2 60 seconds later, with Bernardo Silva squeezing in a finish at the near post. Talk about a lightning fast start.

Fans watching the game unfold couldn't quite believe what was happening but after 11 minutes things calmed down. One more goal was scored in the first half, with Sterling grabbing his second.

After the break, Sergio Aguero netted to put City 4-2 up with 30 minutes left - and that scoreline would have been enough to send his side through. 

Incredibly, Spurs hit back once again through Fernando Llorente, although their goal came in rather controversial fashion.


The replay shows he may have used his hand in the process of scoring, but referee Cuneyt Cakir deemed it a fair goal after the VAR review.  

In the 93rd minute, Sterling thought he'd won it again for Guardiola's side by completing his hat-trick, only for VAR to chalk a goal off this time. It was the correct call. 

Still, that won't go any way to consoling Man City fans, whose emotions went from pure ecstasy to utter disappointment in the space of a few seconds last night.  


It was bad enough for those watching at home, but for supporters inside the stadium, it was even worse.

In fact, BT Sport cameras picked up moments between fans celebrating the goal and then realising it's been disallowed - and the footage pinpoints the exact moment that hundreds of hearts break.

Ouch. Those City fans inside the Etihad saw dreams of a historic quadruple crumble in front of their very eyes last night. 

For neutral supporters, their loss to Spurs was one of the most exciting Champions League games in history. But for the Guardiola's side, it was another disappointing end to a European campaign.
