That's full time. A simple and brutal victory for City who barely had to sweat. Schalke return to desperate league situation after failing to keep their heads above water after conceding the first goal.
Apparently there will be no added time, which makes no sense, but there you go.

- GoalRaheem SterlingManchester City
VAR says the goal was indeed onside, so there we are. It is 4-0 to City and a great goal from City.
GOAL! Manchester City 4-0... No, it's another offside. Sane attacks from the left, angles in a pass to the back post for Sterling to sidefoot in. It did look onside...
Yes, it is offside.
Sane appears to have another one, but this time he is flagged for offside. On comes the VAR.
Sane chases a ball over the top from Gundogan, and edges a ball just wide of the far post. A brilliant pass from the midfielder.
A zesty one here. Laporte challenges for a high ball from the free kick, and Schalke's Sane's overhead kick thumps into Laporte's shoulder. He's down for treatment.
- Yellow cardDaniloManchester City
Schalke are being slowly pressed in the defence, and manage to get it clear before ZInchenko is fouled over the halfway line. Danilo is booked for a sliding tackle earlier on Embolo, and is getting a cut cleaned up from that earlier collision.

PENALTY! Gundogan floats in a pass for Bernardo, blocked off by Jeffrey Bruma. The defender asks for VAR to be consulted but it seems unlikely.

Martin Keown is on co-comms.
Sane wins a free kick from Embolo on the left wing in a dangerous position. Sane receives the cross but it's cleared before Sane can get a touch to it.

Schalke break from City's short corner, Embolo is ound on the right, and his cross is headed away at the near post by Gundogan, who had rushed back.
Corner on the left wing for City, with Gunadgan to take.
Mikel Arteta on the bench next to Guardiola - still yet to play a game for City since his move from Arsenal.
- 1st Half
The game gets underway with an audible roar from the away fans.
Five minues to go here, and you can also follow Juventus v Atletico on the site.
10 minutes to go, and a typically packed away end at the City stadium.
Pep Guardiola has downplayed his side's chances: "This competition is judged that when you are out of the last 16 it is a big disaster. My perspective is completely different. People say it is easy. Imagine to get into the last eight teams in Europe? Of course we want to win it but the other teams also have this desire. People think that because Real Madrid are not there, this competition will be easy. Of course I thought they were the favourites but there still remains incredible clubs to beat."
Schalke are not having their greatest season. Qualified for the Champions League last season, they now are in 14th, and only four points above the bottom three. Disastrous, then.

Of course, City's problems aren't on the pitch as much as they are off it. Potential problems from UEFA and the Premier League could see them have titles withdrawn and future punishments implemented. None of the accusations were new or surprising, and they aren't now. City, obviously, claim total innocence. All cleared up then!
Manchester City are the favourites tonight. A superb comeback in the first leg gives them a 3-2 advantage, which means that short of a risible collapse, they are through.
