Liverpool vs Manchester City (Quarterfinal - 2017-18)

Manchester City v Liverpool - UEFA Champions League Quarter Final
Manchester City v Liverpool - UEFA Champions League Quarter Final

Liverpool 5: 1 Manchester City

Pep Guardiola's 2017-18 Manchester City were a formidable side, ruthless in attack and miserly in defense. The first team to score 100 points in the Premier league, they cantered their way to the league and league cup, and were considered by many to be the best team in Europe.

Liverpool had already defeated City once in the league (City's first loss that season), but were still the underdogs coming into the first leg at Anfield. However, some brilliant attacking football from the the home side coupled with City's suicidal high press saw Liverpool take a three goal lead to the Etihad. And although City came flying out of the blocks in the second leg, they were unable to penetrate the Liverpool back line, eventually falling to a a 1-5 aggregate defeat.
