Liverpool lost the match 3-2, bringing an end to their defence of the European Cup as they went out 4-2 on aggregate.

Uefa also announced that Atletico had been fined €24,000 (£21,285) for the blocking of public passageways in the reverse fixture at the Wanda Metropolitano on 18 February.

City won the match 2-1 but are yet to play the second leg of the tie due to the coronavirus outbreak.
