Absurdity at the Etihad, vibrant Ajax and cones of shame – Football Weekly Extra

Join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and email.

We look back at the last few days of football, starting with the extraordinary game between Manchester City and Tottenham, which ended 4-3 to Manchester City, but saw Spurs getting through to the semi-finals of the Champions League. They’ll face a young and vibrant Ajax side, who travelled to Turin and beat Juventus 2-1 in their own back yard.

Liverpool will face Barcelona in the other leg – they both had rather less dramatic second-leg wins against Porto and Manchester United respectively.

Arsenal beat Watford in unusual circumstances, with almost all of the action occurring in a two-minute period in the first half, and Cardiff reduced the gap between themselves and Brighton to just two points by beating them 2-0.

Finally, we round up the big stories across Europe and look ahead to the Premier League fixtures this weekend.

Back on Monday!
