However, City still have a chance to add to their trophy cabinet as they could still win the FA Cup and the Champions League. City will face Sheffield Wednesday next in the FA Cup. After winning the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16 against Real Madrid, Guardiola's side would welcome the Los Blancos on March 18.
