Hamburg 3 Manchester City 1 UEFA Quarter Finals

Despite Shay Given's heroics in front of goal, it had ended 1-3, in favour of the Germans.

Manchester City were particularly unlucky. Hamburg should not have been awarded penalty in my opinion.

Was Micah Richards handball intentional? I doubt it.. He was only trying to protect his face from Mathijsen's ferocious kick! I will shield my face too when someone whacks the ball at my face..

Hamburg SV
Joris Mathijsen (9) Piotr Trochowski (pen 64) José Paolo Guerrero (79)

Manchester City
Stephen Ireland (1)
