    Tottenham Hotspur and PSG fell by the Champions League wayside on Wednesday evening, with both sides failing to overcome their first-leg deficits.

    Both sides went into their second leg ties one goal down on Bayern Munich and AC Milan, respectively. However, neither team could repeat Chelsea's heroics from Tuesday evening, who turned around the same scoreline against Borussia Dortmund.

    Instead, the two heavyweights have now joined Dortmund and Club Brugge in leaving Europe's premier table. Milan and Bayern will now enter the quarter-final draw alongside Chelsea and Benfica from Tuesday night's fixtures.

    Spurs' poor form continued at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, with the crowd falling flat in the first half.

    Milan expertly sucked the life out of the game by disrupting Antonio Conte's side's rhythm. Cristian Romero was the pantomime villain after he was booked in the first 16 seconds of the clash, and he was given his marching orders in the second half.

    And as Spurs began to run out of ideas as the game drew to a close, some fans demanded Conte walk from the job.

    One fan tweeted: "It’s over now. My god, this was incredibly s*** from Tottenham. I think Conte is about to walk immediately."

    "Kane has done all he can with the rubbish players around him so this isn’t the game to scapegoat him. Conte and Romero are to blame for tonight," another fumed. While a third tweeted: "No excuses at all. None from the players and none from the manager. Conte needs to go!"

    And a fourth fumed: "I’ve been Conte out for a while, but we go out here after this f***ing horrific performance you need to just cut ties immediately!"

    Over in Bavaria, PSG raced out of the blocks, and Vitinha had a golden opportunity to level the tie on aggregate when Yann Sommer was caught napping. However, Matthijs de Ligt was the most alert man in the stadium, producing a goal-line block.

    It was the best chance the Parisians had all evening, with Bayern's clash shining through as the clash went on. Eric Choupo-Moting was the difference maker when Leon Goretzka slide the ball across the face of the goal – giving him an easy finish.

    Kylian Mbappe vanished when they needed their star the most, while Lionel Messi failed to replicate the form that rolled back the years in Qatar. Serge Gnabry then smashed the tie beyond any doubt in the 89th minute.

    With half of the draw through, all attention will turn to next week's fixtures.

    Real Madrid are as good as through, with Liverpool needing four goals in Spain. While Manchester City are still level with RB Leipzig as they welcome the Germans to the Etihad Stadium.
