"I wanted to show my face. I got it wrong, this is on me, and we are out," he said.

"I am sorry for my teammates. I am sad that we are out. This has not happened many times in my career."

He added: "Now we must show character, because it has been a hard night."

The Premier League outfit opened the scoring in the eighth minute after Varane lost possession to Jesus who set up Sterling.

Karim Benzema pulled one back but in the 68th minute, Varane produced another disastrous moment as he failed to deal with a ball over the top. He fluffed two opportunities to clear the ball with Jesus taking advantage to score.

The Blues face Lyon in the quarter-finals with Real Madrid's 2019/20 season officially in the books.
