Today: It was all too easy for Manchester City as they beat Real Madrid 4-0 in the second leg to reach their second Champions League final. We debate whether anyone can stop City from claiming the treble this season, and whether this Pep Guardiola side is his greatest ever.

The panel also ask what it means for Real Madrid. Will Carlo Ancelotti decide it’s time to head off to Brazil? What next for the likes of Luka Modric and Karim Benzema?

Elsewhere, Coventry complete a sky-blue double, winning 1-0 at Middlesbrough to set up an unexpected, neutral-pleasing playoff final against Luton Town.

Plus: Ivan Toney’s ban, a Premier League preview and a Holly and Phil update.

Marina Hyde’s article on the Holly and Phil scandal rocking Football Weekly, as recommended by Barry, can be found here.
