Manchester City is all over Schalke, punching its ticket to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals by halftime of the second leg.

To be fair, the away goals from a 3-2 win in Leg No. 1 had the Premier League champions on very sure footing.

But the 3-0 halftime lead and 6-2 aggregate scoreline after 45 minutes? Yeah, it’s over. Feel free to tag us, Old Takes Exposed.

Sergio Aguero converted an early Bernardo Silva-won penalty before shooting through a crowded room after a Raheem Sterling to make it 2-0 in favor of the hosts.

Leroy Sane would score a pretty goal of his own by blazing past USMNT midfielder Weston McKennie —  playing right back for Schalke — and this one was done-and-dusted.

But the Sterling-Aguero combo was the moment of beauty.
