Bundesliga side Hamburg SV were beaten 2-1 at Manchester City in their UEFA Cup quarter-finals, second leg on Thursday but survived a second-half siege to hang on for a 4-3 aggregate victory. The German club, who impressed in a 3-1 victory last week, extended their advantage after just 12 minutes when Paolo Guerrero punished some slack City defending. Brazilian Elano equalised with a dubious penalty five minutes later and City went ahead on the night early in the second half through Felipe Caicedo low finish. City hit the woodwork three times, twice with Elano free kicks while Caicedo also had a goal ruled out for offside. The home side had Richard Dunne sent off for a second booking with 15 minutes remaining but still poured forward in a desperate attempt to level the tie on aggregate but Martin Jol's Hamburg hung on to reach the last four.
