  • City's late rally goes unrewarded then as Bayern close out a deserved 3-1 victory. A European reality check of sorts for City, as the reigning champs dominated for most of the game.

  • Negredo's header inches just wide for City.

  • Silva curls a stunning free-kick over the wall with Neuer stranded, but it bounces back off the crossbar.

  • Boateng sees red after a late challenge with Toure racing through for City. Late drama with a free-kick 25 yards out.

  • Mario Gotze comes on for Ribery.

  • City have got their noses up here. Can Bayern dictate the play?

  • GOAL! Alvaro Negredo grabs a lifeline for City, turning on a pivot beautifully and caressing the ball home off the post. 3-1!

  • The excellent Robben comes off for Shaqiri.

  • Milner curls a powerful effort towards goal with Neuer on hand to stop it brilliantly. The resulting corner is caught by the German no.1.

  • Muller misses two chances to extend Bayern's lead, first stinging Hart's palms and then smashing the crossbar from close range.

  • Kirchoff replaces Schweinsteiger for Bayern.

  • James Milner and David Silva replace Aguero and Nasri as City look to plug the gaps.

  • Nasri is next in the book for a late challenge.

  • Bayern are absolutely dominant. Hart rushes out to an oncoming ball but Muller is first to it. His attempted pass is cut out.

  • From that break Muller cuts it across to Robben, who flicks it into Kroos but it's another good stop.

  • Another corner for City is defended well again and Bayern break.

  • Robben nearly grabs another with a low strike. Good save from Hart but poor defending again.

  • GOAL! Poor defending again from City and Hart could be susceptible. The ball is won in midfield and played early to Robben, who runs directly at Nastasic and is given enough space to squeeze a shot past Hart at his near post.

  • Negredo replaces Dzeko for City.

  • GOAL! City have started the second-half brilliantly, but Bayern get the crucial second. A long ball from Dante falls straight to the boot of Muller after Clichy stopped checking the German's run, and Muller evades Hart to score.
