  • The final whistle goes and Man City have staged a thrilling fightback to beat Bayern Munich 3-2 and claim a hugely impressive victory, but it is not quite enough to clinch top spot in Group D.

  • Bayern are holding on to the ball well at the moment without really looking particularly threatening, with both sides perhaps a little unsure how to play the final stages.

  • Man City's final change sees Edin Dzeko make way for Jack Rodwell, which has to go down as one of the more puzzling substitutions as they still need a goal to top the group.

  • Man City hold their defensive line to catch Thomas Muller offside before he can let off a shot, which is straight at Joe Hart anyway.

  • There are appeals for a penalty, from the crowd at least, as Franck Ribery goes to ground in the area under pressure from Javi Garcia and Pablo Zabaleta. The referee waves play on and it looked like the City players were being very careful not to dive in.

  • Pablo Zabaleta hauls down Franck Ribery after missing his initial tackle and is understandably shown a yellow card.

  • Xherdan Shaqiri tries his luck with an ambitious volley from distance, which is powerfully struck but safely held by Joe Hart.

  • Dante is far too casual in defence as he allows Alvaro Negredo an opportunity to power past him and get off a shot, but Manuel Neuer is out quickly to narrow the angle and make the save.

  • Fernandinho is booked following an ugly challenge on Toni Kroos.

  • Pablo Zabaleta does brilliantly to dispossess Franck Ribery and bring to an end a menacing Bayern move.

  • Franck Ribery shows nimble footwork to wriggle his way into the Man City area and win a corner for Bayern.

  • Pablo Zabaleta picks up a knock following a collision with David Alaba as he defends a corner, but he will be fine to continue.

  • Manuel Pellegrini shuffles his pack as Alvaro Negredo comes on for David Silva to give Man City a different dimension up front.

  • Frenandinho gives the ball away in midfield as Bayern keep the pressure on in their bid to equalise.

  • Another change for Bayern sees Xherdan Shaqiri come on for Mario Mandzukic.

  • Bayern are in charge of possession once again as Man City sit back. The Premier League side look more organised in defence now and will be looking to hit their opponents on the counter-attack.

  • Bayern win a free-kick in a dangerous area and Dante rises highest in the area to win the ball, but his header drops over the top.

  • It seemed unthinkable when Man City went 2-0 down so early on, but they are now just one goal away from winning the group.

  • GOAL! What a comeback. James Milner puts Man City ahead at 3-2 with a terrific finish past Manuel Neuer. Jesus Navas crossed the ball from the right and Jerome Boateng missed his attempted clearance, allowing Milner to fire a low effort clinically inside the left-hand post.

  • The Bayern fans are really trying to rally the home players, as David Alaba sends in a lovely pass from the left which just evades Thomas Muller in the middle.
