Match Highlights View More Below

City’s Champions League hopes hang by a thread after this defeat in Italy.

Bayern Munich must be beaten at the Etihad Stadium for City to have any chance of progression, and they will have to rely on Villarreal drawing with Napoli or better.

There was no shame for City, only regret at lapses in concentration that allowed the classy Cavani in on two occasions. In many respects this was an old-school European tie, a titanic tussle in a full, noisy stadium but City came up just short.

Mancini rang the changes, as had been his pattern throughout the Champions League group stage. Zabaleta and Kolarov were the preferred full-backs, with no place for Richards on the bench.
