FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Shakhtar Donetsk and Manchester City.

83'

Substitution

Benjamin Mendy replaces Rodrigo Henandez Cascante (Rodri) for Manchester City.

76'

GOAL!

Gabriel Jesus scores for Manchester City.

Seals it. De Bruyne brings it forward with Jesus on one side and Sterling to the other. He feeds the Brazilian and he gets his goal

67'

Frustration creeping into City's play. Sterling does well again before playing in De Bruyne. He settles himself but shoots wide. 

62'

The home side look completely shot of confidence as it stands. 

61'

Disallowed goal. The ball is eventually bundled home by Sterling. He was offside from the original cross though

57'

The home side are yet again trying to make it hard on themselves. The ball is given away and Gundogan is clear on goal. He perhaps does not see the advancing Andriy Pyatov. It should have been an easy pass inside to Sterling. 

52'

Poor ball almost leads to a third. It is played inside and Gundogan whips in a shot. It is saved and falls to Sterling. His attempt from a tight angle hits the post. 

49'

Moreas is off target yet again. Ederson is caught well off his line as the striker collects the ball outside of the area. He attempts to chip the City keeper but gets it badly wrong and it drifts harmlessly wide. 

46'

Second Half

The second half between Shakhtar Donetsk and Manchester City has started.

Here we go again

45' + 1'

Half Time

It is half-time between Shakhtar Donetsk and Manchester City.

45'

Jesus is then unable to make the most of a through ball but he is offside anyway. 

43'

Bad decision by Moraes. He is fed yet again by Tyson and through one on one. His tough is dreadful and allows Ederson claim the ball. He could have taken it around him with a better touch. 

42'

Almost a third. Jesus intercepts , advances and feeds the ball into Kevin De Bryune. He takes it wide before having a shot. It goes just wide of the post. 

41'

Raheem Sterling comes alive to hare down on goal . He beats his man before feeding Mahrez. The less said the better about the shot. 

38'

GOAL!

Ilkay Gundogan scores for Manchester City.

And it is totally deserved by the midfielder. Mahrez floats past the challenge of his man. He lays it into the path of the former Dortmund man who toe pokes it into the net

34'

Junior Moraes is played through on goal. Ederson is able to block it out. 

32'

Ismaly goes to ground after a tackle in the area. The referee waves to play on. 

28'

Yellow Card

Rodrigo Henandez Cascante (Rodri) is booked for Manchester City.

28'

Yellow Card

Sergio Aguero is booked for Manchester City.

28'

The City defender/midfielder is cautioned for taking down Ismaly Dos Santos. He is found of a tackle or eight. The resulting free comes to naught. 

23'

GOAL!

Riyad Mahrez scores for Manchester City.

Goal or.....? Yes it is. Gundogen sweeps forward yet again and unleashes a fierce shot that comes off the woodwork. It falls to the winger to tap home while the home defenders appeal for offside. He is definitely on and City have the lead. 

22'

Maybe a touch too many. Ilkay Gundogan does superbly to take possession and hold the ball up. He lays it off to Gabiel Jesus but his eventual shot is blocked. 

19'

It opens up for Riyad Mahrez for a shooting chance but he only manages to blast it over. The former Leicester player is having a rare enough outing tonight and would hoped to have made an impression. His team-mates are not especially happy with his choices. 

15'

The home side are constantly playing it out from the back. Is there issues with the keeper's kicking? If not, they risk the City players swarming around them. 

13'

Manchester City are overplaying it a tad at the moment. Instead of having a shot or sending in a cross, Oleksander Zinchenko gives away a foul. 

10'

The home side are beginning to come back into the game after a shakey opening period. Junior Moraes sets up himself for a shooting chance but it is blocked out by Rodri

1'
