  • GOAL! FERRAN TORRES PUTS MANCHESTER CITY AHEAD! 1-0! Two in two games for the Blues man as he taps home an easy finish following a defensive nightmare from Marseille. A back-pass to nowhere, speculatively headed towards Caleta-Car, falls simply to De Bruyne, who threads it back across the box for the Spaniard to drill home past Mandanda at close range. Textbook and all too easy for the visitors.

  • Laporte picks up the first booking of the game for a sliding challenge that could have been better timed. Marseille's free kick comes to very little but the City defender will have to watch his step now.

  • This is less smart work from Amavi now though, who drags Sterling down near the lip of the penalty area and gets a booking. De Bruyne flicks the free-kick on and Zinchenko botches the finish, allowing a Marseille counter that is quickly snuffed out.

  • Marseille make their first change of the game now, just beyond the hour mark, as regular starter Sanson comes on for Rongier in a like-for-like replacement.

  • Gundogan smashes a cut-back ball straight down the breadbasket of Mandanda now. The referee belatedly hands Caleta-Car for a rough challenge in the buildup on De Bruyne.

  • GOAL! ILKAY GUNDOGAN MAKES IT TWO FOR MANCHESTER CITY! 2-0! It's Foden with the sharp delivery off the left wing, cracked towards the right post where Sterling meets it. The England man's header is bounced off Torres, wrong-footing the goalkeeper and the Germany international is there to pounce. That should be the game!

  • That goal has sparked a merry-go-round of changes for these final stages, with City sending on Stones on for Laporte.

  • GOAL! RAHEEM STERLING MAKES IT THREE FOR MANCHESTER CITY! 3-0! Now the scoreline reflects the visitors' dominance and it's a doozy of a finish. De Bruyne is released by some fancy footwork into the right edge of the box and he simply pulls it back for the forward to drill beyond Mandanda. Job done in France for the Blues.
