  1. Van Rhijn is all over Balotelli. It was a stone wall penalty and City are left to rue the decision from the referee to award full time rather than give a spot kick. What a finale and what a game at the Etihad Stadium, with a commendable comeback from City that sees them salvage some hoping of progression to the knockout stages. Thanks for your company tonight and I'll see you all soon.

  2. 90+4

    Balotelli was tugged in the area but right as it happened the referee blows for full time and City are furious!

  3. 90+4

    Last chance for City from a free-kick inside their own half!

  4. 90+3

    A last minute change for the visitors now as Boerrigter comes off for Sana.

  5. 90+2

    Fischer's knock down allows Eriksen to shoot, and he lets rip with a fierce effort that draws a fine save fron Hart.

  6. 90+1

    Three minutes of added time to be played.

  7. 90

    Aguero twists but can't find a team-mate due to impressive Ajax marking. Moments later, Dzeko looks for the run of Nasri but Vermeer snatches it out of the forward's path.

  8. 88

    A terrific ball from Toure finds Dzeko, but just as Aguero pokes the ball home, the offside flag haunts City once more and the goal isn't given.

  9. 87

    Poulsen is hauled off with Fischer taking his place late on.

  10. 87

    Clichy looks to find Kolarov in behind Boerrigter, but the Ajax man spots the danger and concedes the corner. From the cross in, Kompany gets his head to the ball but can't direct it at goal.

  11. 86

    City turn to three at the back once more as Barry comes off for Kolarov.

  12. 85

    Yellow card for Poulsen for a tug on the shirt of Balotelli.

  13. 85

    At the other end, an Eriksen corner finds De Jong once more, but he is marked much better by Clichy this time, and the resulting pressure forces his header over the bar.

  14. 84

    Blind heads away Nasri's delivery, and after neat hold-up play from Boerrigter, Kompany commits a foul on the forward.

  15. 83

    Poulsen slides in on Aguero, coming quite close to winning the ball, but he takes out the City man first and that's a free-kick.

  16. 82

    Kompany sticks out a leg and is fortunate to make contact with Van Rhijn's ball. Ajax's attacking threat has been limited this half but they still look very dangerous when they do venture forward.

  17. 80

    Nasri's free-kick is met by a terrific header from Toure but Vermeer parries it away superbly! A crucial save from the Ajax keeper but the hosts are swarming like flies around the visitors' box.

  18. 79

    Babel clatters into the oncoming Zabaleta, who has been a terrific attacking outlet for his team tonight, winning a free-kick 30 yards out.

  19. 78

    Enoh replaces Schone in the first Ajax changes of the night.

  20. 77

    Lovely stuff once more from the hosts. Balotelli spots Aguero's run, but as Nasri charges into the six-yard box, that flag prevents City once more.
