The Etihad Stadium, Manchester, England.
A scintillating affair in Manchester came to an end amid some controversy as Roberto Mancini's men failed to take three points from a must-win game.
Frank de Boer's side went 2-0 up in the first 20 minutes following slack marking from corners. Siem de Jong bagged both to put City's chances to the sword right from the off.
Yaya Toure fired in a superb volley to restore hope before the break, then Mario Balotelli and Sergio Aguero combined so the Argentine could level matters.
The Citizens had several penalty appeals turned down throughout the game and will feel aggrieved at the result.
