CSKA Moscow 1-2 Manchester City
Scorers: Tosic (33'), Aguero (34'), Aguero (42')
Manchester City escaped Russia with a 2-1 victory over CSKA Moscow on Wednesday night and can thank Joe Hart for the points.
The home side went ahead through Zoran Tosic in the first half as the Serbian latched onto a through-ball and chipped the 'keeper, but a Sergio Aguero brace before the break put City in control.
Manuel Pellegrini's men rode their luck in the second half despite having an Alvaro Negredo goal disallowed and now sit second in the group with six points from nine.
That wraps up our live coverage of City's win in Moscow, and it has to be said they held on in the end. The important part? They held on, as Pellegrini's men move onto six points and take second in the group.
BIG SAVE! MATCH-WINNING SAVE!
The ball falls to Keisuke Honda in the box six yards from goal and Joe Hart knocks it away from point-blank range!
90+1'—Three added minutes signaled as Clichy tidies up a cross from Musa.
Job done? Aguero walks off, Clichy comes in.
88'—Dzeko misses another decent chance from close range! Navas' cross is perfect, but the target man's poked finish flies wide!
85'—CSKA carve out a good chance, but Musa fires into Hart's body, easily claimed. City have five minutes plus added time to hold out.
83'—Dzeko steals in and pokes an effort on goal following some pinball in the box, and it trickles wide. Akinfeev is furious!
Honda fires in a free kick and the knock-down is fired home by Musa is spectacular fashion, but play is called back for a high foot on Yaya Toure.
That is a massive let-off for City.
78'—Now Zabaleta goes into the book for taking down Musa, and Samir Nasri replaces David Silva for City.
75'—Tosic drives at the heart of City's defence and has everyone on alert, but stumbles outside the box and fails to get a shot off.
72'—CSKA fire a set piece in and cause panic, then Tosic fires goalward but the ball trickles wide.
Edin Dzeko has come on for Alvaro Negredo to freshen up the legs on the forward line.
City break down the left, Kolarov's low cross is fizzed in, and neither Aguero nor Silva can convert a free chance from 10 yards!
64'—Yaya Toure goes into the book for hauling down Milanov on the counter. Professional foul.
62'—City are nearly in as Ignashevitch fires a pass straight into the referee, but Negredo's ball into Aguero is too form.
58'—Musa, Doumbia and Tosic look a threat. City look suspect at the back. As we move into the final 30 minutes, expect the away side to get nervier and nervier unless they find a two-goal cushion.
54'—Aleksandar Kolarov fires a free kick wide of Akinfeev's goal after Yaya Toure is fouled by Sergei Ignashevitch.
CSKA Moscow are straight down the other end, and now Kolarov fouls Tosic to give away a set piece outside City's box.
52'—That is some save!
Doumbia covers a lot of ground to reach a looping right-wing cross and Joe Hart does a fine job diving to his left and holding on!
Steven Zuber off, Ahmed Musa ON!
49'—More chaos here, at both ends.
Yaya Toure heads goalward and Akinfeev saves well, then Doumbia rounds Garcia in the box and goes down...no penalty given!
Amazing buildup play from Silva, Zabaleta and Navas. The latter crosses in, Negredo bundles it home and it goes in off the Spaniard's...arm? Booked.
45'—We are underway for the second half!
Sergio Aguero's brace has given City a 2-1 lead in Moscow at the break. David Silva went remarkably close to notching a third with the last kick of the half, but Igor Akinfeev saved well.
44'—Crucial five minutes before half-time? Rather than hold on and get to the break level, Aguero has fired City ahead in spectacular fashion. CSKA Moscow will be wondering what's happened here.
GOAL! CITY TAKE THE LEAD!
Good buildup down the right sees David Silva feed Alvaro Negredo, and in turn the Spaniard chips a beautiful cross into Sergio Aguero. The Argentine heads home despite the onrushing presence of Igor Akinfeev!
