Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    An exceptional second-half performance from City showed the quality that Plzeň are up against at this level. Goals from Edin Džeko, Yaya Touré and Sergio Agüero got City off to the perfect start as they look to improve on last season's showing, where they finished bottom of their UEFA Champions League group. Manuel Pelligrini will be delighted.

  • Substitution
    67
    Milner (in) - Jesús Navas (out) (Man. City)
    A substitition that perhaps indicates Manuel Pellegrini is relatively content to keep the score at 3-0 as the ever-attacking Jesús Navas is replaced by the more defensively able James Milner.
  • Substitution
    67
    Hubník (in) - Hejda (out) (Plzeň)
    This is Roman Hubník's home debut for Plzeň. Could the Czech side turn it around and make it a dream one?

  • 59
    Agüero (Man. City) is flagged for offside.
  • Goal
    58
    Agüero (Man. City) scores!
    He has been City's main threat all night and the 25-year-old has got his name on the scoresheet now. He turned well, on the edge of the area, and his crisp finish left Matúš Kozáčik with no chance. It looks unlikely Plzeň will be able to come back now.
  • 56
    Kolář (Plzeň) is penalised for a foul on Zabaleta (Man. City).
  • 56
    Džeko (Man. City) is penalised for a foul on Hořava (Plzeň).
  • 55
    Nasri (Man. City) takes the corner.
  • 55
    Kozáčik (Plzeň) makes a save.
  • 55
    Agüero (Man. City) has an effort on goal.
    City are carving Plzeň open with ease now and look like they could extend their advantage. The Argentine may feel his performance warrants a goal, but Matúš Kozáčik has proved a tough man to beat so far tonight and once again he makes the save.
  • 54
    Horváth (Plzeň) misses the target.
  • Goal
    53
    Y. Touré (Man. City) scores!
    That is a special, special goal. The powerful Ivorian cut inside off the left-wing, but still appeared to be in a fairly innocous position, 30 metres out from goal, but his right-footed curler flew into the far corner leaving Matúš Kozáčik with no chance. Quite brilliant.
  • 53
    Horváth (Plzeň) takes the corner.
  • 52
    Zabaleta (Man. City) makes a save.
  • 52
    Kovařík (Plzeň) has an effort on goal.
    That is the hosts best chance so far. After some neat work from Daniel Kolář the 25-year-old was in space at the far-post, but he struck his shot straight at Pablo Zabaleta.
  • 51
    Džeko (Man. City) misses the target.
    It's another good chance for the City forward, but his shot from just inside the area goes way over the crossbar.
  • 51
    Džeko (Man. City) misses the target.
    Sergio Agüero again lays off the former Wolfsburg man, but his shot does not test Matúš Kozáčik.
  • 49
    Nasri (Man. City) is penalised for a foul on Hořava (Plzeň).
  • Goal
    48
    Džeko (Man. City) scores!
    City break the deadlock. The Bosnian striker's name may be the one on the scoresheet, but much credit must go to his strike-partner, Sergio Agüero, who showed great strength to hold off Lukáš Hejda before unselfishly laying off the number ten to apply the finish, with a composed left-footed shot.
  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
    City get the second-half underway. They will need to show a more ruthless edge if they are to get the three points tonight.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    The two teams go into the break at 0-0. Both sides will be reasonably encouraged by their first-half displays, though. City have looked bright and will consider themselves unlucky not to be in-front, but Plzeň have shown their threat too and have been very disciplined defensively.
  • 45+1
    Bakoš (Plzeň) is flagged for offside.
  • 45
    Agüero (Man. City) has an effort on goal.
  • 45
    Kozáčik (Plzeň) makes a save.
    More tidy possesion football from the English side creates an opening for Sergio Agüero, but his shot is comfortably saved by the 29-year-old.
  • 42
    Agüero (Man. City) is flagged for offside.
  • 42
    Horváth (Plzeň) makes a save.
  • 42
    Džeko (Man. City) has an effort on goal.
    The striker hits the post for the second time in the match after he got on the end of an Aleksandar Kolarov cross. He looks the away side's most likely scorer.
  • Yellow Card
    40
    Limberský (Plzeň) is cautioned by the referee.
  • 40
    Limberský (Plzeň) fouls.
  • 38
    Hořava (Plzeň) misses the target.
    Plzeň like to get men in they box when the attack and have proven a threat from crosses, without creating a clear-cut-chance yet, this time an overhead kick from Tomáš Hořava goes wide.
  • 37
    Zabaleta (Man. City) is penalised for a foul on Kolář (Plzeň).
  • 37
    Agüero (Man. City) is flagged for offside.

    City have stepped their game up here. Sergio Agüero is first to come close, seeing his shot hitting the post. On the rebound Aleksandar Kolarov struck his shot well, but the Slovakian international stopper was able to make good save.
