FC Bayern München stunned Manchester City FC with a 3-1 victory that underlined it will take something special to wrest the UEFA Champions League trophy from their grasp.

City entered this Group D fixture unbeaten in 20 home games in Europe yet Bayern dominated from start to finish, taking an early lead through Franck Ribéry before two quickfire strikes around the hour from Thomas Müller and Arjen Robben. Substitute Álvaro Negredo pulled a late goal back and Jérôme Boateng saw red for a foul on Yaya Touré, but for City it was a sobering night.

The result was important in the group, but it is not decisive. We need to address some things before our next game.

Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Bayern become the first team to beat City here at this stadium in the UEFA Champions League with a dominant display. Despite a late red card for Jérôme Boateng and a flurry of chances for City in the closing moments, The Bavarians were well worth their win and move onto maximum points in the group.
  • Red Card
    86
    Boateng (Bayern) is sent off.
    Yaya Touré gets the ball just ahead of Jérôme Boateng and is through on goal. The defender is slightly late and brings the City man down. The referee sends him off.
  • Substitution

    Götze (in) - Ribéry (out) (Bayern)
  • Goal
    79
    Negredo (Man. City) scores!
    David Silva prods the ball into the penalty area where Álvaro Negredo shows good awareness to turn away from Jérôme Boateng and bend a lovely left foot shot into the far corner from the edge of the area. A superb goal. Is that a consolation or the start of a marvellous comeback?
