Álvaro Negredo scored a hat-trick as Manchester City FC secured their place in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League for the first time thanks to a comprehensive victory against PFC CSKA Moskva.

City seized control of the game after three minutes through Sergio Agüero's penalty and by the half-hour it was 3-0 as the Argentinian, with his second, and Negredo found the net. Although Seydou Doumbia pulled a goal back on the stroke of half-time, Negredo's second after 51 minutes ended any doubt. A Doumbia penalty reduced the deficit again before Negredo completed his treble with a stoppage-time header from James Milner's cross.

Reaction

The first target was to qualify. Tonight we did that. Now we can play our last two games thinking about coming first in the group, which is important.

Of course we are not happy with our defensive performance and the number of opportunities we allowed our opponents. We could have played better.

Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    City confirm their place in the knockout phase with a brilliant attacking display. Two for Sergio Agüero were followed by three for Álvaro Negredo meaning CSKA, who responded with a pair of Seydou Doumbia goals, were helpless. Few will want to face City in the last 16 if they continue to show this clinical nature in front of goal.
  • Goal
    90+2
    Negredo (Man. City) scores!
    With the last touch of the game the Spanish No9 heads in his third. Moments earlier Sergio Agüero was denied his own hat-trick by Igor Akinfeev but the ball squirted to James Milner who popped a cross to the back post where Negredo drove in with his head.

    Doumbia (CSKA Moskva) scores from the penalty spot.
    The Ivorian stutters his run up and sends Costel Pantilimon the wrong way, driving low into the bottom left corner to give his side a glimmer of hope.
