Manchester City FC came from two goals behind to bring FC Bayern München's ten-match winning run in the UEFA Champions League to an end.

Early goals from Thomas Müller and Mario Götze looked to have set the holders on course for an impressive six victories from as many Group D matches. Instead David Silva's first-half response, an Aleksandar Kolarov penalty and James Milner's third turned the tables on the hosts in the second period, though ultimately it was not enough to topple the Bundesliga giants from the top of the section.

Match in 5

  • City comeback ends Bayern's ten-match winning run
  • Visitors prevail but fail to take Group D top spot
  • Silva, Kolarov and Milner inspire City to overturn 2-0 deficit
  • Bayern suffer first group stage home defeat in four years
  • Both teams await round of 16 draw on 16 December

Reaction

The penalty obviously hurt our game plan but in the end we have to be satisfied that this result was enough to secure top spot in the group.

The aim was to come here and put in a good performance. To come back after that bad start shows a lot of the character in the dressing room.
