  • 73
    Silva (Man. City) misses the target.

    Silva (Man. City) takes the corner.
  • Substitution
    71
    Balotelli (in) - Džeko (out) (Man. City)

  • 68

    Van Wolfswinkel (Sporting) has an effort on goal.
    What a chance to make it two. Sporting get behind the visiting defence again and the ball is laid back to the Dutch forward in acres of space, but his first time effort lacks the accuracy and Joe Hart gets down well to rescue his team.
  • 62
    Xandão (Sporting) is penalised for a foul on Džeko (Man. City).
  • 60
    Kolarov (Man. City) misses the target.

  • 52
    Agüero (Man. City) has an effort on goal.
