Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    (Aggregate: Manchester City 3-3 Sporting, Sporting win on away goals)
    A brilliant second-half comeback from City was not enough to see them through as they fall on the away goals rule. Two from Sergio Agüero and a Mario Balotelli gave them a 3-2 win on the night but the damage was done in the first 45 minutes.

  • 90+6

    An unbelievable finish to the game! The last chance falls to goalkeeper Joe Hart, who has come forward from the back. He wins a header which is going in to the far corner but Rui Patrício makes a great save to turn it round the post. Amazing.

  • 84
    Džeko (Man. City) misses the target.
    The substitute has a chance as Aleksandar Kolarov drives in a cross from the left but he gets too much on the header at the front post when a flick would have had more chance of finding the net.
  • Goal
    82

    46
    N. de Jong (in) - A. Johnson (out) (Man. City)
    An interesting substitutuon from Roberto Mancini who puts on a defensive midfielder for an attacking winger, despite needing four goals. That could lead to a change of shape with David Silva joining Sergio Agüero and Mario Balotelli in attack in a 4-3-3.

    The referee blows for half-time.
    (Aggregate: Manchester City 0-3 Sporting). Simon Hart, City of Manchester Stadium: Barring a miracle, City look like joining their neighbours United in exiting this competition tonight. Booed off at half-time, they trail 2-0 and have showed nothing to suggest they can get back into this tie.
