  • 10 mins: Honda, he of a good engine (sorry). Surges forward down the right wing, the ball is crossed by Tosic but the move comes to nothing.

  • 13 mins: Lovely interplay between Toure and Zabaleta creates a chance for Aguero in the box, he attempts the acrobatic kick...but his tame shot goes wide. Replays show that was a clearer chance than it first looked. Should have done better there.

  • 17 mins PITCH WATCH: The hard, dry pitch is clearly not suited for the swift passing game, and the ball often bounces up and down like on a basketball court, but certainly does not look unplayable like it was spoken of before kick off.

  • 19 mins: The powerful Doumbia gets into a one-on-one against Nastasic but the Serb makes a crucial interception. Javi Garcia had misjudged the bounce to allow Doumbia through against his centre-back partner.

  • 25 mins: It's on Honda, looking menacing again, he creates some space on the edge of the area but his shot is blocked by Kolarov. CSKA's best chance of the match so far. It is the long balls that have created panic.

  • 26 mins: Silva goes down in the box, is it a penalty? The referee does not think so, but doesn't book Silva either. Could have been a slight bit of contact but the very theatrical fall did him no favours.
    10/23/2013 4:31:09 PM
  • 30 mins: Negredo has a free shot in the area but can only fire his shot straight at goalkeeper Akinfeev. If it was a header I'm sure he would have put it away...

  • GOAL: CSKA Moscow 1 (Tosic) Manchester City 0
    10/23/2013 4:33:44 PM
  • 31 mins: What was that about a long ball, the goalkeeper punts it forward, Honda heads on, then Tosic, previously of Manchester United, dinks the ball over the advancing Hart. As route one as it gets.
    10/23/2013 4:35:03 PM
  • GOAL: CSKA Moscow 1 Manchester City 1 (Aguero)
