So just to recap, two games, 12 goals, one hat trick, progression to the last 16 and a dodgy penalty.

A decent night all round


That's the final action of an incredible game.

FULL TIME: Man City 6-0 Shakhtar


GOAL: Gabriel Jesus seals his hat trick. 6-0


GOAL: Mahrez makes it 5-0


GOAL: Jesus smashes it home for 4-0


PENALTY TO CITY:David Silva is fouled in the area and City have a chance for 4-0


GOAL: Raheem Sterling stays on his feet this time and makes it 3-0 to the blues


Kick off: Back under way at the Etihad where the blues lead 2-0


Half time: Blues in control, however the penalty will be a big talking point. Should Sterling have owned up or is it up to the ref to see what happened? Either way, it's 2-0 to City at the break


GOAL:Gabriel Jesus makes it 2-0 from the spot


PENALTY TO CITY: strange one this. Sterling goes down but he seemed to get his foot caught in the turf, no contact but ref gave a penalty


Goal in France and its gone to Lyon 1-0 to the French


GOAL: David Silva scores from a tap in after good work from Riyad Mahrez. 1-0


Kick off: Under way at the Etihad. Remember, if City win and Hoffenheim lose, City progress
