With Manchester City falling behind in their group, they needed a win to keep them in the race. Judging by the the result achieved from the match against CSKA it looks as if Pellegrini’s team will need to do a lot more to qualify.
The Champions League saw a dominating start to Man City as Agüero put in a goal in the 29th minute! Milner then decided to double the lead in the 38th. Good start. Good attitude.
All their work appeared to be threatened as Doumbia claimed a goal for CSKA in the 64th minute. The match was played behind closed doors and after a controversial penalty decision, Natcho scored the equaliser in the 86th minute!
City have only gained two points from three group games. If they want to stay in the competition, they’re going to have to fight from here on onwards.
