Hello and welcome to our coverage of tonight's UEFA Champions League clash between Borussia Monchengladbach and Manchester City, live from the Puskas Arena.
5'
Walker will be keen to impress down the right. He's already opened his legs down the channel and linked with Sterling, who just ran out of room. Plenty of pace down that side for City.
7'
Chance! It's down that side again where City probe with Sterling. He bursts into the box with a clever move but takes a little long to get his shot away. Ginter gets across to block it away.
8'
Wave after wave. Foden picks up the ball inside and unleashes a low strike that tests Sommer but he's equal to it.
10'
Man City have already had 73 per cent of the ball.
14'
Chance! Rodri drives forward after yet more good pressure in midfield. Sterling is making that run in behind again and Rodri looks for him but Kramer spots it and makes an important sliding block.
16'
Sterling again down the right. He's just too quick for them. But once again he dallies when it comes to finishing and Bensebaini makes a fine late sliding tackle from behind to nick it away from the England star.
19'
City are playing very high but this time the Germans play around the press with Laimer charging away down the right in behind Cancelo. He's away into space and looks for the cross into Stindl but Walker shows incredible recovery pace to get back to clear.
23'
City are playing very high but this time the Germans play around the press with Laimer charging away down the right in behind Cancelo. He's away into space and looks for the cross into Stindl but Walker shows incredible recovery pace to get back to clear.
26'
Pep is very animated on the touchline. City are keeping the ball at good speed across the pitch but space is at a premium.
27'
No penalty! Sterling continues to target Bensebaini and gets motoring past him into the box. The defender decides to go to ground and Sterling is upended. He looks at the referee but nothing doing.
28'
GOAL! Cancelo cuts in off the left into a central position and whips a clever ball towards the back post where Bernardo ghosts in unmarked. He doesn't score many headers but directs this one into the far corner.
32'
City now have space to speed into on the counter. Sterling works a three on three down the right and decides to go alone into the area. Ginter stands tall to make an important tackle. For all his threatening moments, Sterling hasn't really produced in the final third yet. Pep is a tad frustrated.
36'
Sterling has now switched wings in order to try and change his luck. For all their territorial domination, City have only had two shots on goal so far.
39'
Chance! Cancelo moves inside again and ends up in the No.10 role. He gets past one challenge then lets fly from 22 yards but his final finish is off target. Over the crossbar.
42'
Foden is now on the right and plays a quite perfect ball for Walker to attack down the line. His cross doesn't find the target though as Ginter is there again to clear. He's been a bus boy. Gladbach just can't get the ball.
46'
SECOND HALF: We're back underway! No changes at the break.
46'
HALF TIME: City are on course for 19 straight wins. It's up to them how many they want to win by.
48'
At times it looks like City have extra players on the pitch such is the relentless pressure they put their opposition under without the ball
50'
Gladbach looks scared of their own shadow with the ball. Kramer has a chance to pick out the willing Laimer down the right flank in behind Cancelo but decides to turn back and slow down the play. City win the ball back.
54'
Bensebani plays a quite brainless ball straight to Jesus who is away on goal. He's only got Sommer to beat but he takes an age to sort his feet out and the defenders get back to block the chance away.
58'
Foden dances into the box and has a chance to whip one into the far corner but decides to slip in Bernardo down the channel who runs out of pitch. A second goal is coming but City need to take more care in the final third.
60'
Zakaria has too much pace for Rodri in midfield and faces up the centre backs. He spots Plea running in behind but can't quite find him with the pass. More care there and he was in.
63'
Close! Gladbach break again with Zakaria down the right as City are asked to do some defending. His cross causes panic at the heart of the defence and Plea tries an audacious flick with his back to goal. The ball loops towards the far corner but a scrambling Ederson sees it just wide.
64'
GOAL! It's the same route to goal as the opener with Cancelo linking up with Bernardo. The defender curls a fantastic ball towards Bernardo near the byline and this time he heads one across goal. There waiting his Jesus who shows his finishing skill by poking a finish into the net from close range.
68'
Substitution: Sterling gets a rest. He's replaced by Mahrez.
72'
Gladbach have only made four fouls in this game. That's not enough against a possession based side like City. It's been too easy for Pep's boys.
74'
Substitution: Embolo is on for Stindl.
76'
Gladbach work it slowly out to the right. Embolo is waiting in the box but he's marked by three City defenders. Easy headed clearance.
78'
Cancelo sends another magnificent ball into the box. Gundogan heads it back for Foden to strike from 15 yards but he doesn't get his head over the ball. Over the crossbar.
80'
Substitution: Double change for City - Foden and Jesus off, Ferran Torres and Aguero on.
83'
Slick, sweeping move from Manchester City. Aguero's deft flicks releases Gundogan away on the counter, he plays it in behind for Torres, who slips Mahrez in on the overlap. His first touch takes him past the Gladbach defender and through on the goalkeeper, but Sommer smothers he near-post drive.
87'
Substitution: Hofmann hobbles off, with Wolf coming on for the closing stages.
90'
Three minutes added on in Budapest.
93'
FULL TIME: City take a 1-0 lead into their home leg. It could've been more for Pep Guardiola's side but they'll take the win.
