Kick-Off! We are underway here in the "Venice of the North" in Belgium.
3'
It's the same old start by City where they take control of the ball from the word go and hold onto possession.
6'
City secure the first corner and De Bruyne floats it in. City get it back and then Grealish cannot get to the ball and is down in the box. He is warned by the referee for simulation.
9'
The Brugge supporters believe that a surprise can be in the offing here this evening and there is a fantastic atmosphere inside the ground.
12'

14'
Foden is now down and City have a free-kick in a promising position for De Bruyne. Laporte is into a gap after the set-piece and Rodri was there to tap it in but the call is OFFSIDE and NO GOAL!
16'
Cancelo is looking good with a run down the left but is eventually dispossessed. Grealish is not happy that the ball was not passed to him.

Grealish flies down the right on the counter and floats it into the middle where both De Bruyne and Foden misses it.
30'
GOAL, MANCHESTER CITY, CANCELO! 0-1: Cancelo timed his run to perfection and it's a good first touch and even a better finish through the legs of Mignolet. What a pass from Foden to find Cancelo. Great work!
33'
YELLOW! Laporte is booked after a foul on Sowah. Brugge have a promising free-kick but it amounts to nothing.
34'
That was Cancelo's fourth Champions league goal.
35'
Walker has really looked exceptional down the right. He just need to work on the final passes now.

74'
City continue to dominate and Palmer tries to find Gundogan but Mignolet gets there first. That may have been offside.
77'
Sterling now has his chance down the left. He had options to pass but went for it himself and hits the side-netting. Selfish!
79'
Ederson is forced into action for the first time this evening after a good header from De Ketelaere. That was a BIG chance!
81'
GOAL, CLUB BRUGGE, VANAKEN! 1-4: A consolation goal for the hosts. Cancelo sells himself short as the cross comes into the box and Vanaken hits it home past a diving Ederson. The home fans are HAPPY!
83'
GOAL, MANCHESTER CITY, MAHREZ! 1-5. Mahrez hits his second as City get five. A brilliant pass down the middle from Fernadinho set him up. That looked offside but VAR is happy.
