Bayern Munich to put Manchester misery behind them with trip to Berlin

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola was disappointed his side couldn't hold out against Manchester City but said he was proud of his players for their efforts in the 3-2 loss.

As a legendary Canadian musician may have said: "First we take Manchester, then we take Berlin."

Bayern Munich can take mainly positives from their trip to the Etihad, despite slipping to a first defeat of the season (in their 19th competitive game) in a five-goal thriller against the "noisy neighbours" Manchester City.

Glossing over three glaring errors, after going a goal and a man down, it was an absolutely brilliant performance in Manchester. This Bayern side seemed to thrive on the challenge...

Sergio Aguero proves he is the man who can keep Man City in Europe

Sergio Aguero scored a hat trick to lead Manchester City to victory against 10-man Bayern Munich.

MANCHESTER, England -- Snatching glory from the jaws of farce and with typical poise, Sergio Aguero reversed the recent trend of Manchester City's uneasy relationship with Champions League football.

"If you want to succeed at anything, you need a special player in special form, otherwise you just don't win anything," said the relieved City captain, Vincent Kompany. "When he's in that form, he makes things achievable that otherwise wouldn't be."

Player Ratings: 10-man Bayern Munich capitulate in Manchester

Sergio Aguero finished a hat-trick off in stoppage time to propel Man City past Bayern Munich 3-2 in Champions League to keep their hopes of advancing to the next round alive.

Manchester City performed a late "Citizens Arrest" on the Bayern Munich bandwagon to snatch victory in a dramatic five-goal thriller.

Bayern battled bravely back from a goal and a man down to take the lead in Manchester, scoring twice in three minutes through birthday-boy Xabi Alonso and Robert Lewandowski. Ultimately, appalling mistakes from Alonso and Jerome Boateng cost the Reds dear at the death as they slipped to a first defeat in 19 competitive games this season. Here are my ratings on a manic...

Three Points: Man City vs. Bayern Munich

Sergio Aguero finished a hat-trick off in stoppage time to propel Man City past Bayern Munich 3-2 in Champions League to keep their hopes of advancing to the next round alive.

MANCHESTER -- Sergio Aguero's hat trick gave Man City a vital and improbable 3-2 win over Bayern Munich. Here are three points from their dramatic Champions League clash.

Superb Aguero keeps City alive

Where would Manchester City be without Sergio Aguero? In a season when all too many at the Etihad Stadium have underachieved, he has been excellent. And when they needed a hero against Bayern Munich, he was exceptional. He rescued their Champions League dream with magnificent timing and ice-cool...

Attention shifts to Guardiola as Bayern visit England

Pep Guardiola's men seemed to be enjoying their training ahead of the Champions League clash against Man City... well apart from Ribery maybe.

Normally, a clash in Europe's elite club competition between the German and English champions would really get the juices flowing.

However, with the record German champions Bayern Munich already guaranteed top billing in the so-called group of death, a trip to face Premier League title holders Manchester City is not at all a high priority for Pep Guardiola's charges.

I am currently reading and digesting Marti Perarnau's excellent book "Pep Confidential," where the Catalan writer accompanied...

Manchester City likely regret selling Jerome Boateng to Bayern Munich

Manchester City strikers Sergio Aguero and Stefan Jovetic have been passed fit to play against Bayern Munich.

Having triumphed in the Premier League for the second time, Manchester City's obvious objective this season was to finally impress in European competition. A 1-0 loss at Bayern Munich in their opening game of their Champions League campaign wasn't the ideal beginning.

Losing at Bayern is no disgrace, but the nature of the defeat was particularly frustrating. The goal came in the final minute of the game, and it was also scored by an ex-City player: Jerome Boateng's long-range strike appeared to take...
