    Stick with us at ESPN Soccernet for all of the post match coverage and reactions from the managers and the players.

  • 94'

    It's all over! City suffer their third straight defeat, whilst Lech Poznan go top of the group. A deserved result for the hosts, placing further pressure on the future of underfire boss Roberto Mancini.

  • 93'

    Mancini and City are just minutes away from suffering their third successive defeat. What an extraordinary night for the heavy spending clubs.

  • 92'

    What a strike by Mozdzen! It will be a night to remember for the 19-year-old, as his powerful strike from 30 yards beat Given, who could do little to stop that from sailing into his top right corner.

  • 91'

    GOAL What a goal! Mozdzen scores a third for the hosts! 3-1

  • 90'

    Silva blows a massive chance to equalise in the final minute for City, as he misses a shot from six yards out, after a brilliant run and cut back by Johnson.

  • 89'

    Kolarov strikes from distance! Decent effort, but just wide, as Buric will take all the time he needs to take this goal kick.

  • 88'

    City throwing all of their numbers forward, as they win a corner.

  • 87'

    Unbelievable goal, as Krivets free kick looked to have been cleared by Boyata, however his poor defensive header smashed into the back of Arboleda's head, who knew little about the fact that he may have very well just scored the winning goal.

  • 86'

    GOAL Lucky goal for Lech Poznan, as Arboleda stuns City! 2-1

  • 85'

    Five minutes remaining, and you just sense that both coaches are content with the result now, as the sting seems to have gone out of this game.

  • 84'

    Here goes Kolarov on the left, but again, no way through. Kompany eventually loses the ball, as Poznan go forward.

  • 83'

    Johnson uses his pace on the left, and whips a ball in to find Silva, but the attacker fould Henriquez in his headed attempt, and Poznan are awarded a free kick deep in their defensive half.

  • 82'

    Poznan cannot put a pass together in their attacking half, as Johnson attacks down the left for City.

  • 81'

    City have been wasteful going forward in the latter stages of this half. Perhaps the 'influential' substitution of Kompany in the place of Milner has done something to affect the mentality of the City players.

  • 80'

    Kolarov loses possession of the ball far too easily, but thankfully for his sake, Silva picks up the loose ball and sends City forward.

  • 79'

    It looks as if David Silva has joined Adebyaor up front, in a 4-4-2 shape. Just over 10 minutes remain for both sides to make a difference.

  • 78'

    Kompany is introduced, as Milner is withdrawn by Mancini. A bizarre substituion to say the least, especially considering he has Mario Balotelli on the bench.

  • 77'

    Kompany is warming up on the sidelines, and looks to be introduced shortly.

  • 76'

    Kolarov turns a ball away for a corner, following Henriquez's dangerous ball in.

  • 75'

    Impressive run by Kielb once again, but his attempted pass to Rudnevs is poor, as City clear.

  • 74'

    It's anyones game at this point, as Mancini looks to make another substitution.

  • 73'

    Arguably Poznan's best player tonight, Peszko, is taken off for Wilk.

  • 72'

    And City respond straight down the other end, as Adebyaor finds Silva in the middle, only to see his effort cannon off the crossbar! It should be an entertaining final 20 minutes or so..

  • 71'

    Kielb goes on an outstanding run through the City defenders. He makes his way to the edge of the area, but fails to shoot, as he eventually is closed down. Great run by the substitute.

  • 70'

    Kolarov is back, as Mancini introduces the former Lazio man for Bridge.

  • 69'

    Kikut has been all over Adebayor since he equalised, and he wins a battle between the two yet again.

  • 68'

    As the rain starts to fall, Kielb skips past Zabaleta and Boyata easily, and sees his effort sail inches wide of the target.

  • 67'

    Poznan want a penalty! The referee looks at his linesman, and waves away the claims, as play continues. Looked like a penalty to me.

  • 66'

    A promising City build-up is brought to an end, as the hosts attack on the counter.

  • 65'

    Johnson finds Richards with a lovely touch through. Vieira eventually picks up the ball, as City mount the pressure.

  • 64'

    Richards sends a disappointing ball in to the area, as Poznan clear easily. Similar to the first half, the tempo has slightly dropped off, as we near the midway point of the half.

  • 63'

    Another swicth for Poznan, as Stilic is replaced by the 19-year-old Mozdzen.

  • 62'

    Stilic and Rudnevs combine in the box, forcing Given into making a nervy save. City hang on, as they clear their lines.

  • 61'

    Kielb fould by Vieira, and the hosts have been awarded a free kick in a dangerous position. Peszko steps up to take it.

  • 60'

    We've reached the hour mark, with both sides settling in the second half.

  • 59'

    This looks promising for City, as they have put at least 30 successive passes together. Vieira's eventual long ball to Adebyaor is cut out though, as Poznan clear.

  • 58'

    Milner finds Adebyaor with a long ball in to the area, but the striker is forced to stretch to make contact, and therefore gets little power on his headed attempt.

  • 57'

    There's a scramble in the area, as Zabaleta hacks the ball out of midair to clear the danger.

  • 56'

    City are looking a lot more stable and confident when in possession, so the hosts must again control the tempo of the match, if they wish to reclaim the lead.

  • 55'

    Djurdjevic goes into the referee's book.

  • 54'

    Bridge is fouled, as Adebayor takes a moment to receive some instructional talk from Mancini. The coach is looking a lot more relaxed now.

  • 53'

    Poznan make their first switch of the night, as Kielb comes on to replace the goal scorer Injac.

  • 52'

    Manchester City are back on level terms, as Adebayor saw an initial effort tremendously saved by Buric, before hitting the rebound home from close range into the roof of the net. 1-1

  • 51'

    GOAL Adebyaor equalises for City!

  • 51'

    Great start by Silva, as he combines with Johnson and wins his side a corner.

  • 50'

    The hosts are awarded a free kick. Stilic sends the ball in towards Arboleda, but his header is weak and easily claimed by Given.

  • 49'

    Stilic runs at the City defence with real purpose, but Boyata puts a block on the shot.

  • 48'

    Milner whips in a ball from the left, but Buric denies Adebyaor any chance, as he comes from his lines to meet it.

  • 47'

    Mancini will desperately be hoping for an immediate impact from his substitute, as many believe his job could be put under intense pressure, should his side lose a third consecutive time tonight.

  • 46'

    As expected, David Silva is introduced in the place of Wright-Phillips, as the second half gets underway.

  • 45'

    Lech Poznan 1-0 Manchester City: With the English club on course to suffer a third successive defeat, expect Mancini to make some changes at the break. See you in 15 minutes for all of the second half action.

  • 45'

    Rudnevs picks up a yellow card after the half time whistle, after a verbal exchange with the Dutch referee.

  • 45'

    Corner to Poznan, as the fourth official indicates one minute of stoppage time.

  • 44'

    Johnson takes a free kick, and that sums up City's first half. It's well wide of the target, as nothing seems to be going right for the heavy spending club.

  • 43'

    Zabaleta with a lovely ball through to Adebayor, but City lose possession, as the defence wins out yet again.

  • 42'

    If City return after the break with the sort of mentality they are showing now, then they could very well go onto losing this game by a two or three goal margin.

  • 41'

    Adebayor doesn't even make an attempt to win back the ball, after an average ball forward by Milner.

  • 40'

    Stilic takes the free kick, but it's a poor effort, as it sails out for a goal kick.

  • 39'

    City are getting frustrated, as Bridge is the latest player to go into the referee's book.

  • 38'

    Poznan with all of the players in their defensive half, ensuring City have no way of equalising before the break.

  • 37'

    Richards picks up the first booking of the night, after going through the back of Krivets.

  • 36'

    Adebayor and Vieira try to combine, but there's no way through again, as the Polish hosts look an inspired side at the moment.

  • 35'

    Krivets, Injac and Stilic haven taken charge of the midfield, and are orchestrating every Poznan attack. And here they go again.

  • 34'

    It's been an incredible turnaround in this match, as the visitors are now the side that just cannot maintain possession of the ball.

  • 33'

    Stilic takes a free kick from distance, and wins a corner for his side. City need to remain strong here, and regroup as soon as possible.

  • 32'

    Here go the hosts again. The crowd are certainly playing their part in this one, as Stilic almost gets another shot away.

  • 31'

    Injac gives the hosts the lead, and what a sensational stirke it was! The midfielder capitalised on a poor headed clearance from Vieira. Will this spark City in to action?

  • 30'

    GOAL Injac opens the scoring for the hosts! 1-0

  • 29'

    Adebayor plays the ball out wide to Bridge, who crosses back to the striker. Keeper comes to clear.

  • 28'

    Vieira is fouled, and City are in no rush whatsoever to take the kick.

  • 27'

    Henriquez easily takes the ball from the feat of Richards, who reacts with a tough foul from behind. Lucky to escape a card there.

  • 26'

    A very patient build up from City, as they play the ball around the back.

  • 25'

    We're past the half way mark of the first half, and now it's City who are trying to take the sting out of the game, to rediscover the free flowing game they were playing in the earlier stages.

  • 24'

    Here come Poznan once again, as Peszko plays it to Stilic, and the latter tests his luck from the edge of the area. Great effort - but just wide.

  • 23'

    Peszko steps up to take the free kick, and what an effort it was! Inches wide of Given's post, and that could easily have been 1-0.

  • 22'

    Milner fouls Pezko, and Poznan have been awarded a free kick 30 yards from goal. Correct call once again by the referee.

  • 21'

    The intensity of the match has dropped ever so slightly, since City's missed chances, as the home side try to refind their rhythm.

  • 20'

    Rudnevs turns Boyata, and is thorugh on goal, but the referee blows correctly, for a foul on the defender.

  • 19'

    Boyata with a free header from six yards, and how has he missed that! No power whatsoever, as Buric easily takes hold of the ball. It remains scoreless..

  • 18'

    City win yet another corner, as Johnson prepares to take it. After a scramble in the box, Adebayor has a header cleared off the line!

  • 17'

    Brisge has made a fantastic start to the match, working hard at both ends of the pitch. Unfortunately no one is on the end of that cross, as Buric does well.

  • 16'

    Poznan on the break. It's four on four, but Stilic's ball has too much on it, and Given ends the promising buil-up play.

  • 15'

    Wright-Phillips and Milner link up on the right, and the latter eventually wins a corner, after attempting to skip past Arboleda.

  • 14'

    The pressure is mounting by the hosts, however it all comes to waste when Krivets attempts an outrageous long range effort from 40 yards that fails to trouble Given in goal.

  • 13'

    Poznan starting to make an impact in their attacking half, as they win their first corner of the night.

  • 12'

    Vieira sends an early ball in towards Adebayor, but Buric is there to meet it first.

  • 11'

    Despite City's dominance, the Poznan defence have looked quite solid at the back, as Kikut easily dispossesses Adebayor once again.

  • 10'

    Krivets finds some space on the left, and skips past Wright-Phillips, before being dispossessed by Boyata. Rare attack for the hosts.

  • 9'

    The visitors have been in full control of the midfield to this point, as they continue to try and make the first breakthrough of the night.

  • 8'

    Lescott finds the back of the net, however the referee's flag has been raised for offside. Correct decision by the referee.

  • 7'

    Adebyaor! His effort from a sharp angle forces Buric into making a solid diving save. Corner to City.

  • 6'

    Johnson and Milner work well together on the left, but Milner's eventual ball into the area, is turned away well by Henriquez.

  • 5'

    Lech Poznan, coming off their best domestic performance last weekend, just cannot maintain possession, despite the support of their vocal supporters.

  • 4'

    Milner with a great chance to open the scoring! Buric and the home defence do well to deny the midfielder, who found himself on the end of a mazy Johnson run.

  • 3'

    A very slow start to the match, as Bridge, Lescott and Richards play it across the back.

  • 2'

    Given, who is playing only his second club game for the season, rushes off his line to clear a loose ball in the City defence.

  • 1'

    And we're underway...


    City can all but assure themselves of progression from the group stage with a win here in Poland, whilst the hosts will be desperate to maintain their one point buffer over Italian giants Juventus, who host Salzburg tonight.


    Mario Balotelli starts on the bench for City, whilst Carlos Tevez has been rested after just returning from Argentina.


    Adebayor scored a hat-trick in the first leg.
