    MARSEILLE 0-3 MAN CITY

    In the end, it was easy, but Marseille made it a tough task for periods.

    Torres opened the scoring before Gundogan made it two and Sterling tapped in to make it three.

    City top of the group with six points while Porto are second with three.

    PEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

    That's it for tonight!

    MARSEILLE 0-3 MAN CITY

    90+2. Nearly over here in Marseille, three minutes of added time.

    It's been a good night for City, though it was frustrating for long periods.

    They've bagged the three points in the end, though.

    MARSEILLE 0-3 MAN CITY

    89. Marseille, ironically, having their best spell of possession now!

    Well, City have given up I suppose.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    MARSEILLE 0-3 MAN CITY

    86. Payet and Gueye come on for Marseille, but it's a little too late now isn't it.

    City just waiting for this game to end now really.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    THIRD TIME LUCKY

    What a few minutes City have just had. 3-0.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    MARSEILLE 0-3 MAN CITY

    83. De Bruyne receives a pass from Mahrez.

    And the Belgian cruises past a defender before squaring for Sterling to tap home.

    Game. Set. Match.

    3-0 to City!

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    GOOOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLL!!!!

    3-0. RAHEEM STERLING.

    CRUISE CONTROL!

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    MARSEILLE 0-2 MAN CITY

    81. City bopping it around really freely now. Game is won, it's just a matter of seeing it out.

    Marseille haven't really laid a glove on their opponents tonight.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    MARSEILLE 0-2 MAN CITY

    78. Well, it had been coming… again.

    Foden picks the ball up down the left, crosses for Sterling at the back post. He heads it down and Gundogan taps it in.

    Game. Put. To. Bed.

    2-0.

    John Stones comes on for Foden and Laporte goes off for John Stones. Bernardo Silva also comes on for Gundogan.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    GOOOOOOOAAAAAAAALLLLLL!

    2-0 TO CITY! GUNDOGAN!

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    MARSEILLE 0-1 MAN CITY

    76. Ruben Dias now trying to probe in midfield, a second goal would really put this game to bed for the away side.

    Darke jokes on commentary that it's been death by a 1000 passes for Marseille. He's not wrong there.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    MARSEILLE 0-1 MAN CITY

    74. Cancelo providing the trickery down the left and he wins a corner.

    De Bruyne takes and passes straight back to Cancelo but takes it back and his cross is cleared.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    MARSEILLE 0-1 MAN CITY

    72. Sterling breaks forward and passes it to Gundogan in the middle but the German's shot is straight at Mandanda.

    The ball is played forward for Sterling who finds a gap in the defence but the pass is too strong.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    MARSEILLE 0-1 MAN CITY

    70. Marseille still in the game here. No matter how well City are playing they're still playing it risky here with the marginal scoreline.

    They really should go for this second goal now.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    MARSEILLE 0-1 MAN CITY

    67. Some danger for City as Marseille get forward with Sansom and Amavi but City clear.

    Cancelo about to come on for Zinchenko.

    Perhaps a different dimension down the left for City now.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    MARSEILLE 0-1 MAN CITY

    65. Rongier comes off while Morgan Sansom comes on for the home side.

    Benedetto and Payet still on the bench for Marseille, too.

    Foden tries to venture upfield for City but once again he's Dispossessed. Not been his best night.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    MARSEILLE 0-1 MAN CITY

    63. Sterling is fouled just before he arrives into the box and De Bruyne whips a ball in but Zinchenko completely miscues his volley and Marseille clear.

    Good chance for the left-back, he was in plenty of space.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    MARSEILLE 0-1 MAN CITY

    61. Gundogan passes to De Bruyne, who plays on to Sterling but the England forward's effort is blocked and it goes out for a corner.

    He was initially in an offside position, however, and Marseille win back possession.

    Still 1-0.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    MARSEILLE 0-1 MAN CITY

    58. City doing much more of the same they did in the first half, unfortunately for me.

    This is getting pretty tedious. Marseille still can't get out but Pep's side can't get their second goal.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    MARSEILLE 0-1 MAN CITY

    55. City look like they're really missing a striker, to be honest. With Aguero out for another month and Jesus out, this could be a common theme in games to come.

    It's almost as if their players don't know when to arrive in the box when the likes of De Bruyne and Foden get forward.
