Some say he's a defender. Some say he is a striker. All I know is... His name is Vincent Kompany 💙

58. ALMOST TWO! @sterling7 set-up brilliantly by @21LVA but Buffon saves Juve again! Unbelievable stop!  

Officially given as an own goal off Chiellini, but it doesn't matter - City are 1-0 up here! Get in!!    
56. GOOOOAAAAALLLL!!! @VincentKompany!! 1-0!!  
52. Not much has changed in terms of the ebb and flow of the game so far in the second half. How would you swap things around? 
There are 50,363 inside the Etihad Stadium for tonight's game. Thank you for your support!    
MATCH SHOT: @Sagnaofficial challenges Alvaro Morata.    
45. Back under way at the Etihad with @juventusfc getting us under way. No changes at the break. Come on City!    
It was billed as Toure v Pogba but Fernandinho stealing the midfield show. So sharp in those last couple of yards when closing down.
Much like a bus from Juve, stalling our game. City chances were encouraging, just need to play the attacking game we always do. #cityview
fernandinho is our best player by far this match. need to up the tempo. #cityview  
Let's have your thoughts on the first 45 using #cityview now! What would you change? What has pleased you so far?    
HT: 0-0 at the break. @sterling7's early chance and @fernandinho's effort the closest we've come.  
44. Closing stages of the first half. No goals yet, but plenty of attacking intent. Thoughts as we approach the break?    
He's had a brilliant start to the season!    
@fernandinho has been our best player so far by a country mile   #CTID
fernandinho a whisker away from opening the scoring with a ferocious half volley! Did you think that was in?!

A great atmosphere inside the City of Manchester Stadium. Plenty of attacking intent from both sides.
34. CHANCE! Brilliant low ball in from Kolarov but Bony can't arrive in time to finish. City upping the tempo now!  
32. CHANCE! @21LVA nips in and finds Bony. The Ivorian tricks his way into space but lashes at the eventual shot - well wide in the end.
30. We're a third of the way through. Still 0-0, but it's a finely poised clash so far. Who's edging it you reckon?    
@dlamb75 Sterling needs to get into more pockets of space to receive the ball and run!
Who'd you want to see on the ball more to get us up a gear?    
Far too slow from   so far. Need to up the intensity 
22. Fizzing shot from @fernandinho isn't too far away. You sense City have stepped up in the past few minutes. What do you think?  
MATCH SHOT: The line-up...      #ucl
15. City lifted as @21LVA and Bony combine and the Blues win a corner. Pretty even game so far, would you agree?  
Good result in the youth champions league! Good luck to the boys in the start of the new campaign! 
11. Pogba lurking at the back post and finishes well past Hart put no goal given... offside! Correct decision?  
10. The early @sterling7 chance and resulting save from Buffon the closest we've come to a goal as yet.
5. Pogba shapes up to hit a volley towards goal but @Sagnaofficial blocks well. What do you think to the start of this game?  
2. CHANCE! Huge save from Buffon to deny @sterling7 an early goal after @YayaToure's burst through.  
0. And we are off! @21LVA and Wilfried Bony get City's #UCL campaign under way!
