MANCHESTER CITY came from behind to bag a Champions League win over Sevilla in the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday October 21.

Valencia took the lead when Yevhen Konoplyanka finished a cross from Vitolo. The home side equalised shortly after when a Wilifried Bony shot deflected off Adil Rami for an own goal.

The winner came in the last moments of the match as De Bruyne did well to collect the ball from Yaya Toure and score his fifth goal out of seven games for City.

The victory sees Man City into second place in the group. Juventus are on top with a point in the difference. Sevilla are now three points behind the leaders.

Manchester City´s captain Vincent Kompany looked on from the bench as the English side´s defence appeared exposed on more than one occasion.

The home side created good chances in the first half however the momentum trailed off as the game went on.

Although man of the match Yevhen Konoplyanka did well on the night, Sevilla have yet to win an away game against an English side in any European competition.

Man City´s derby rivals Manchester United will have been watching the European game with interest ahead of Sunday´s Premier League clash in Old Trafford.
