Match Highlights View More Below

City’s hopes of progressing to the latter stages of the Champions League were left hanging by a thread following a 3-1 defeat to Ajax in Amsterdam.

There had seemed little chance of defeat after Samir Nasri gave the Blues a deserved 22nd minute lead, but after the hosts levelled on the stroke of half-time, City conceded two sloppy goals in the space of ten second-half minutes that now leave Roberto Mancini’s side bottom of the group.

With Borussia Dortmund beating Real Madrid 2-1 in the other group game, qualification will be extremely difficult after yet another defeat away from home in Europe – the Blues fourth in five Champions League games.

Mancini, who said before kick-off that this was a must-win game, elected to stick with the majority of players who had served him so well in the 2-1 win at West Brom.
