    • '88 It looks like penalties, and elimination for Olympiacos.
    • '87 Dossevi's corner beats everybody - that was a poor set-piece by a team that needs to win in regulation time.

    • '85 Sinclair breaks down the left but eventually is run off the ball.
    • '83 Samaris beats the offside trap and sets up Kolovos but Boyata makes a good late tackle down the centre.
    • '82 The referee speaks to Samaris and Silva - things are getting niggly.
    • '81 Silva and Milner have been excellent, but Guidetti up front has been anonymous.
    • '80 A Mexican wave goes round the stadium - in fairness, the football has been a bit rubbish in the last few moments.
    • '79 Masuaku is down and Olympiacos win the free-kick. Some nice keepball from the Greeks until Sinclair robs Dossevi down the right.

    • '70 And in more detail...
    • '69 The number of substitutions have made this game rather disjointed.
    • '68 The Greeks are bringing on some subs...
    • '67 Olympiacos need to win this is 90 minutes to have any chance of progressing, remember.
    • '66 GOAL: Hart is out too quickly and Diamantakos rounds the England goalkeeper and shoots home from a tight angle.
    • '65 Jovetic tries a little backheel but cannot find Guidetti.
    • '64 Milner has been excellent since he came on. What a signing he will make if Pellegrini does sell him this summer.
    • '63 Three subs for Olympiacos. Andrea Bouchalakis, Gevorg Ghazaryan are two of them...
    • '62 Milner then joins the attack but is just unable to get on the end of Jovetic's cross.
    • '61 Elabdellaoui is unable to find Dossevi and City clear, then Milner robs Kasami.
    • '59 Kasami makes a 50-yard run but his final pass to Dossevi is poor.

    • '57 Silva gets onto the left foot in the Olympiacos area but Roberto gets a strong hand on the shot.
    • '56 Elabdellaoui chips in from the right but Hart is out to catch. Guidetti then barges into Manolas at the other end.

    • '50 Saviola is off for Olympiacos, replaced by Mathieu Dossevi.
    • '49 Guidetti then shoots wide - a good start for City despite the plethora of changes.
    • '48 David Silva and Micah Richards are also on for City.
    • '47 CHANCE: Jovetic is denied twice by red shirts after being set up by Milner, on as a half-time sub.
    • '46 City kick off the second half. City have brought on Swedish striker John Guidetti.
    • '45+2 Half-time in Minneapolis, and it is Manchester City 1-1 Olympiacos. City seem to be getting a lot of joy down the right with Clichy, and with the chipped ball over the top.
    • '45+1 City break down the right and Nasri is just unable to get a boot on Dzeko's cross. Dzeko then volleys wide Navas' pass.
    • 45' The crowd have just seen that tackle again - they think it was a penalty. Kolarov then fouls Kasami and gets a yellow card.
    • '44 Boyata makes a good tackle to rob Kasami, then Jovetic is played through the centre by Toure but Papadopoulos makes the tackle.
    • '43 Samaris and then Manolas clear Navas' deep corner.
    • '42 Dzeko needs treatment after being fouled in midfield. Navas then wins a corner down the right.

    • '39 Toure sets up Kolarov down the left but hs cross is cleared.
    • '38 Diamantakos sets up Dominguez, but again the Argentine blazes over.
    • '37 Kolarov was perhaps at fault for the goal, as he stepped up but got it wrong and allowed Saviola to stay onside.
    • '36 38 GOAL: Olympiacos reply almost immediately, as Saviola runs into the space vacated by Kolarov and cuts the ball back to Diamantakos to shoot past Hart.
    • '34 GOAL: Jovetic scores again for City in this tournament, his fifth, as he steps over the ball and then beats Papadopoulos before shooting past Roberto.
    • '33 Manolas holds off Dzeko down the right and concedes the throw.
    • '32 We are all rehydrated, and City have the ball. Jovetic gets a yard of space down the left and cuts inside the box, but his shot is kept out by the feet of Roberto.
    • '30 We are having a water break in the heat of Minnesota. 30 degrees, in case you were wondering.
    • '29 Clichy has been excellent so far - he then clears up a deep cross that just evades Diamantakos.
    • '28 Fernando is back to cut out a pass from Saviola, then City break and Clichy gets in another dangerous cross from the right, which is cleared.
    • '27 Jovetic tries to win the second ball after Dzeko is robbed in the area, but Masuaku clears.
    • '26 Jovetic cuts in from the left and feeds Toure, who wraps his foot round the ball from 30 yards but shoots wide.
    • '24 Boyata just manages to get a foot on the ball in the area to deny an Olimpiacos striker.
    • '21 City rather waste a short corner and Nasri's cross from the left is overhit.
    • '20 City have plenty of the ball - Clichy gets in down the right and finds Jovetic, who wins the corner as he looks to find Dzeko.
    • '19 For a player who is more about power and brawn, Dzeko has been brilliant on the shoulder of the last defender. He has made two great runs so far.
    • '18 CHANCE: Navas sets up Dzeko down the right, and the striker rolls off the defender and sets up Jovetic, but the former Fiorentina star blazes over.
    • '17 The ball does seem to be holding up on this pitch - it looks a bit of a nightmare to play on, to be honest.
    • '16 The Olympiacos skipper is over to make the tackle on Navas this time down the right channel.
    • '14 Clichy plays in Dzeko with a pass with the outside of his foot, but the Bosnian miscontrols and Papadopoulos clears.
    • '13 Arthur Masuaku gets past Clichy down the left but his pass is poor and Rekik clears.
    • '12 Centre-back Siovas is unable to continue, so on comes Avraam Papadopoulos for the Greeks.
    • '11 Saviola and Kasami link to set up Dominguez from 35 yards, but that is also way over the bar.
    • '10 Pajtim Kasami tries a shot from distance but it sails over Hart's goal. Kasami scored a cracker of a goal in the Premier League for Fulham against Crystal Palace, if you remember.
    • '9 Siovas went down to the floor after that - the Greek defender may have strained something - I wonder if that is pitch-related.
    • '8 Dzeko gets in down the left but the Bosnian is offside and Dimitris Siovas was over to cover anyway.
    • '7 Nasri tries to get Jovetic in down the left but Olympiacos are able to clear.
    • '6 CHANCE for City as Clichy sets up Toure down the right, but when the Ivorian lays off the ball, Nasri hesitates and drags a left-footed shot wide.
    • '5 The Greek champions look comfortable on the ball in the early stages until Fernando puts in a boot to win back the ball.
    • '4 It is 29 degrees in the afternoon heat of Minneapolis. The pitch does not great - it is grass laid on astroturf.
    • '3 Joe Hart plays a quick free-kick which is intercepted but Saviola is unable to make anything of the opportunity.
    • '2 Olympiacos have a goal ruled out for offisde. Gael Clichy steps up on the one-two to play Alejandro Dominguez offside as he runs on to a Javier Saviola pass.
    • '1 City line up in their dark blue kit, Olympiacos in red and white stripes. The Greek side kick off right to left.
    • 20:09 Michel has gone for a 4-5-1 formation with Dimitris Diamantakos the lone striker for Olympiacos. City line up 4-4-2.
    • 20:07 Manager Manuel Pellegrini waves to the City fans as Yaya Toure leads the team out.
    • 20:06 This is the first appearance of the pre-season for Samir Nasri - given he was not part of the France World Cup squad, that has been quite a holiday for the Manchester City midfielder.
    • 20:03 Closing in on kick-off in Minneapolis - kick off is minutes away.
    • 19:58 In group A, Inter Milan have beaten Roma 2-0 thanks to goals from Nemanja Vidic and Yuto Nagatomo. That means Inter top the group and also means Manchester United need a result against Real Madrid, even a point from a penalty shoot-out defeat, to progress.
    • 19:45 Apparently, the Olympiacos players were unhappy with the playing surface and refused to train on it last night. The groundsmen have been working hard to rectify the dry pitch.
    • 19:40 The Manchester City players are ready to go...
