    Time:90'
    • Manchester City
    • Hamburger SV
    • 90+4 And there's the whistle! City are out! Hamburg are in the semis and the pressure is right back on Mark Hughes.
    • 90+1 Corner to City and Given gets forward for it! But a terrible delivery from Robinho, awful, so deep and nowhere near the danger zone.
    • 90' Four minutes added time being played as Richards goes up front as a makeshift centre forward.
    • 89' Robinho on the ball, in for Sturridge who tries a clever shot with the outside of his boot but side netting!!
    • 88' Robinho plays it to Gelson on the edge of the box but his shot is well over.
    • 88' Sturridge takes this next one but Richards can't connect. Back with Given who goes long. Desperate stuff from City.
    • 87' Kompany to Sturridge, who plays a lovely ball wide to Robinho who wins a corner. Richards can barely move now. Robinho puts it in, Sturridge on the right but his shot is blocked again.
    • 86' Sturridge gets a cross in from the left, half cleared, now Richards on to it, a one-two with Robinho AND RICHARDS IS IN BUT HE SKIES IT! Another superb chance.
    • 85' CITY SUB: Elano comes off to a standing ovation, Sturridge on in his place.
    • 84' Gravgaard heads the corner over.
    • 83' Jansen drills a low ball in for OLIC WHO MUST SCORE BUT AN INCREDIBLE SAVE BY THE LEGS OF GIVEN! What a stop! Richards was all over the place there.
    • 79' Guerrero skins Bridge but Ireland is across to tackle, corner.
    • 78' CITY SUB: Gelson on for Zabaleta.
    • 77' Aogo with a low drive after a surging run but Given tips it behind for a corner.
    • 76' Aogo takes it short and Jarolim can shoot but over! City caught napping.
    • 75' It was always on the cards if you pardon the pun, Dunne blocks Petric with a silly tackle on the wing, pointless as the ball was going out, second yellow and he walks.
    • 74' Great play by Hamburg as Olic is played in on the left after a move started on the right by Pitroipa, but Dunne sticks a size 11 out to intercept and City clear.
    • 72' HAMBURG SUB: Petric on for Trochowski, who looks moody.
    • 69' Robinho on the edge of the box, really crowded but he finds Elano who scoops a delicious ball into Robinho who is in but Rost flies out and Robinho catches him, free-kick.
    • 68' Elano puts the corner into the six yard box and Rost flaps again but Hamburg clear! Still with City, Dunne pops up on the right wing, crosses but blocked.
    • 67' Elano with a free-kick to the left of the box but this one hits the wall and out for a corner.
    • 66' Great one-touch play by City, Caicedo holds it up and almost plays Robinho through but it takes a touch off a defender and back to Rost while Robinho hurls himself to the ground almost comically.
    • 65' Bridge with a good run into space on the left and he sends a curling cross to ROBINHO ON THE EDGE OF THE BOX but he heads straight at Rost! Should have been another!!
    • 62' Zabaleta is down with an upper leg injury...
    • 60' Great play by City, one-touch passing as Elano cuts in and Ireland slides through Caicedo, great first touch, he's in and he rounds the keeper and plays a superb finish in from wide but a late, late flag! Offside! Good decision, he was half a yard past the last defender.
    • 59' Ball over the top is taken beautifully on the chest by Robinho AND ROBINHO IS PLAYED THROUGH AND HE MUST SCORE BUT SAVED BY THE LEGS OF ROST! He was under pressure by Boateng, who pushed him as he shot.
    • 58' Olic to Jarolim who cracks one in from the edge of the box but just over! Given was way off his line there and could only watch!
    • 56' City are swarming forward like killer bees as Zabaleta has a pop from the edge of the box but Rost is well positioned.
    • 55' Corner to City, put in by Elano and Rost flaps near post AND CAICEDO FROM TWO YARDS OUT BUT HE PUTS IT OVER! Horrible miss!
    • 54' Elano takes the free kick and he swings it past Rost who is static and it hits the woodwork and away! What poor luck for Elano! Another brilliant effort but nothing to show for it!
    • 53' Elano is fouled on the edge of the box by Boateng, free-kick in a really dangerous spot...
    • 52' Offside number 372 against Caicedo...
    • 51' Aogo with a good ball from the left but just over the head of Olic!
    • 50' Good play by City, Ireland on the right of the box, neat footwork to play it past a dummy run from Richards and Caicedo slips past two defenders AND RIFLES A SWEET FINISH PAST ROST FOR 2-1! Game on!!
    • 49' Caicedo muscles through but is adjudged to have committed a foul in doing so.
    • 48' Caicedo is offside AGAIN. This is a recurring pattern, City like to hold a high line but he needs to be smarter with his movement.
    • 47' A yellow card is flashed at Kompany who is now suspended for the next European match.
    • 46' Second half underway!
    • 45+1 Half-time, 1-1 on the night, 4-2 to Hamburg on aggregate.
    • 45' Shocking tackle by Dunne on Jarolim, from behind and leaving the Hamburg man in a heap on the floor! He's already been booked and the ref calls him over... Final warning. Lucky, lucky boy.
    • 44' Zabaleta chases down really well and Elano hooks it over for Caicedo who is offside AGAIN! Boateng seemed to be playing him on though.
    • 43' Elano to take then, a big run up and he smashes it on goal AND IT LEAVES ROST STANDING WATCHING AS THE BALL THUNDERS OFF THE BAR AND AWAY! What an effort! Unlucky Elano!
    • 42' Robinho draws a foul from Olic around 30 yards out, straight on and Elano and Robinho both want it...
    • 41' Elano slides the ball down the left with Bridge having kept forward, he cuts inside and drills it low but easy for Rost.
    • 40' Caicedo wins a free kick on the left wing, five yards from the edge of the box, Elano to take... Good delivery near post but headed away from Caicedo.
    • 39' Dunne swings to trip Olic and he is lucky not to get a second yellow - he didn't actually make contact, which probably saved him.
    • 37' Dunne and Guerrero challenge but the Hamburg striker handles, much to the delight of the home crowd.
    • 36' Caicedo is caught offside again and this time he queries it. Looked correct though.
    • 35' Zabaleta wins a free-kick right centre with Trochowski still off the pitch after his collision with Kompany. Elano swings it over, they all miss it and Robinho on the left, one stepover, then another and he drills it low across goal and Rost can't hold on to it but snatches it away from Caicedo at the second attempt!
    • 34' A delay for a couple of minutes as Kompany receives treatmen and changes shirts after getting a nosebleed, while Bridge has a mouth problem...
    • 32' Trochowski gets up with a header but into Given's arms. Bridge let him get away there. Ireland wins a throw on the left wing. Robinho in to Caicedo who holds it up and Elano crosses AND CAICEDO RISES BUT IT ZIPS JUST OVER HIS HEAD!
    • 31' Robinho to Caicedo, Zabaleta started the move and gets in on the overlap but a sliding tackle from Jansen sees the ball bounce off the Argentine and out for a goal kick.
    • 30' Bridge almost gets on to a one-two but he can't control it properly and it's out for a throw.
    • 29' City keep the ball well and win a throw on the right.... the play is spread by Elano to Robinho on the wing but intercepted. City have a throw though...
    • 27' Olic has a pop from a long way out that takes a looping deflection behind for a corner. Trochowski takes it and it finds its way to Mathijsen but his header is blocked by Onuaoha.
    • 26' Elano again threads it through for Caicedo but intercepted.
    • 25' City clear the corner and somewhat calmly play the ball clear...
    • 24' Trochowski with a good hit from the edge of the box after cutting in from the right but parried behind for a corner by Given.
    • 22' Ball from right to left bounces over the head of Mathijsen and Ireland is in but the angle is too tight and he volleys into the ground and side netting.
    • 19' Elano almost plays Caicedo through but intercepted. The crowd are bouncing here at Eastlands.
    • 18' Trochowski with a cross but easy for Given. City need to score twice for extra time...
    • 17' City eventually get to take the spot-kick, Elano over the ball... a casual run-up and a brilliant penalty, in off the inside of the left-hand post and nestling in the bottom right! 1-1 on the night!
    • 15' Elano with a cross from the edge of the D and it strikes Jarolim on the arm and a penalty! That was just inside the area says the ref! A lifeline for City!
    • 13' Dunne booked for City...
    • 11' Pitroipa on the ball on the right, City at sea in defence and he plays it low into Olic who gets a touch AND GUERRERO GETS PAST THE FALLING DUNNE TO PUT IT INTO THE BOTTOM LEFT! 1-0 on the night, 4-1 on aggregate, City with a mountain to climb!!
    • 9' Pitroipa with the ball, he tries a shot which takes a touch off Onuoha into the path of Olic who shoots but wide!
    • 7' City swarm forward and Caicedo plays in Richards but he slips and the Germans survive! A right old mess in the Hamburg box as Rost drops the ball, it's hacked clear and City come again but a great tackle on Elano by Jansen and Hamburg get it clear!!
    • 5' Given claims a cross by Trochowski, City break and Robinho is played through by Kompany but he is offside this time.
    • 3' Caicedo with a great flick but Caicedo is offside. That was close, he looked level.
    • 2' City with some early pressure, forcing keeper Rost to hoof clear with Gravgaard struggling... Pitroipa gets past Dunne who has a swing but completely misses the man, or so says the ref! No penalty, Dunne was lucky there!
    • 1' Match underway at Eastlands!!
    • - CITY NEWS: Kompany starts against his former club but De Jong is ineligible. Robinho starts, with Caicedo alongside him.
    • - Manchester City have a big, big task here but with the away goal in a 3-1 first-leg defeat anything can happen!
