Manchester City latest: Aguero at the double while Vieira’s youngsters draw

Champions League Pitch

All the latest news, views and transfer rumours from the Etihad…

Manchester City came from behind to beat CSKA Moscow 2-1 in the Champions League earlier today, after a Manchester United flop threatened to be their undoing.

Zoran Tosic put the Russian side ahead in the 32nd minute, but in-form Sergio Aguero equalised just two minutes later. And the Argentine proved the match-winner when he struck again three minutes before the interval.

The result means City are second in group D, level on points with reigning European champions Bayern Munich. Although the German side could and should notch up another three points this evening as they face Viktoria Plzen at the Allianz Arena.

But all the Blues will care about is the victory that puts them one huge step closer to the knockout stages, with the return leg against CSKA now the match that could all but take them out of the group stage.

City’s senior side did one better than their EDS squad, who drew 1-1 with their Russian counterparts in the UEFA Youth League earlier today.

Patrick Vieira’s side went 1-0 up courtesy of Devante Cole, but they could not find a second and were ultimately pegged back when Ruslan Gordienko headed home.

The point keeps City at the top of their group after three games played.
