  1. Thank you and goodnight

    And that is that for tonight's Champions League coverage. City were superb, United did what they had to do. One is through, the other has given themselves a great chance of following suit.

    Be sure to join us tomorrow for live text coverage of Chelsea and Arsenal's endeavours in Europe.

    It has been a pleasure. Night.

  2. Record man!

    Real Madrid 1-0 PSG

    Keylor Navas

    Back to tonight and Real Madrid keeper Keylor Navas broke a record.

    He has now gone longer than any keeper to go without conceding a goal since making their Champions League debut. So in his six games, conceding no goals takes him past the 529 minutes Miguel Angel Moya managed when he made his debut in the tournament for Atletico Madrid.

  3. Tomorrow's action

    Jose Mourinho

    And so attention switches to tomorrow night, which sees two more English sides in action as part of another eight-game Champions League extravaganza.

    Arsenal are at Bayern Munich, looking to seal what would be a stunning double over the German champions. The Gunners are bottom of Group F but would go level on points with leaders Bayern if they win.

    Meanwhile, Chelsea host Dynamo Kiev. The Blues are third in Group G with four points, behind Kiev (five points) and Porto (seven points).

  4. Champions League round-up

    Nacho Fernandez

    The only other qualification place decided tonight came in Group A, where 10-time winners Real Madrid sealed their progress with a 1-0 win over filthy-rich French side Paris St-Germain. Real have 10 points, PSG seven, with Shakhtar Donetsk and Malmo (which ended 4-0 to the former tonight)on three each.

    Group C is closing to a conclusion, with Benfica's 2-1 win over Galatarsaray meaning they are top with nine points, two points ahead of Atletico Madrid (who drew 0-0 at FC Astana). Galatasaray have four points, Astana two.

  5. Brazilian's joy...

    Sevilla 1-3 Man City

    Fernandinho posts on Instagram: "Great night for the all city fans. Excellent team performance also. Happy to score a goal."

    Francis Edwards: City beat an average Spanish side and now they think they can win the league but don't want to be drawn against the big teams.

    Sam Sene: Remember how the press were crying about how badly English teams were doing in the Champions League.

    Matt Catchpole: I've grown a beard since #ManUtd last scored a goal - what a relief to finally get a win!

  8. As it stands

    So, United are top of Group B, City are top of Group D and already through to the last 16. 

    United's next Champions League game is at home against second-placed PSV ahead of a final-game trip to Wolfsburg. Both those teams have six points, two ahead of CSKA. As Goldmember said, it's tiiiiight. Like a tiger.

    City's nine points is enough to ensure qualification, with third-placed Sevilla having just three points to their name. Only Juventus (eight points) can prevent them winning the group. City travel to Juve next before facing Borussia Monchengladbach in their final game at the Etihad.

  9. City please Pellegrini

    Sevilla 1-3 Man City

    Manuel Pellegrini with Fernando

    Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini:"It is very important to qualify for the next stage, now we will try to qualify in first position. I'm happy with the way we played, we scored three goals, missed three of four clear chances to score, and we defended well. 

    "I was not happy with the way we were playing in the previous games, so I'm happy with our form tonight.

    "The three midfielders - Yaya Toure, Fernandinho and Fernando - played well, pressed higher and our attack was really prepared. We played with one touch and moved into space, that was the reason we created so many chances."

  10. Post update

    Rooney now has 237 United goals - level with Law and 12 behind the record of Bobby Charlton.

  12. 'We played well'

    Man United 1-0 CSKA Moscow

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, who was told his side had put in a good performance on BT Sport: "A good performance? Thank you for the compliment. It is unbelievable because we have created at least 12 chances and had to wait a long time. Before that they could have scored and then it is a different match. I am happy. We played well."

  13. Norwich man likes Los Blancos

    Real Madrid 1-0 PSG

  14. 2014 winners through...

    Real Madrid 1-0 PSG

    Paris Saint Germain

    Like Manchester City, Real Madrid are celebrating a place in the knockout stages. They had 13 shots to 15 by Paris St-Germain - who hit the woodwork twice - but Nacho's goal got the job done.

    PSG - second in the group - have a four-point cushion over Shakhtar in third, so they should still make it.

  15. Post update

  16. Player reaction

    Sevilla 1-3 Man City

    Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany: "The first feeling is 'finally'. It's a difficult group and to qualify with two games spare is an incredible achievement. We now have to try and finish first in group, so will try to do that."

    Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling: "It was a special goal for me, but most important thing was the way the team played."

  17. 'In Van Gaal we trust'

    Louis van Gaal

    "Louis van Gaal will be feeling smug. When we knew Fellaini was coming on I thought it would be interesting as to who would come off. Maybe Wayne Rooney. It didn't cross my mind it would be Martial.

    "The manager will say look 'this is the guy who can score goals,' so you can absolutely see his thinking. Are these Manchester United fans coming out and thinking 'in Van Gaal we trust' now?

    As I suggested earlier, a toothless attack makes much better headlines than a solid defence. But now that United have ended their 404 minutes without a goal, United can proudly brandish a record of having not conceded in their last four matches. Actually, it is seven and three quarter hours. Fair play.

    Raheem Sterling celebrates

    United's win was nervous. City's was confident and classy. This is a difficult place to come, but Manuel Pellegrini's men burst out of the blocks and then dug in when needed. It is an impressive way to seal your place in the last 16. With two games to go, no less.

  23. 'Job done'

    Man Utd 1-0 CSKA

    Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    Wayne Rooney celebrates

    "Job done. I think Manchester United played very well in the first half, controlled and dominated. But they lost their way in the early period in the second half. Then Anthony Martial was taken off which really shocked this place. Wayne Rooney was there to get that chance that was unmissable. So once again, Wayne Rooney - without  playing brilliantly - wins the game for United."

  24. FULL-TIME

    Man United 1-0 CSKA Moscow

    Game over. Job done. Just. For much of that match, United were struggling, short of ideas and stirring the ire of their own fans. But one Wayne Rooney goal later they are top of the group. Louis van Gaal slams an upturned thumb into the sky. He's happy.

  28. Post update

    Man United 1-0 CSKA Moscow

    We are into the last minute at Old Trafford. Imagine how angry the fans would be now if Rooney hadn't scored to end the 404 minutes they had gone previously without a goal. As it is, they are much more content. In fact, some are so confident they have left already. Some people... I ask you!

  29. SUBSTITUTION

    Wilfried Bony's night is done. He gets a standing ovation from the City fans, which will boost him after coming in for some stick of late. His replacement is Fabian Delph, back after injury.

  36. 'A stunning relief'

    Man Utd 1-0 CSKA

    Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "Do you think there;s a fair chance Louis van Gaal may feel a wee bit smug at the moment. Rooney has not done well in this second half. The fans wanted him taken off not Anthony Martial.

    "What a relief. A stunning relief considering they had only just nearly lost a goal."

  37. GOAL - Man United 1-0 CSKA Moscow

    Wayne Rooney

    Wayne Rooney

    Joy, relief, a mixture of both. United were so nearly behind but now they lead. It is a wonderful first-time volleyed cross from Jesse Lingard, following a cross-field pass, that gives Wayne Rooney just the keeper to beat, which he does with a header into the roof of the net. Louis van Gaal is out of his seat. Of course he is!

  38. Post update

    Man United 0-0 CSKA Moscow

    Never mind hearts in mouths. United hearts were 10 yards above their heads as Seydou Doumbia gets away and runs in on goal. His first effort is saved by David de Gea but the striker seems destined to slot in the rebound until Chris Smalling's slide to block. Old Trafford gives a collective 'phew!'

  39. SUBSTITUTION

    Sevilla 1-3 Man City

    Perhaps Sevilla are happy to see Kevin de Bruyne come on after all. That's because Raheem Sterling, who has ran them ragged all night with his pace and movement, is the man replaced. Little over 15 minutes left in southern Spain. City through as it stands. Three important little words there....

  40. Post update

    Man United 0-0 CSKA Moscow

    Less than 15 minutes to go at Old Trafford. The play is almost exclusively in the CSKA half. But the Russians are holding out. Memphis Depay looks to cross into the box from the left but somehow manages to miss the 18-yard area, instead planting his ball into the stand behind the goal.

    Ooooh! Manchester City almost wrap up this game through Yaya Toure. The midfield powerhouse exchanges passes with fellow Ivorian Wilfried Bony inside the Sevilla box, then curls just past the wrong side of the post. Kevin de Bruyne is stripped and ready on the touchline. Not what Sevilla want to see....

    Man Utd 0-0 CSKA

    Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "The match changed about seven or eight minutes ago. It's now a completely open game and could go either way.

    "What a chance for Wayne Rooney, he couldn't just move his feet quick enough."

  46. Post update

    Man United 0-0 CSKA Moscow

    Penalty?! Is it? No. United denied. Ashley Young drives in to the box from the right and goes down over a sliding tackle. There is a long delay as the referee ponders his decision before the arm points for a goal-kick. The replays are damning for Young, who hooked his leg after the ball was gone. Desperate times...

    City going through as things stand...

    PSV

    Jurgen Locadia has netted forPSVin the other game in Manchester United's group. As things stand, that goal would take them andWolfsburginto the top two positions in the standings, with United and CSKA a point further back. My, that's tight.

    Hernanes has been sent off forJuventusatBorussia Monchengladbach. If that stays at 1-1, Manchester City will go through with a win.

  48. Post update

    Man United 0-0 CSKA Moscow

    Oh Wayne Rooney. It is almost painful to watch. Juan Mata cuts in from the left and his shot-turned-cross finds the United striker courtesy of a deflection off a CSKA defender, but he cannot get the ball out of his feet and then loses control with the goal at his mercy.

    Huge boos from the Manchester United fans. Anthony Martial is off for Marouane Fellaini. To be fair, he has not exactly been effective, but surely you'd rather he was on the pitch when you need a goal? The United fans sing Martial's name in a further sign of dissent to Louis van Gaal's decision.

    Raheem Sterling's pace is scaring the life out of the Sevilla defence. He cuts in from the left, past a couple of players and looks to find the bottom corner but his effort is blocked.

  55. Post update

    CSKA are growing in confidence. Ahmed Musa beats his man on the left and crosses towards Seydou Doumbia in the box, but David de Gea is out quickly to claim ahead of the striker. 

    Just the presence of Doumbia on the pitch has given United pause for thought.

    Big chance for City to take a 4-1 lead. Rahem Sterling crosses low into the box from the left and the ball is struck fiercely by Fernandinho but too close to Sergio Rico, who palms away.

    Soon after, Sterling sets up Bony inside the box, but he cannot get his shot on target and instead shoots wide of the post.

    In contrast to the first half, there has been little goalmouth action in the first five minutes of the second 45 in Seville. The home side, as you'd expect, are pushing forward but City are sitting in and holding them at arm's length. It is a classic, 'see out the first 10 minutes, lads' from Pellegrini.

    To describe that third Manchester City goal as 'route one' would be a bit harsh, but it isn't far off. City keeper Joe Hart made a smart stop from a Sevilla corner, then put his thinking cap on to quickly hoof the ball out to Jesus Navas on the right flank. Navas rode a flimsy challenge from a Sevilla player before scampering down the touchline to tee up Bony.

    In contrast to Old Trafford, City have had no problems in attack. They've scored three goals, could have had more and the only blot on their copybook is Sevilla's goal, for which Nicolas Otamendi was skinned. City in control, though.

    We have a goal and a freakish one at Real Madrid. Toni Kroos lets rip from range and his shot is deflected high into the air. Paris St-Germain goalkeeper Kevin Trapp comes to collect it but gets halfway and thinks 'nope, I ain't getting there.'

    As he backtracks, Nacho volleys side-footed from a narrow angle and the ball rolls into an unguarded net. Trapp was trapped in the middle of nowhere.

    Man United 0-0 CSKA Moscow

    More frustration for United as Wayne Rooney looks to be away before the assistant's flag ends his hopes of clear run on goal. Ashley Young had the whole of the right wing to himself as well. How United could do with a goal before the break. They've had so much of the game that CSKA will take hope from the fact they are still level. Hope that could well become belief later in the game.

  85. Post update

    Sevilla 1-3 Man City

    Down the left, down the right, through the middle. Manchester City are causing a nuisance of themselves all over the pitch. The Blues have peppered the home goal with 15 attempts in just 36 minutes. Sevilla, who are looking to attack down the flanks, have managed just a third of that total.

    Probably not who Manchester United would have wanted the chance to fall to.

    A lovely deep, curling cross from Ashley Young out on the right, drops invitingly onto Marcos Rojo's left peg, but the Argentina defender fluffs his attempt into the hoardings.

    He never looked convincing as the ball arrived and he tried to sort out his limbs in time.

    Wilfried Bony

    Forget digging in, just get down the other end and score! Jesus Navas does superbly down the right, cutting in and picking his man with a low cross. The man he picks out? Wilfried Bony, who makes no mistake with a first-time finish into the corner of the net. He has had some stick of late, the striker (mainly because he isn't Sergio Aguero) but he took that really well. It is his first Champions League goal and it has given City a firm grip on the game again.

    Sevilla's tails are up. Timothee Kolodziejczak (easy for you to say) draws a good save from Joe Hart down to his left before Vicente Iborra finds the side-netting with his follow up. Crucial moments for City, these. They have to dig in.

    Sevilla 1-2 Man City

    Raheem Sterling is up and back on. He's going to carry on. One to monitor. It would be a big blow for City if he has to go off as he's looked very lively.

  98. Goal elsewhere at last...

    Borussia Monchengladbach 1-0 Juventus

    At last we have a goal away from Manchester Ciy's game and it's a key one. Borussia Monchegladbach lead Juventus. That result, even if City win, will mean Manuel Pellegrini's side won't be certainly through after four games.

  99. Man United 0-0 CSKA Moscow

    A flat front two? Wayne Rooney dropping into the hole? Anthony Martial drifting wide?

    It looks like the Manchester United strikers have license to play it fast and loose. One thing for certain though that Martial has been given the chance to play through the middle rather than out left.

    Martial (no.9) and Rooney (no.10) have almost exactly the same average position in the graphic below.

    Benoit Tremoulinas

    It is the game that keeps on giving. Sevilla are back in it as Coke runs down the right and nips past the static, tentative Nicolas Otamendi before chipping up a cross for the unmarked Benoit Tremoulinas to head home unmarked. To make matters worse for City, Raheem Sterling is down injured.

    Sevilla 0-2 Man City

    Sevilla nearly have a goal back. Coke's cross is flicked on Vicente Iborra and put over the bar from close range by Fernando Llorente. He should have scored.

    At Old Trafford, United are looking to keep up the pressure and it almost tells as Daley Blind's long ball into the box just evades the outstretched boot of Juan Mata. CSKA are chasing shadows.

  109. Give me a touch...

    Man Utd 0-0 CSKA Moscow

    Territory is even so far in this one but Manchester United have around 70% possession. Some evidence that CSKA are little threat so far? How about Ahmed Musa - their striker - having only touched the ball to kick off. 

    A quiet 14 minutes or so.

  110. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Sevilla 0-2 Man City

    Wowzers! Manchester City are flying. Jesus Navas, on his return to his boyhood club, almost makes it 3-0! The Spanish winger bursts into the right side of the home penalty area, arrowing a low drive across home keeper Sergio Rico. But Sevilla are saved by the post.

    "There's a really nice buzz about the place. The fans have seen a nice zippy start and it feels like they are quite positive about it.

    "Ignoring who was the home side and the away side. You'd say Manchester United should be overwhelmed in midfield as CSKA have such an advantage of numbers in there. Let's see if they make the most of it."

    Manchester United have began with a 4-4-2 which sees both wingers advanced.

  113. Man United 0-0 CSKA

    Jesse Lingard

    Wayne Rooney looks like he is enjoying his more withdrawn role so far.

    The England captain finds a pocket of space just in front of the CSKA back four, swivels on the ball and picks out a lovely reverse ball into Jesse Lingard.

    CSKA goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev comes haring off his line to smother at Lingard's feet, but promising for United.

  114. GOAL - Sevilla 0-2 Man City

    Fernandinho

    Fernandinho scores

    It is the start that dreams are made of for City. two minutes and 49 seconds after sterling's opener, the forward is clear down the left before crossing low for Bony, whose shot is saved but palmed up for (yes, you guessed it) Fernandinho to head home unchallenged.

  115. Post update

    Sevilla 0-1 Man City

    City are right up for this. They threaten again as Aleksandar Kolarov finds space (in a similar position to where Sterling scored from) but is denied by the legs of home keeper Sergio Rico.

    Wayne Rooney

    Man United are dominating possession. They are zipping the ball around nicely. Wayne Rooney almost latches on to a loose back-pass but Igor Akinfeev is quickly off his line to beat the United forward to the ball and clear. Almost the chance Rooney needed. Almost.

    Sevilla v Manchester City (19:45 GMT)

    Alistair Bruce-Ball

    BBC Radio 5 live commentator in Seville

    "They won't blast the music out when the two teams come onto the field but already you can sense the mood of the Manchester City fans. Immediately, as soon as the ball boys brought out the circular plastic sheeting which has the Champions League logo and sits in the centre circle, that got some half-hearted jeers. Then when the big screens gave us the Champions League anthem, the City fans gave us some booing. I'm 100% sure they are going to do it again."

  138. Misfiring Bony

    Sevilla v Man City (19:45 GMT)

    How do you replace Sergio Aguero? With great difficulty is the simple answer. City splashed out £28m on Wilfried Bony in an attempt to cope with any enforced absence of their Argentine talisman. But, with Aguero currently injured, Blues fans remain unconvinced about the Ivory Coast striker's credentials.

    City boss Manuel Pellegrini and club legend Mike Summerbee have both been defending Bony after home supporters started getting on his back in the narrow weekend win over Norwich. 

    And here's why they are frustrated. Bony had nine shots against the Canaries, managing to hit the target with just one (green arrow), with six missing the target (red arrows) and two being blocked (yellow).

    How does he win them over? A winner in Seville would be a decent start. And not hitting the corner flag with a wayward shot...

  139. Sevilla focus on 'bread and butter'

    Sevilla v Man City (19:45 GMT)

    We've all heard English players and managers trotting out the old 'our bread and butter is the league' cliche. And it turns out that it is also popular with our Spanish friends.

    That's because Sevilla boss Unai Emery has admitted that La Liga, not the Champions League, is his team's pan y mantequilla.

    "The Champions League is a very attractive goal but if we don't feed ourselves every day in La Liga we will go hungry," says the 44-year-old Spaniard.

    "I am thinking about what gives us our daily bread and that is the domestic league.

    "The Champions League is something to be enjoyed but it is here (in La Liga) that we have to win, that is our reality."

    Unai Emery
  140. The boy from Seville

    Sevilla v Man City (19:45 GMT)

    Once upon a time, Jesus Navas could not leave Seville because of chronic homesickness. A proposed move to Chelsea fell through and the Spain winger looked destined to spend his entire career with his hometown club.

    But he overcame the condition through counselling, and then moved to Manchester City in 2013. 

    So tonight he returns to the club where he is still adored, having made 393 appearances for Sevilla over 10 years after coming through their youth system.

    "Jesus Navas is coming home, but he is playing against us, unfortunately," says Sevilla boss Unai Emery. "Hopefully we will face the worst version of him. I wish the best for him individually but not tonight."

    "In the first game against CSKA, we dominated and created chances but did not score one more than the opponent. 

    On reports that Memphis Depay turned up late at the team hotel: "It is unbelievable that they can write that without asking! Morgan Schneiderlin was in the 18 but was ill this morning, so I have to take action. Memphis trained for the first time after injury yesterday, and I have to find out his reaction.

    "He has to go and get his boots from the ground and so I was pleased that he managed to get to the hotel so quickly."

    Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "A big question for me is the lack of pace at Manchester United. Wayne Rooney does not have the pace he used to have. If you look at Juan Mata he doesn't. Martial is not all about pace. So they aren't really frightening teams behind. You bring on the likes of Fellaini and they don't frighten teams either."

    Alan Green

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "For all sorts of reasons, Manchester United need to win tonight and ideally with some style as that's been the criticism over the last few games. It's not criticism that is normally levelled at United. I've been coming here 33 years and I don't remember a period when it's been quite as dull. I sense disquiet from some United fans. A win is not essential but it would make life a lot easier."

  148. Five hours without a goal

    Manchester United v CSKA Moscow

    If you'd only followed Louis van Gaal's team for the last few weeks, you'd be forgiven for thinking they were called 'Manchester United Nil'.

    It would be fair to say they've had a tough time in front of goal of late, failing to score for three games running. Their stubborn defence has helped prevent them getting beat in all three (taking penalties out of it).

    But a solid defence comes second to a mis-firing attack in the 'things worth reporting' stakes, hence the media focus on United's five-hours without a goal.

  149. Pre-match manager chat - Pellegrini

    "For different reasons I chose this starting XI - I think it is best for the game. Tactically, physicality, different things," he tells BT Sport.

    On the threat posed by Sevilla: "They are a very strong team at home, I managed here for nine years so I know how difficult it is to win here. There is pressure from the supporters, especially on the referee. It will be a close game."

    On scoring late winners against Norwich, Sevilla and Monchengladbach recently: "We believe in what we can do in a game, even if we are not playing as well as we can do. We have spirit, character, personality, lots of things needed to win games."

    They are joint second in what is one of the tightest groups in the competition, led by German side Wolfsburg on six points and propped up by Dutch outfit PSV Eindhoven with three.
