What does it mean? Easy does it for City

The Etihad Stadium was packed out for this one, most hoping for another landslide. However, sporting brought vibrant support, despite their desperate position, and the chirping of two noisy sets of fans was more entertaining than much of the early fare on the field.

Yet these are nights City should savour. Pressure is rarely off in the Champions League knockout rounds.

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain had plenty of it, while Guardiola’s blue machine kept quietly rolling.

A calm night but a good night this, for City, however, you look at it.

What’s next?

City are not back on duty until they face Crystal Palace on Monday evening, in the Premier League.

Sporting also must wait until Monday for their next game, a Primera Liga battle with Moreirense.
