86 min: Another corner of town, but this one is taken by Sterling and erased at the next post. Lyon replaces his replacement from a few moments ago: Fekir left after a quiet night, Bertrand Traoré in his place. It remains Hoffenheim 2-2 Shakhtar in Germany, which means that Lyon and City will go to the round of 16 with a game to lose if things stay as they are.
85 min: Aguero made an amazing leap in imposing against two defenders who each had several inches. The head was exceptional too – he knew exactly where he wanted to lead that ball.
GOAL! Lyon 2-2 Man City (Aguero 83)
City equalize again !!! They win a corner that Mahrez sends into the box. Aguero leads despite two Lyon defenders and makes a beautiful head at the far post.
GOAL! Lyon 2-1 Man City (Cornet 80)
Lyon, it's gone again! Cornet runs between the defenders on Depay's deep ball, removes Laporte's ball with a nice touch and passes the ball past Ederson. This is the fourth goal of Cornet's season and three of them clashed in Manchester City.
78 min: The game seems to be a little off since City scored the equalizer, City seeming to settle for this result. Lyon is definitely looking for victory at the moment.
75 min: We are entering the last 15 minutes, with a match that looks good.
73 min: Lyon substitute: former Manchester United defender, Rafael, absent. He is replaced by Kenny Tete.
72 min: Replacement of Man City: Leroy Sane eclipse after 70 minutes. Fabian Delph replaces him.
71 min: At the other end, a weak shot by Nabil Fekir does not trouble Ederson.
70 min: Aguero passes nearly two defenders into the penalty area before shooting Lopes at the far post.
68 min: "What's wrong with the tactical fouling?" Asks Paul Fitzgerald. "Players get into the field all the time for a variety of reasons. There are many more obscure artistic ideas on a pitch than stopping a counter-attack. "
There is absolutely no problem with tactical fouling. Seeing a coach seem shocked and hurt at the very thought that he might ask his players to adopt him when the film he himself made in a documentary commissioned by his own club is available is this that I find funny.
Elsewhere in group F: It is still Hoffenheim 2-2 Shakhtar Donetsk in Germany. The city remains at the top of the group and Lyon will advance with them if things stay as they are in both games.
Back to the goal of the city. City won a wide free-kick on the right, which Sterling put in the Lyon penalty area. David Silva had a shot and the ball crossed the surface, where Laporte stuck a header in front of the seemingly fake goalkeeper.
64 min: City almost take the lead. Leroy Sane pulls toward the near post, slipping into the process. His effort is saved by Lopes, who falls quickly. The guard manages to grab him in the chest just before he goes past the finish line.
Goal! Lyon 1-1 Man City (Laporte 62)
I may have talked too early. Aymeric Laporte directs the level of the city from a determined room.
60 min: Man City is looking for an equalizer, but Lyon is looking to organize defense with five men chained to the field in a line like City Probe for an opening.
59 min: What a safeguard !!! Anthony Lopes brilliantly saves Sergio Aguero who seemed sure to score with a ball head to the corner from a handful of yards.
56 min: I think it took a small deviation, but it was a very good goal from Maxwell Cornet. The movement that led to it began with a free kick quickly taken from Marcelo to Memphis Depay, broad left, in the heart of the territory of the city. He handed the ball to Cornet, on the right side of the penalty area, about a yard outside. With a shuffy and a shimmy, he makes a shot and sends a curling effort from left foot to Ederson via a small deflection of Zinchenko.
GOAL! Lyon 1-0 Man City (Cornet 55)
Lyon takes the lead! Maxwell Cornet finally scores the ball, passes the ball to the ground in front of Ederson and in the farthest post with a shot from the edge of the penalty area.
52 min: Sane takes the corner and plays Zinchenko at the corner of the penalty area. Its center is cleared by Lyon, who is very retrograde at the beginning of this second period.
50 min: City qualifies for the last third with Zinchenko on the ball. He chooses Sterling, who is ousted from the ball. City wins a corner when Jason Denayer makes a decisive pass to the game, City threatening and dominant.
49 min: Raheem Sterling tries his luck with a diagonal shot from a distance. Marcelo closes it and pushes it away. A weak effort drags away from the far post.
48 min: Another interesting statistic of BT Sport: despite the lack of three sitters and woodwork in the first half, Lyon has not yet recorded a real shot on goal.
Second Half: Lyon 0-0 Manchester City
46 min: City starts the second half with three places behind Laporte, Walker and Stones, while Zinchenko gets on the field in a retreating position. He seemed to float in the back three / four in the first period. Lyon also played with a back three, unlike the corresponding test of the Etihad. Possession in the first half: Lyon 46% -54% Man City. No change of staff at half time.
Some part-time analyzes: "Come now Barry, Fernandinho commits this foul every week," said Andrew Champney of the block that earned the Brazilian a yellow card. "He knows exactly what he's doing. Glad to see him finally booked.
Hush now, Andrew. Manchester City does not make tactical fouling and never have. We know that because Pep recently grabbed his pearls at the very suggestion … um, despite the footage showing that he was instructing his players to insult tactically this bunch disguised as a documentary on the fly stumbled upon Amazon Premium earlier this year.
Halftime: Lyon 0-0 Manchester City
An entertaining first half ends while City is extremely lucky not to be late. Memphis Depay had a miss, while Maxwell Cornet managed to miss two absolute guards, followed by another tough effort that was kept clear of woodworking. Riyad Mahrez should have scored at least one of two good chances for City, which certainly has every chance of succeeding in France.
44 min: Lyon attack again with Memphis on the ball, but he loses possession of the ball. City attacks on the break and Mahrez pulls off.
43 min: Maxwell Cornet hits the ground ball and then the wood with an acrobatic volley after being engaged after a good Memphis Depay center by the left. This is his third time of the evening, but it was quite difficult. Laporte is preparing for City.
Elsewhere in group F: This is Hoffenheim 2-2 Shakhtar Donetsk. In the current state of things, Lyon and Man City would pass to the 16th.
39 min: Fernandinho foul Tanguy Ndombele, taking support on his foot and prompting the Lyon midfielder to play theatrically. Already on a reservation, he escapes the second yellow card which would result in his dismissal. He must be careful.
