Manchester City into Champions League knockout stages, Atlanta stunned Liverpool

A dominant display from Manchester City yielded only one goal, but that was enough to see off Olympiacos and qualify from Group C

Both teams observed a minute’s silence before the game to mark the tragic passing of football legend Diego Maradona.

Manchester City secured a last-16 spot in the Champions League but failed to turn their complete dominance into more than a 1-0 win over Olympiacos.

Progression to the last-16 of this competition is secured with a 100 per cent record. Topping the group looks fairly certain too. Of course, qualification to that particular round is not their problem in Europe but we will save that focus for another day.

Jesus came far closer to breaking the deadlock on the half-hour mark, racing in behind before seeing his shot blocked away by the defiant Sa.

The opener finally arrived in the 36th minute, Foden converting from Raheem Sterling’s back-heeled assist after City’s slick play had Olympiacos chasing shadows.

In other Champions League match, Liverpool lost at home to anAtalanta side they routed justthree weeks earlier on a dismalnight for Jurgen Klopp’s men atAnfield.

Liverpool missed the chance to secure their place in the Champions League knockout stage as they slipped to a shock 2-0 defeat to Atalanta.

Also in other match, Atletico Madrid huffed and puffed against Lokomotiv Moscow but had to a settle for a disappointing 0-0 home draw in the Champions League on Wednesday which left them with plenty to do if they are to reach the knockout stages.
