Manchester City made it to the last 16 having finished top of Group C in UEFA Champions League despite a 1-1 draw against Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday at Etihad Stadium.

City’s game was a very low start, allowing a more organized Donetsk to dominate the game.

But Ilkay Gundogan scored the leading goal for City from Gabriel Jesus’ great footwork after half time.

However, substitute Manor Solomon levelled the score for Donetsk at the 69th minute.

Sergio Aguero was absent in the match as he is still nursing his thigh injury.

This probably explains City’s poor performance in the match despite Kevin de Bruyne’s midfield energy and Gabriel Jesus’ accurate pass at the second half.

In spite of the poor performance, City managed to emerge top of Group C with 11 points and a spot in the last 16 while Donetsk is second with 6 points.
