Group F: Manchester City qualify for the next round after draw against Lyon

Lyon 2-2 Manchester City

Late Aguero strike secured the equalizer as City qualifies for knockout stage (Dailymail)

Late strike from Sergio Aguero ensures Manchester City qualify for the last 16 with one game to spare. 

Lyon wasted several opportunities before Maxwel Cornet scored early second-half to give them the lead.

Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte equalized just after an hour mark with a header but Cornet scored his second of the night 9 minutes before the regulation time to restore Lyon’s lead.

However, Sergio Aguero headed equalizer two minutes later ensures City remain on top the Group F and secured their qualification to the next round.

In the other Group F match Shakhtar Donetsk snatched a late 3-2 victory at Hoffenheim. This means that City needs only a draw in their final game against the already-eliminated German side will be enough to progress as group winners. The French side still need a point in their final game against Shakhtar in Ukraine to progress.
