There is not really much analysis to take from this game, which will largely be remembered for the absurd penalty that Manchester City has granted in the first half. The city is fully controlled by the F group, although it is belated that Hoffenheim in Lyon is the city's target, tonight can not win victory. Indeed, Hoffenheim is a marvelous 2-2 draw, returning from 2-0 down to 10 men. That's how things are left. It would be a miracle that the city would not be qualified.
An honest game at Gabrielle Jesus – he has been controversial this season, but yesterday he got a hat-tricks, taking the responsibility twice from the spot before he uses his new belief to attack the courageous chip after his death. Peps Guardiola will be pleased.
Elsewhere there were good performances from David Silva, Fernandinho, Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling (goal, BTW) and Aymeric Laporte, while Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sané fully relax on Sunday's Manchester Derby. Ideal for the night city.

Raheem Sterling speaks for a controversial first-hand fine:
I went to the chip ball and I do not know what was going on. I ended up with peat. I do not think I felt any contact. I apologize to Shakhtar and I'm sorry.
We had to win to keep the pressure on others. The race for Lyon was a wake-up call and Champions League, these things could happen. "
UmCity fans will not be delighted to hear that Manchester has taken the lead of Juventus, although it is the goal itself. Scene!
Full time: Manchester City 6-0, "Shakhtar Donetsk"
Nothing between the two sides.
THE AIM! Manchester City 6-0 "Shakhtar Donetsk" (Gabriel Jesus 90 + 2 – hat-trick!)
The hat-trick for Gabriel Jesus, but a defender from Shakhtar's selflessness: Mahrez Peak Rakitsky pocket, sends Gabriel Jesus through the gate, but Brazil simply throws the ball over Pyatov even. Smoothie. It has not been the most comprehensive performance of Gabriel Jesus, but he's only bloody three times. So you can not complain.
90 min: Added two minutes here. I suggest you move to Juventus against Manchester United because Juan Mata has just got a free kick to offset José Mourinho's side.
88 min: The city might have won another pair since the last update. Mahrez, now operating on the left, crosses the Dreaming Ball behind Shakhtar's defense, and Peatov rushes in and almost gets there. Ismaily cleans and is a good job he did, otherwise Sterling would have been an open goal.
85 min: Ironically, since this substitution, "Shakhtar" has probably been the best. But, attacking more, "Shakhtar" left behind. City-based counterattack with three-one-one. Gabriel Jesus feeds Gundogan, who dinks a wonderful cross with Mahrez and the back of misery. Algeria takes the ball to the bottom of the chest, allows the ball to hit and touches the ball across Pyatov near the post. The goalkeeper probably was able to do better.
THE AIM! Manchester City 5-0 – Shakhtar Donetsk (Mahrez 85)
Mahrez threatened him all night. Now, this is 20 goals in the last five home games of the city, while at the same time they have only recognized one. It would also be the city's largest winner of the Champions League.
81 min: Regardless of what happened to Ederson's hair, I do not like it.
79 min: "Sakter" is a free kick located about 30 meters from the gate. Following on the back of the free kickback center, such as Alex, Ronald Koeman and David Luiz, Rakitskiy step and strike a wonderful stride in the top corner, Ederson is short of making his first major night out.
77 min: Fernandinho, who Silva went to captain's bracelet, had himself withdrawn from Delphi. Former Shakhtar player, he bundled both sets of supporters.
Shakhtar also makes a double shift: Thaison resigns to Alan Patrick (who sounds like he might be from Beswick but is actually Brazil), and Maycon resigns from Wellington Nem.
75 min: Is there anyone Mahrezes capable of doing the work? Exercise goes to Ismailia, either it's a couple of candy but flies.
74 min: David Silva's work is done in the evening. One goal, one assistant, exhilarating. Gundogan gets into leaked applause.
THE AIM! Manchester City 4-0 "Shakhtar Donetsk" (Gabriel James Fig. 73)
As he did in the past, Gabriel Jesus sends Piyatov to the left and strikes the goalkeeper to the right, she broke down, just slipping under the bar. In fact, a sanction.
Penalty for Manchester! It looks obvious …
73 minutes: Stepanenko complains to the referee, claiming that he got one of the balls in the fight for David Silva, but this is an obvious blow.
72 min: Hoffenheim fans, do you want to receive good news or bad news? Always bad news first. Well, you're up to 10 men – Kasim Nuhu, seeing red – but you've got Andrej Kramaric, who has won the three Champions League goals this season.
Lyon 2-1 Hoffenheim, then.
70 min: Cristiano Ronaldo just won the ultimate goalkeeper from the volleyball against the former Manchester United club. Join Barry Glendenning on this if you are interested.
66 min: "Shakter" is the corner! Izmaili won, but Rakitskij did not bother to beat the first man with his cross. Waste
64 min: Does anyone else find that the city's fan singing "Allez, Allez, Allez" is a little grotesque?
62 min: This evening, Júnior Moraes, the striker of the "Shakhtar", is desperately isolated, and is bound by manager Paolo Fonseca. Olarenwaju Kayode, who last season was actually in the Manchester city books (loan to Girona and "Shakhtar") in his place.
60 min: City's first change, Guardiola's one-on-Sunday Manchester derby. Kyle Walker resigned, Danil comes. The Brazilians played this season only in the League Cup, so it's probably quite exciting for him.
58 min: Bernardo Silva does not really have a lot of running, but he somehow touches Mr. Maivijenko forward and crosses, the ball moves through a six-story box where nobody is there to attach it.
56 min: The city is a direct favorite to win this season's Champions League. You can see why tonight. And this is without the five of their most important players: Agüero, Mendy, De Bruyne, Sané and Kompany.
54 min: Another war on the city! Silva turned out to be excellent legs, Krevtsova turned into knots, and the defender of Shakhtar deflects uncontrollably at the back of a creepy span who goes just ahead. Another tense person who has seen them but probably the right call. City fans do not like the word, almost as if they would rather see a rigorous game than this top 4, 5, 6-0.
52 min: Not that fans of the city are excited. "Raise the Champions" to sing the house crowd.
50 min: Penalty for city as a penny is dead! Not given! Ooooooooh, this was probably another wrong call, but perhaps a hangover from what he did in the first half. Sterling played one or two with Zinchenko, Maivijenko took the wrong side and placed her hand over the direction of Sterling's knee – the coal fell slightly off, but it was probably unpleasant.
48 min: 3-0
Wonderful, wonderful solo purpose. Sterling rises the ball up with his back to the goalkeeper, slips out fast, squeezes past Maycon and Stepanenko's pins, and puts the top in the upper right corner. This is FIFA goal, R2 finish. Wow
46 min: I hope that in this second half, "Shakhtar" will attack even more. I know they are missing Marloss, one of their gaming players, but they are not at all a threat.
Do you have more athlete examples? which has warmed your heart over the past few years? Of course, we should not confine ourselves to sanctions that are not granted.

I've always liked West Ham's Paolo Di Canio to pick a ball, not the result when Everton goalkeeper Pols Gerrard was injured in the penalty area. He won the FIFA Award for 2001 for this.
Elsewhere, this is Juventus 0-0 at Manchester United during half-time.

Half time: Manchester City 2-0 "Shakhtar Donetsk"
I hear that Guardiola really tried to talk to a fourth official for not imposing a penalty. However, he did not protest enough not to give it.
44 min: Email from Geoff James. "Sterling can be an outstanding player, but he simply proved that his athletes and ethics are cruel. After the game, of course, he would say that he was" not sure that he was a contact person. "As for officials, there will be no responsibility at all or even a response . "
Not sure that I agree with all this, and Sterling does not have to decide if it was punished. In the worst case, he is unlikely to have a good chance of getting a good press.
It will be interesting to see if the officials still hold their hands. Such obvious mistakes, you are one that should have come out, and just say sorry.
42 min: Brilliant football from the city. Mahrez goes out of the sky, plays a cute ball inside Gabriel Jesus, who led it to Bernardo Silva. The Portuguese shoots, but the Stepanenko block takes it far far.
40 min: Tyson is the only "Shakhtar" player who may seem to be struggling against the city. For some time, the captain gets out of Fernandinho, scrambling in the middle of the city defender, but he does not support until he gets to Kovalenko. The city recovers its form before Kovalenko pushes the statue.
38 min: This is the group, as it is.
35 min: Tempo is out of the game. Cities are cruising.
