Manchester City secured a valuable 2-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach on Wednesday night thanks to this late penalty from Sergio Aguero.
Nicolas Otamendi had conceded a penalty for the visitors earlier in the night, but while Joe Hart spared his blushes, he later equalised for City with a fortunate and deflected effort to swing the momentum back in their favour.
Having secured all three points, Manuel Pellegrini will be relieved that his side were able to get off the mark on what looked like another potentially disappointing night in Europe.
Meanwhile, Sevilla were defeated by Juventus in Turin with Alvaro Morata and Simone Zaza sealing the win, and that leaves the Serie A champions top of Group D with six points from their opening two games.
That in turn means that Unai Emery’s side will be equally as desperate to secure points against City as the two clubs are set to meet in back-to-back encounters next month.
Given Juve’s impressive start, it suggests that City and Sevilla may well be competing for second spot in the group, and that undoubtedly adds further intrigue to their clashes.
The two sides meet at the Etihad Stadium on October 21, with Pellegrini likely to be desperate to claim a positive result at home which will give them the edge in the latter part of the group stages.
