So another late goal rescues City from further disappointment in Europe. That De Bruyne strike could be very important indeed in Group D, with the Premier League leaders now just a point behind Juventus following their disappointing goalless draw against Borussia Monchengladbach and three clear of Sevilla.

As for United, they were notably underpar but will be relieved to leave Moscow with a point after Martial atoned for his handball error by scoring with a stooping header. Wolfsburg now top Group B courtesy of a comfortable win over PSV Eindhoven, leaving United second and level on points with tonight's opponents.

No goals at all in the heavyweight clash between PSG and Real Madrid in Paris, but both sides look certain to qualify for the last 16. Benfica and Atletico are now level at the summit of Group C, but Galatasaray lurk menacingly.

That is all from IBTimes UK for now. Thanks for following and goodnight.


Group A

Malmo 1-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Paris Saint-Germain 0-0 Real Madrid

Group B

CSKA Moscow 1-1 Manchester United

Wolfsburg 2-0 PSV Eindhoven

Group C

Atletico Madrid 4-0 FC Astana

Galatasaray 2-1 Benfica

Group D

Manchester City 2-1 Sevilla

Juventus 0-0 Borussia Monchengladbach

In slightly less dramatic circumstances, PSV striker Jurgen Locadia has missed an opportunity to half his team's deficit at the Volkswagen Arena as he sees a low penalty saved by Diego Benaglio.

No winning goal for United as they are held to a draw, but for the second Champions League matchday in succession rivals City have rallied late to defy an otherwise unconvincing performance and secure all three points.

While Aguero was the hero in Monchengladbach, this time record-signing De Bruyne comes up trumps as the £55m midfielder rifles a low shot past the despairing dive of Rico.

Goal: Manchester City 2-1 Sevilla (Kevin de Bruyne)

A late flurry from City as Toure forces a save from Rico and Kevin de Bruyne puts his cross just behind the run of Sterling.

A miserable night for the Kazakhstani group stage debutants as Dedechko turns Juanfran's cross beyond Eric.

Fellaini is the latest United player to be cautioned in Moscow for a blatant trip on Tosic.

Goal: Atletico Madrid 4-0 FC Astana (Denys Dedechko OG)

Fellaini comes agonisingly close to making contact with Martial's knockdown at the back post but Akinfeev is alert to clear.

A third and final substitution for CSKA as Leonid Slutsky sends on Aleksandrs Cauna in place of Alan Dzagoev.

Herrera enters the referee's notebook for a poor challenge on Musa. CSKA have made an attacking change of their own now, with striker Kirill Panchenko on for Eremenko.

One change apiece from City and United as Fernando and Memphis Depay replace Bony and Lingard.

Kolarov had already been thrown on by Pellegrini in place of Pablo Zabaleta.

Around 15 minutes remaining for someone to find a winner in Moscow, while City remain under pressure from a confident Sevilla side whose performance tonight has belied their mid-table position in La Liga.

Malmo also earlier missed the chance to secure all three points against Shakhtar thanks to Pyatov saving Nikola Djurdjić's penalty.

Elsewhere, Kruse has doubled Wolfsburg's advantage after heading in Daniel Caligiuri's centre and Atletico are in cruise control thanks to Torres' second-half chip.

A precious equaliser out of nothing for United as Martial stoops low to powerfully head home Valencia's cross off the inside of the post.

Goal: CSKA Moscow 1-1 Manchester United (Anthony Martial)

Goal: Atletico 3-0 FC Astana (Oliver Torres)

Goal: Wolfsburg 2-0 PSV Eindhoven (Max Kruse)

A rare chance for United to pull level goes begging as Rooney, who was ahead of only De Gea in terms of touches in that opening half, heads Herrera's cross straight into the arms of Igor Akinfeev. That was only their second attempt on target tonight.

Marcos Rojo was lucky not to give away a second penalty for handball minutes earlier.

At the Etihad, Konoplyanka exposes City vulnerable right-hand side once again and crosses for Gameiro but the French international heads wide.

With United toiling in search of an equaliser, elsewhere in Group B Wolfsburg have taken the lead against PSV. Naldo's deep cross is headed back across goal and Josh Guilavogui takes a touch with his knee before seeing a shot saved by Jeroen Zoet. Dost reacts quickest and is presented with the easiest of tap-ins.

Goal: Wolfsburg 1-0 PSV Eindhoven (Bas Dost)

The introduction of Fellaini has seen the Belgian slot into position behind the underwhelming Wayne Rooney, with Ander Herrera retreating back to central midfield.

We are back underway across all of tonight's fixtures as Wesley Sneijder comes within a whisker of extending Galatasaray's lead over Benfica at the Turk Telekom Arena only for the post to intervene.

A hugely disappointing first half effort from Manchester United sees Van Gaal opt to introduce Marouane Fellaini at the break. Bastian Schweinsteiger is the man to make way. A big 45 required now to avoid a second defeat in three European fixtures for the visitors.


Group A

Malmo 1-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Paris Saint-Germain 0-0 Real Madrid

Group B

CSKA Moscow 1-0 Manchester United

Wolfsburg 0-0 PSV Eindhoven

Group C

Atletico Madrid 2-0 FC Astana

Galatasaray 2-1 Benfica

Group D

Manchester City 1-1 Sevilla

Juventus 0-0 Borussia Monchengladbach

Astana's chances of pulling off a shock at the Vicente Calderon appear to be over, with Martinez doubling Atletico's lead via a deflected left-footed shot that looked weak but still found its way past Nenad Eric.

Ex-Arsenal striker Podolski has given Galatasaray the lead for the first time tonight with a lovely improvised finish with the outside of the boot following a great assist from Aurélien Chedjou.

Malmo are also in front against Shakhtar Donetsk as Pa Konate beats two players with a mazy run down the left before teeing up skipper Rosenberg to sidefoot emphatically past Andriy Pyatov.

CSKA have also been forced into a first-half substitution, with Aleksei Berezutski replacing his twin brother Vasili.

A flurry of goals as we head towards half-time, including in Manchester where City were not behind for long. Yaya Toure does well to beat his man and get to the byline, but Rico just about saves Sterling's subsequent shot.

With the danger not cleared, Bony pressures Rami into putting through his own net from close range.

Goal: Malmo 1-0 Shakhtar Donetsk (Markus Rosenberg)

Goal: Galatasaray 2-1 Benfica (Lukas Podolski)

Goal: Manchester City 1-1 Sevilla (Adil Rami OG)

Goal: Atletico Madrid 2-0 FC Astana (Jackson Martinez)

City do eventually fall behind as the hugely impressive Konoplyanka is left all alone to sweep home from all of 10 yards at the back post. Good play from Vitolo, who burst into the penalty area and committed the attentions of Eliaquim Mangala before squaring the ball back perfectly.

Joe Hart is understandably unhappy with the presence of Kévin Gameiro, who was certainly in an offside position just in front of the goalkeeper but was evidently not deemed to have interfered with play.

Goal: Manchester City 0-1 Sevilla (Yevhen Konoplyanka)

Lingard embarks upon a lively run for Manchester United but he is eventually squeezed out. At the other end, Ahmed Musa tries to catch De Gea out with a swift attacking move and a looping shot from distance but the Spaniard is forced into a strong diving save.

Speaking of handballs in the penalty area, André Almeida is guilty of the same offence for Benfica and Galatasaray captain Inan makes no mistake to equalise from 12 yards.

In Madrid, Atletico have the advantage over Astana courtesy of a fine backheel from Saul.

Goal: Atletico Madrid 1-0 FC Astana (Saul Niguez)

Goal: Galatasaray 1-1 Benfica (Selçuk İnan)

City can count themselves fortunate to remain on level terms at the Etihad as Yevhen Konoplyanka finds the near post with an excellent free-kick from the right-hand flank.

Not long after former Manchester United winger Zoran Tosic fires a dangerous low ball across the face of goal, Van Gaal's side find themselves a goal behind after Anthony Martial inexplicably blocks a Mario Fernandes cross with his hand.

Referee Carlos Velasco Carballo is in no doubt and produces a yellow card and points to the spot, but David de Gea is alert to push Roman Eremenko's effort onto the post. Unfortunately for him, however, the prolific Doumbia is on hand to smash home the rebound.

Goal: CSKA Moscow 1-0 Manchester United (Seydou Doumbia)

City are just beginning to turn the screw now as former Sevilla winger Jesus Navas looks to punish his old side with a well-struck effort from distance that goes narrowly over the crossbar. Wilfried Bony, who netted a brace in the demolition of City that was overlooked due to Raheem Sterling's hat-trick, also fires a shot that is saved by visiting goalkeeper Sergio Rico.

No real chances to speak of in the games involving English clubs. CSKA appear content to sit deep and allow United to dominate possession.

What a start for Benfica in Istanbul. Argentine playmaker Gaitan chips Fernando Muslera to give the Primeira Liga champions a very early lead in Group C.

Goal: Galatasaray 0-1 Benfica (Nicolás Gaitán)

A big night ahead for this man...

As for City, Pellegrini has opted to name the same starting XI that cruised to a resounding 5-1 win over Bournemouth at the weekend. Samir Nasri misses out with a hamstring problem, while Sergio Aguero is facing another month on the sidelines with the leg injury sustained during Argentina's World Cup qualifying defeat to Ecuador earlier this month.

Gael Clichy and summer signing Fabian Delph are also still absent, along with David Silva. Aleksandar Kolarov and captain Vincent Kompany are fit enough for the bench, where they are joined by youngsters George Glendon and Brandon Barker.

Kelechi Iheanacho and Patrick Roberts are not registered for the group stage.

The headline team news concerns the match at the Arena Khimki, where Louis van Gaal has opted to hand a surprise start and a Champions League debut to Jesse Lingard. The 22-year-old winger replaces Juan Mata, who drops to the substitutes' bench.

In United's only other change from the side who bounced back from their pre-international break humbling at Arsenal with a confident victory away to Everton, Antonio Valencia replaces Matteo Darmian at right-back.

Ashley Young remains absent, with the trio of Luke Shaw, Paddy McNair and James Wilson also still out.
