Full time across Europe and it has been another action packed night in Europe's premier club competition . Two more wins for British clubs in the form of Man City over Napoli and Liverpool at Maribor.

Tomorrow night it is the turn of Manchester United against Benfica, and Chelsea at home to AS Roma. Join us for coverage of both games, but until then it is goodnight.

Full time: Manchester City 2-1 Napoli

Three wins from three for City as they hold off Napoli. Sterling and Jesus did the damage in the first half but it took a penalty save from Ederson after Mertens' spot-kick to keep the lead intact. Diawara did cut the lead from the spot but City held out to grab all three points.

City running down the clock in the corner. They look like seeing this one out. Not much Napoli can do to stop them.

No doubt about the result of the night....

GOAL! Spartak Moskva 5-1 Sevilla (Promes 90)

Five added minutes at the Etihad.

Full-time: Maribor 0-7 Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp leads Liverpool to their biggest ever European away win. Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah both scored twice against their hapless Slovenian opponents. One of the most one-sided games I've ever watched. A big step towards the last 16.

City are trying to see out this win now, with Napoli doing all the pressing. This would a significant win this one for Guardiola, with his side having to grind out a result while not playing their best.

GOAL! Maribor 0-7 Liverpool (Trent Alexander-Arnold)

A second Reds goal for the young full-back whose goal-bound shot deflects past the helpless Mandanovic. Maribor's misery is nearly over.

GOAL! Maribor 0-6 Liverpool (Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain)

Maribor are all over the place again as Liverpool get their sixth and secure what will be their biggest ever European away win. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain gets his first Reds from Sturridge's pass, much to the delight of Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool just playing out time in Slovenia and saving the batteries for Sunday when they take on Tottenham. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is on for such an event as the Reds push for a sixth.

Amadou Diawara pulls one back for City.

Dries Mertens with a chance for Napoli and as Ederson comes out the Belgian goes for the chip, but he skews the effort horribly wide.

GOAL! Spartak Moskva 4-1 Sevilla (Luiz Adriano 74)

City almost restore their two-goal lead as Jesus rounds Reina and slots home, but the flag is up. Napoli still have hope with 15 minutes to go.

GOAL! Manchester City 2-1 Napoli (Diawara)

Game on at the Etihad. Fernandinho concedes a second penalty are hacking down Faouzi Ghoulam and Amadou Diawara steps up and slides past Ederson.

GOAL! APOEL 1-1 Dortmund (Papastathopoulos 67)

GOAL! Spartak Moskva 3-1 Sevilla (Glushakov 67)

David Silva has taken a knock to the head and is down getting treatment. He'll need a bandage but he looks good to continue.

GOAL! APOEL 1-0 Dortmund (Poté 62)

City get away with one there. Napoli win the ball back inside the City final third and Walker steps across Zieliński and the ball runs out of play. The visitors want a penalty but there is nothing doing there.

GOAL! Spartak Moskva 2-1 Sevilla (Melgarejo 58)

GOAL! Monaco 1-2 Beşiktaş (Cenk Tosun 54)

GOAL! Feyenoord 1-2 Shakhtar Donetsk (Bernard 54)

City miss a glorious chance to go three up as Jesus scampers away and the ball is rolled to Sane, who fires wide.

GOAL! Maribor 0-5 Liverpool (Roberto Firmino)

And there is number five for Liverpool. Coutinho's free-kick is flicked goalwards by Firmino and it flies beyond Handanovic.

Feel like Liverpool could score at will here if they wanted to. Maribor at sixes and sevens trying to keep this at four; never a sentence you want to read.

And now we've resumed in Manchester. This should be some 45 minutes. Napoli well in this.

Back under way in Slovenia and Liverpool nearly extend their lead further as Alberto Moreno drives wide.

Half time across Europe then. I'm off for a brew, but until we get back under way have a look at the half-time scores. Loads of goals around.

Half time: Manchester City 2-1 Napoli

A half of two halves? Well almost. City stormed into a two-goal lead through Sterling and Jesus, and it could have been had Koulibaly not cleared off the line.

Napoli may have missed a penalty to halve the deficit, with Ederson saving from Dries Mertens, but the Italians have been much the better since the episode and should not be written off in this game.

GOAL! Leipzig 3-2 Porto (Marcano 44)

Half time: Maribor 0-4 Liverpool

This has been anything but a fixture deserving of the Champions League. This game has been completely one-sided and Liverpool have strolled to what is an inevitable victory. Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and two for Mohamed Salah have done the damage. And it could easily have been more.

Mohamed Salah celebrates putting Liverpool further ahead.

GOAL! Leipzig 3-1 Porto (Augustin 41)

GOAL! Maribor 0-4 Liverpool (Mohamed Salah)

Goodness knows who scored there, but Liverpool have their fourth. Firmino and Salah arrive at the same time to tap home, get in others way and bundle the ball home. But matter not, the Reds are steamrolling their way to three points.


Kyle Walker hauls down Albiol from a short-taken corner but City survive as ederson saves Dries Mertens' dreadful spot-kick

Maribor allowing Liverpool free reign, and even when the visitors seemingly butcher a presentable chance they give it back. Coutinho is the latest to benefit as he loses the ball trying to dancing around the penalty are but is still able to get a shot away which Handanovic saves.

First time Ederson has really been called into action sees him hold on Lorenzo Insigne's cross from the left. That is all Napoli have offered in the opening 35 minutes.

GOAL! Monaco 1-1 Besiktas (Cenk Tosun 34)

GOAL! Spartak Moskva 1-1 Sevilla (Kjær 30)

City within inches of grabbing a third. It takes a combination of Reina's save and Koulibaly clearance on the line to deny them after Jesus turned and shot goalwards in the box. Napoli have been completely overwhelmed in this half.

Philippe Coutinho celebrates putting Liverpool into a commanding position in Slovenia.

AGAINST THE BAR! City are playing with reckless-abandon and they almost get a third as De Bruyne curls left-footed against the upright. Reina was nowhere to be seen.

GOAL! Feyenoord 1-1 Shakhtar Donetsk (Bernard 24)

Gabriel Jesus celebrates giving Man City a two-goal lead.

GOAL! Spartak Moskva 1-0 Sevilla (Promes 18)

GOAL! Maribor 0-3 Liverpool (Mohamed Salah)

If Maribor are to win a Champions League home game, tonight is not to be it. Mohamed Salah makes it three from Firmino's pass, and now Klopp front-three have all found the net. Turning into quite a profitable night.

GOAL! Manchester City 2-0 Napoli (Gabriel Jesus)

Two English sides into two-goal leads as City double their advantage. De Bruyne is again the provider as he crosses for Jesus, who taps into a near-empty net. The chasm is so large between these two sides.

GOAL! Maribor 0-2 Liverpool (Philippe Coutinho)

The Slovenian's are being taken apart here. James Milner crosses from a Firmino pass and Coutinho volleys into the ground and into the corner, beyond Handanovic. Game over, you would venture.

GOAL! Manchester City 1-0 Napoli (Raheem Sterling)

Lift off for City inside nine minutes. Kevin de Bruyne at the centre of things as he ghosts in behind and though Jesus can't convert the initial cross, Sterling capitalises from the rebound off Koulibaly and hammers home.

GOAL! Feyenoord 1-0 Shakhtar Donetsk (Berghuis 8)

Horrible start for Mitja Viler down the Maribor left who has already allowed Salah past him once and he looks like a real target down his side. The latest Liverpool attack ends with Milner's shot being well-saved by Handanovic.

GOAL! Maribor 0-1 Liverpool (Roberto Firmino)

Well if the manner of the opening goal is any indication, tonight will be a waltz for Liverpool tonight. Mohamed Salah drives past the full-back on the left and crosses simply for Firmino, who breaks a run of five without a win with a simple tap-in.

And now in Manchester, some two minutes later.

Under way in Slovenia.

Just the 842 Liverpool fans in Slovenian this evening but they do their best to be heard as both sides come out before kick-off. Slight delay in Manchester meanwhile as City make their way into the tunnel.

Teams in the tunnel across Europe. Our focus will be on events in Maribor and Manchester, but we'll have news of all the goals as they go in. Coverage of Real Madrid vs Tottenham can be found here.

Liverpool have not won away in the Champions League proper since 2009. Yes, they beat Hoffenheim earlier in the competition en route to qualifying, but can they end their away day blues in this competition?

Sergio Aguero warming up with his Man City teammates this evening. Will we see the Argentine for the first time since he suffered broken ribs in a car accident in Amsterdam?

A good sign for Liverpool?

And in Manchester there is another Liverpudlian link with Pepe Reina lining up in goal for visitors Napoli, who must be quaking in fear having seen Stoke concede seven at the weekend.

If you're looking for links between Maribor and their illustrious visitors tonight, look no further. The Slovenian's Brazilian captain Marcos Tavares is formally of Gremio and was at the club at the same time as Liverpool stalwart Lucas Leiva, who only left the club in the summer.

That was worth waiting for wasn't it?

Maribor have selected their eleven to take on Liverpool tonight. They're looking to create history and win their first group stage match.

Let's hope Roberto Firmino has more success against the Maribor defence.

If indeed Liverpool's title hopes are dead - they could be completely sunk if they lose to Tottenham at the weekend - then tonight is a pivotal game in their season. Win tonight and they have five points from nine and look set for the last 16, but fail to win and they face needing results in their final three games including potentially in Sevilla. Hence why Jurgen Klopp has gone with much of his first choice eleven.

We'll have live coverage of seven of tonight's eight Champions League games, but if you want to keep abreast of Real Madrid vs Tottenham then head this way. The teams have just dropped at the Bernabeu, and they make for very interesting reading.

Napoli's starting eleven is now through the door.

City are unchanged from the 7-2 demolition of Stoke City at the weekend. Fabian Delph remains on the left, with Leroy Sane selected ahead of Raheem Sterling. Sergio Aguero is still only fit enough for the bench.

And now the Man City side has dropped.

Three changes for Liverpool from the weekend stalemate. Karius in for Mignolet, Trent Alexander-Arnold replaces Joe Gomez while James Milner is in for the captain Jordan Henderson.

Here comes the Liverpool team....

Maribor are the reigning Slovenian champions -they have won it six times in the last seven season - but they are only second in the league with the first half of the campaign set to come to a close this weekend. They currently trail the 2016-16 champions Olimpija Ljubljane by two points.

Liverpool are facing their 114th different European opponent tonight but expect a very similar side to the one which was held by Manchester United at the weekend.

Loris Karius will start ahead of Simon Mignolet, but the Reds might be otherwise unchanged. Daniel Sturridge will be bidding for a start ahead of Roberto Firmino or Philippe Coutinho, who had a fast turnaround from their international exploits. Andrew Robertson could return at left-back

Two English sides with contrasting fortunes coming into tonight's games. Man City are goal-hungry and aiming for a third straight win in this competition, which would all but secure them a last 16 berth.

But the opposite must be said of Liverpool who drew a blank against Manchester United at the weekend, and with any title ambitions already looking done and dusted, Europe represents the next avenue.

Elsewhere we have six other games including Real Madrid vs Tottenham, which you can follow via our second live blog, as well as a handful of games from across the various corners of Europe.

All the team news ahead of the 7:45pm kick-offs on the way.
