City were firmly on top in the first period, dominating possession, playing strongly and creating chances throughout a promising 45 minutes.
Riyad Mahrez opening the scoring for the sky blues on 27 minutes, firing home firmly after measured build-up play, involving Jack Grealish and Ilkay Gundogan.
It was a different story for the hosts after the break, their passive performance in the first half replaced by a much more active display after the break.
There was a build-up of pressure, with two good chances for sub Benjamin Henrichs in the opening stages.

Erling Haaland had a chance to double our lead on 67 minutes as he raced forward before firing wide.
But then came the breakthrough for the hosts on 70 minutes, Josko Gvardiol heading past Ederson from close-range following a ball into the box by Marcel Halstenberg.
City came back from that setback with renewed pressure – and there was a strong handball shout in the dying moments that was dismissed.
But it remained level as the referee blew his whistle following two minutes of stoppage time.
