Picture special: City break European attendance record

See if you can spot yourself in this exclusive gallery of shots from the opening night of the UEFA Champions League.

Although we lost, it was still a record-breaking night at the Etihad Stadium as we broke a 46-year old Club record for highest European attendance.

The attendance of 50,363 became City’s record attendance for a European game, breaking the 49,665 who attended our game against Athletic Bilbao at Maine Road in 1969.

The early birds: Two of the first supporters to arrive check out their surrounds.

Ready to roll: The UEFA Champions League mascots prepare to do their jobs.

Scarves aloft: The South Stand shows its true colours.

In full voice: Supporters help to create a great atmosphere as the game gets under way.

Good start: City control the first-half and the supporters react in fine style.

Half-time: Fans clap the lads off after their first-half efforts.

Specs appeal: A trio of be-spectacled supporters rue a missed chance.

Goal: City take the lead through Giorgio Chiellini's own goal.

Blue Moon: Juventus turn it around to lead 2-1 but fans never stop believing until the final whistle.

Down but not out: Despite the result, supporters leave the stadium with every reason to believe that City can still qualify.
