DECEMBER 7

2011: Despite City's chances of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League being slim, Roberto Mancini's side swept aside group leaders, Bayern Munich thanks to a stunning first half strike from David Silva, and a second half goal from Yaya Toure.

City broke the deadlock 10 minutes before half time, as Silva capitalised on a loose ball on the edge of the box before smashing a half volley into the bottom corner to put us ahead at the break.

The dominance did not stop there, as Sergio Aguero then had an shot cleared off the line, before Silva curled an effort from 18 yards just wide of the far post.

Into the second half, it was more of the same from City as we doubled our lead just five minutes after the restart.

A trademark Toure run through the middle allowed him to latch onto Edin Dzeko's through ball, and poke home to deservedly double our lead.

Despite the victory, Napoli's win over Villareal meant our Champions League campaign ended at the group stage. However, our European journey did not stop there as our third place finish ensured we qualified for the Europa League round of 32.
