  • Live Commentary

    Time:90'
    • Dynamo Dresden
    • Manchester City
    • FULL TIME: Man City 0-0 Dynamo Dresden. And a fairly drab night draws to a close. Thanks for joining us!
    • 89' Tobias Muller on for Dynamo.
    • 88' City subs: Evans, Bunn and Boyata all on.
    • 87' A mistake from Evans and Dresden counter but Leistner's shot is easily saved.
    • 86' City subs: Evans, Bunn and Boyata all on.
    • 85' A good chance for Dynamo as it’s pulled back to Fiel but his shot is blocked.
    • 84' Fiel whips it in but Johansen claims.
    • 83' Helan goes in the book for a needless challenge and Dynamo win a dangerous free kick.
    • 81' Weiss has looked enterprising for City since coming on. Poor ball from Razzak drifts out for a goal kick.
    • 79' Weiss crosses the ball in and Subasic nearly heads it into his own net!
    • 78' It all has rather a training ground knock about feel to it and precious few openings being created as the new faces try to settle on both sides.
    • 77' It was Tevez who made way for Scapuzzi.
    • 75' Jungnickel and Leistner on for Dresden.
    • 74' Scapuzzi also on for City.
    • 73' Man City sub: Pantilimon for Johansen.
    • 72' It’s been another rusty looking City display so far but still time to show a little flair.
    • 71' Tevez goes down and wins a free kick. News coming out of Paris is that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will complete his move to PSG from Milan.
    • 70' City sub: Yaya Toure off for Abdul Razak
    • 68' It would be a huge blow if that’s serious for City to lose the player of the year to a serious muscle strain but he looked okay when he went off. Most likely a precaution.
    • 67' Kompany goes down clutching his hamstring. Could be cramp or something more sinister. Karim Rekik comes on in his place.
    • 66' Great ball forward for Weiss but Kirsten tips it wide. So nearly the opener for City!
    • 64' Danger from Dresden but it ends tamely in the hands of Pantilimon. Kolarov crosses and Kirsten claims.
    • 63' City sub: Lopez off for Vladimir Weiss.
    • 62' Man City changes imminent and they certainly need something.
    • 61' Fiel gets inside Savic with ease but Kompany comes across to block.
    • 59' Neither team has upped the tempo since the break. Koch goes down in the hope of a penalty but not even close!
    • 57' City win their first corner but Kolarov’s inswinger is cleared.
    • 56' Toure wins a free kick after a foul by Losilla. City build again.
    • 55' Long shot from Biton saved by Pantilimon.
    • 54' Lopez gets to the byline and crosses but Fiel clears.
    • 53' Kolorov looks for a foul on the edge of the box but it’s waved away.
    • 52' Sergio Aguero is off for the aforemantioned Jelavic.
    • 51' Zabaleta cross easily dealt with by Jungwirth.
    • 50' Subasic and Jungwirth are on for Dynamo.
    • 48' Toure comes forward for City but it’s all a bit cagey still and Dynamo clear easily.
    • 46' The wholesale changes have not materialised as yet.
    • 45' Triallist Mario Jelavic is on for City.
    • We’r e underway again here and let’s hope for a little better than the first half. Mancini, as expected, has rung the changes at the break and brought on some fresh young blood.
    • 45' And that’s half time with City still looking for their first goal of this pre-season campaign.
    • 44' Aguero links up with Tevez who tumbles and looks for a penalty. Far too theatrical and the referee waves it away.
    • 43' Mancini has fielded a strong line-up tonight but may well ring the changes at the break. Bad challenge by Zabaleta on Solga. Only a caution.
    • 41' First half possession: Man City 68% - 32% Dresden.
    • 40' Trojan cynically brings down Lopez and is shown the yellow card.
    • 38' City have laboured in the final third so far and the tempo has really slowed significantly.
    • 37' Trojan looks for a corner but Kompany shepherds the ball out for a goal kick.
    • 36' Kolarov looks for Aguero but Dresden defend well again.
    • 35' Ten minutes to the break and City have yet to impose themselves after a promising first quarter of an hour.
    • 33' Gueye breaks clear and gets his cross in but Pantilimon claims.
    • 32' City are still waiting for their first goal of this pre-season campaign. The last time they scored was Aguero’s winner against QPR.
    • 31' City’s next game is against Besiktas on Friday.
    • 30' There have been sporadic moments but it’s fair to say this match has yet to catch fire after the half hour mark. Aguero is robbed by Gueye and Dresden counter.
    • 29' The City keeper then flaps badly but is pushed and City win a fre kick. Encouraging for Dresden though.
    • 28' Pantilimon spills the ball in front of Pote but recovers to block for a corner.
    • 27' Trojan whips it into the near post but Pantilimon claims well.
    • 26' Pote wins a free kick off Kolo Toure. Looked a harsh one.
    • 25' Koz thinks he has won a corner off Kolarov but the referee has different ideas. Goal kick.
    • 24' Toure tries to find Aguero with a neat chip over the top but Dynamo are alive to the danger.
    • 23' Toure has his pass intercepted and Biton is shown the yellow for a bad challenge.
    • 22' Lots of noise from the Dynamo fans tonight. They’ve obviously had less distance to travel!
    • 21' Pote tries to get things going for Dresden. Solga finds Trojan but he sends his header just wide. that's the best from Dynamo so far.
    • 20' City build again in the Dynamo half, Kolarov crosses but Kirsten claims.
    • 18' Trojan nearly gets in behind the City defence but Toure nips in to clear.
    • 17' Great work from Tezez who finds an opening to shoot just outside the box but he fires it just wide of a sprawling Kirsten. Livening up now.
    • 16' Toure finds Tevez who sets it up for Lopez but his shot is blocked by Schuppan. Best chance yet.
    • 14' It’s been a fairly quiet start here in all honesty, City looking patient but failing to produce any openings.
    • 13' Zabalata concedes a free kick then petulantly fires the ball away in frustration.
    • 12' Toure looks for Aguero but Dresden clear the danger. Solga looks for Pote who fails to get to the ball.
    • 10' Zabaleta caught offside. No clear cut chances as yet still.
    • 9' Tevez effort is blocked.
    • 8' Aguero links with Savic but City concede a free kick and Dresden clear.
    • 7' City have Dresden pegged back in their own half at the moment, the German side struggling to get hold of the ball.
    • 6' Dresden averaged less than one and a half goals a game last season, one of the less potent attacking forces.
    • 4' City with all the possession so far, Kompany taking up a position on the right hand side.
    • 3' Zabaleta tries to find Toure but well defended by Dresden.
    • 2' Aguero gives chase and City win a throw. Bright start.
    • 1' Interception by Lopez but his first touch was just a little too heavy. He was almost in!
    • We're underway here, City kicking off in their customary colours of sky blue against Dresden in yellow with black shorts.
    • 17.55 The Premier League champions will be looking to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat in their opening pre-season friendly against Saudi side Al Hilal against a Bundesliga 2 side that finished 9th in Bundesliga 2 last season.
    • 17.50 MAN CITY TEAM: Pantilimon, Savic, Kompany, K.Toure, Kolarov, Zabaleta, Y.Toure, Biton, Lopes, Aguero, Tevez.
