Half-Time Report: Manchester City cruising against CSKA Moscow

Manchester City are in control at half time against CSKA Moscow, winning 3-1 with a double from Sergio Aguero and a strike from Alvaro Negredo.

Manchester City have raced into a 3-1 lead against CSKA Moscow at half time in the Champions League.

Sergio Aguero's brace and Alvaro Negredo's strike had given City a commanding lead against the Russians, before Seydou Doumbia hit back on the stroke of half time.

Aguero continued his goalscoring form from the penalty spot on three minutes, after Zoran Tosic brought down David Silva.

City nearly doubled their lead when Samir Nasri danced past two CSKA challenges before teeing up Silva, but the Spaniard could not connect properly with the shot, and it ended up off target.

Aguero added his second after 21 minutes, before Negredo extended the lead nine minutes later after he poked home from close range.

With the half petering out, Doumbia grabbed one back for his side after rounding Costel Pantilimon in the City goal.
