  • Dries Mertens scores for Napoli

The two teams traded blows throughout a thrilling 90 minutes, but City claimed a 4-2 victory to book their place in the knockout stage.

And the Argentine recorded his 178th goal for Manchester City subsequently becoming the clubs record scorer.

And West Brom midfielder Barry, who became the Premier League's record appearance-maker after playing in his 633rd game in September's defeat at Arsenal, reckons his former team-mate will be considered one of football's great forwards when he hangs up his boots. Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane support Sergio Aguero.

As for Napoli, Jose Callejon, Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne started as the front three once again, while Kalidou Koulibaly was back at centre-back after being rested in Serie A at the weekend.

Maurizio Sarri can feel aggrieved to have taken nothing from two pulsating encounters with City and his Napoli now face a must-win clash with Shakhtar Donetsk next time out to preserve their interest in the competition.


"Their matches have all been over by the 70th minute".

However, it only took the visitors less than 15 minutes to pull back an equaliser and it now stand 1-1 in Naples.

City crafted their first clear opening after the half hour when Aguero's clever lay-off to Kevin De Bruyne launched a break that ended with the Argentina striker's low effort deflecting narrowly wide.

City celebrate scoring against Napoli.

City regained the lead in the 69th minute though when a sensational counter-attack, which was led by Sane, eventually saw Aguero finish into the bottom corner as the Argentine became the club's all-time leading goalscorer.
