Manchester City completed a remarkable Champions League turnaround to beat Roma and book their place in the knockout stages of the competition.

Second-half goals from Samir Nasri and Pablo Zabaleta were the difference on the night as Manuel Pellegrini’s men defeated the Serie A giants in Italy to go through in second spot in the group, behind Bayern Munich.

By contrast, Nasri buzzed inventively throughout for City and his wonderful 60th-minute effort cannoned home off the upright.
