The UEFA Champions League is into its exciting knockout stages. Here we bring to you the extended highlights from the best five games from the group stages. First up is Manchester City's surprise 1-2 loss to Lyon on the matchday 1.

Manchester City's Champions League campaign got off to a shocking start on Wednesday, as Maxwel Cornet and Nabil Fekir secured Lyon a 2-1 win at the Etihad Stadium over the competition favourites.

Pep Guardiola was forced to watch the Group F opener from his lofty perch in the stands due to a touchline ban, and while City were largely dominant, Lyon's dynamism in attack caused problems and they ultimately managed to hang on.

City controlled possession, but two errors from Fernandinho allowed Lyon to punish them, with Fekir and Cornet giving Bruno Genesio's men a shock – albeit deserved – 2-0 lead at half-time.

Leroy Sane's entrance made a difference and he swiftly set up Bernardo Silva to pull one back, but Lyon dug deep and held off City's late onslaught to secure a famous victory.
