8th Finals
UEFA Europa League


That's all from us tonight folks, we hope you enjoyed the game!
A thumping four-nil victory in the opening game and a clean sheet will have made Guardiola a very happy man.
A completely dominant performance by Man City here tonight in Rotterdam, the gulf is quality between the two sides was clear to see. John Stones gave City the lead after just two minutes, their fastest ever Champions League before Aguero doubled their lead after 10 minutes, then Gabriel Jesus scored on his Champions League debut to make it three, then Stones scored his second to round off the victory mid-way through the second half.
90' + 2' That's the full-time whistle!
90' There will be a minimum of two minutes of added time played here.
87' A rousing performance of 'You'll never walk alone' is being performed by the Feyenoord supporters at the moment, they have made their voices heard throughout the game and have never stopped cheering on their side, despite being second best in all departments here tonight.
85' STAT: Pep Guardiola has reached the semi-finals in seven of his eight seasons as manager in the Champions League but has not reached the final since 2011.
83' City are just comfortably keeping the ball at the moment, De Bruyne controlling the play like he has all evening and they are just seeing the clock tick down now. Feyenoord not getting close to stringing any passes together and are camped inside their own half.
80' Not long to go here until the full-time whistle, can Feyenoord create anything going forward to pull at least one goal back? Or, will City continue to dominate and even make it five late on here.
S. Larsson
S. Amrabat
78' Feyenoord make their third and final substitution of the game with Sofyan Amrabat coming off and he is replaced by Sam Larsson.
75' Sterling gives away a sloppy free-kick on the edge of his own area and this gives Feyenoord a good chance to have an attempt at goal. However, the shot is poor from Toornstra as it flies high over the bar.
L. Sané
72' City make their third and final substitution of the game with Fernandinho coming off and he is replaced by Leroy Sané. The skippers armband is now with Kevin De Bruyne for the remaining 20 minutes or so of the game.
D. Vente
M. Kramer
71' Feyenoord make their second change of the game just seconds later, with Michiel Kramer heading off the pitch and he has been replaced by Dylan Vente.
70' The pace of the game has dropped slightly over the last few minutes with City cruising to victory here and Feyenoord showing a few tired legs here. In the other game in Group F, Shaktar Donetsk are beating Napoli 2-0.
F. Delph
David Silva
67' City make their second substitution of the game and it is a rare opportunity for Fabian Delph to get some minutes on the pitch, he replaces David Silva, who passes the captains armband to Fernandinho.
Eric Botteghin
Yellow Card
66' Another Feyenoord player is shown a yellow card, this time it is Eric Fernando Botteghin for his late challenge on Gabriel Jesus.
K. De Bruyne
63' De Bruyne with yet another assist to his name in a City shirt, it was a fantastic ball into the box which was perfectly met by Stones and left Jones with no chance of saving it.
J. Stones
63' GOOOAAALLL! FOUR-NIL! Stones nets his second goal of the game and City’s fourth tonight! David Silva and De Bruyne linked up well, with the latter whipping a superb ball into the box from the left and Stones rose highest to power the ball past the diving Jones. The first time Stones has ever second two goals in a game. Terrific stuff.
61' The atmosphere is terrific here despite the home side being three-nil down, the home supporters are making an incredible amount of noise and getting behind their side as much as possible. As we go past the 60 minutes mark, it is still all City here with Feyenoord still struggling to keep up with the City players all over the pitch.
R. Sterling
S. Agüero
59' Here comes the Man City substitution and it is Sergio Agüero who is being replaced by Raheem Sterling.
56' It looks like City may be preparing their first change of the evening with Rahem Sterling getting ready on the touchline, the winger has missed the last couple of games due to suspension, but appears he could be about to get a good half an hour run out tonight.
54' STAT: The Rotterdam club have never made the knockout stages of the Champions League in their four previous involvements. Plus this is Giovanni van Bronckhorst's first Champions League campaign as manager, although the Feyenoord boss did win the competition as a player with Barcelona in 2006.
51' City once again seem to take control of the game, dominating possession and they look dangerous going forward but they can afford to enjoy the rest of the game with a 3-0 lead and Feyenoord aren't showing anything to suggest that they will be able to pull a goal back, or even mount a comeback at all.
49' Already in this second period we have seen more from the hosts in this short period after half-time than in the whole of the first half. However, they aren't showing anything going forward and Ederson has barely touched the ball at all tonight.
48' City have only kept five clean sheets in their previous 36 Champions League group stage matches. A clean sheet here would be an added bonus to an already excellent performance away from home, against a tough side, but they have been ruthless tonight.
J. Toornstra
S. Berghuis
46' Feyenoord have made a substitution  at the break. Steven Berghuis has been replaced by Jens Toornstra.
46' The second half is underway!
An utterly dominant performance by City here and the have been terrific since the first kick of the ball. John Stones gave City the lead after just two minutes, before Aguero doubled their lead after 10 minutes, then Gabriel Jesus scored on his Champions League debut to make it three and hand City a comfortable lead. The hosts have barely touched the ball and City are cruising here.
45' That's the half-time whistle!
43' Feyenoord are still struggling to create anything going forward and are being heavily pressed by City who aren't allowing them any time on the ball. The home supporters are not so vocal with their support now, they are shocked by how this first half has played out so far.
T. Vilhena
Yellow Card
40' Another yellow card is shown to a Feyenoord man, this time it is Tonny Vilhena. The midfielder made an extremley late hallenge on De Bruyne, no complaints by Vilhena. The frustration is starting to show.
M. Kramer
Yellow Card
40' A yellow card is shown to Michiel Kramer for a late challenge on Walker, a very poor tackle by the striker.
39' The free-kick is whipped into the box by De Bruyne and it is an excellent ball which is met by Aguero, who flicks the ball on and forces Jones into making a good save. However, the linesman has the flag up for offside against the City striker.
J. St. Juste
Yellow Card
38' Jeremiah St. Juste is the first Feyenoord player to be shown a yellow card for a rash kick at Gabriel Jesus, giving away a silly free-kick in a good position for City.
37' Less than 10 minutes to play in the first half here in the Netherlands, City have dominated the game from the start and look dangerous every time they venture into the Feyenoord final third. The hosts are struggling to string more than two or three passes together and it really is all very comfortable for City, they surely will expected more of a challenge.
34' STAT: Gabriel Jesus is the fourth player to score on his Champions League debut for Man City. The others were Balotelli, Kolarov and Nolito.
33' This is just Feyenoord's fifth appearance in the Champions League and their first since 2002-03, the third most for a Dutch side after PSV (15) and Ajax (13).
31' ANOTHER CITY CHANCE! Aguero almost makes it four-nil! De Bruyne whipped a low ball into the box and Aguero got in front of his marker and got a toe on the ball which diverted past Jones but it went just inches wide of the near post. There could be plenty more goals scored in this game yet.
28' Total dominance by City now, it is so easy for them. Feyenoord look tired already and are chasing the City players in every department. A terrific performance by the visitors so far.
Gabriel Jesus
25' GOOOAAALLL! CITY HAVE THREE! Gabriel Jesus is the latest City man to get on the scoresheet and make it three-nil to the visitors after just 25 minutes! It was poor defending by Feyenoord, who failed to clear the lines and then were slow to pull out of the penalty area so Jesus stayed onside. Benjamin Mendy hit a low strike goal from the edge of the box which was saved by Jones, but rebound fell straight to Jesus who made no mistakes from close range, despite big appeals for offside by the hosts, but he appears to be played onside by a slow walk out by a Feyenoord defender.
23' STAT: Feyenoord have lost six of the last nine games they have played against English clubs in all competitions, winning two and one draw.
21' CHANCE FEYENOORD! A great opportunity for the hosts to pull a goal back! They broke forward after a loose ball by Bernardo Silva, the ball come to Michiel Kramer who fired an early shot at goal, which was superbly blocked by Stones. Half of the stadium thought it was in! The resulting corner is well defended by City and they clear the danger.
19' CHANCE CITY! Aguero with an opportunity to make it three-nil to city here. Bernardo Silva broke forward with pace and played a good ball to Aguero who shifted the ball to the left and then from a tight angle, fired a shot at goal which Jones had to be alert to and make a decent save.
17' Now they have a two-nil lead, City have taken their foot off the gas for the moment and it is allowing Feyenoord the opportunity to play the ball around the pitch, however they are pressing high and are only in their own half or middle of the pitch. It is all very comfortable for the visitors.
K. De Bruyne
Yellow Card
15' Kevin De Bruyne is shown the first yellow card of the game, for a late and needless challenge in the middle of the pitch. De Bruyne had already been warned by the referee for an earlier foul and he wasn't going to get away with that one.
12' That goal is Sergio Aguero's third in his last 13 Champions League games. However, he is still Manchester City's top scorer in the competition, with 22 goals in 40 games.
K. Walker
10' Kyle Walker used his pace to beat his marker down the right-flank, then looked up and picked Aguero out from the byline who still had a lot of work to do when the ball came to him. But the lethal striker made no mistakes with the finish.
S. Agüero
10' GOOOOAAALLL! CITY DOUBLE THEIR LEAD! Sergio Aguero with a terrific finish from close range to make the score two-nil after just 10 minutes here. Kyle Walker did brilliantly down the right-wing, he squared the ball across the box to Aguero who got in front of his marker far too easily and just sidefooted the ball past Brad Jones and into the back of the net.
10' Feyenoord are really struggling to have any influence on the game at the moment, they are chasing shadows with Kevin Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and David Silva controlling play and passing the ball around with ease. The hosts are struggling to even have a touch!
9' STAT: Pep Guardiola has won the Champions League on two occasions as a manager, in 2009 and 2011 both with Barcelona. A third trophy would equal Carlo Ancelotti and Bob Paisley's record.
7' The large number of City supporters are certainly making their voices heard here, they can be heard all around the stadium, spurred on by this dominate start to the game by their side.
5' The perfect start to the game by City, they are now controlling the game, enjoying possession of the ball and putting Feyenoord under pressure in their own half. The visitors are full of confidence and rightly so after their start to the game here. A terrible opening few minutes for the hosts.
David Silva
2' A good set piece into the box by Silva, allowed Stones to meet the ball, easily getting ahead of his marker and giving City an early lead.
J. Stones
2' GOOOAAALLL! CITY LEAD! What a start for Man City, they lead within the first two minutes of the game getting underway. John Stones rose highest at the corner which was whipped into the box by David Silva. It was a relatively weak header but perfectly aimed towards the bottom right-hand corner and the Feyenoord's Tonny Vilhena on the line really should've done better to clear that ball. Vilhena got the ball caught between his legs and it just rolled over the line.
1' We're underway! Feyenoord make their return to the Champions League after 15 years away from the competition.
The teams are out here at the Stadion Feijenoord and kick-off is almost upon us. Stay tuned for all of the match action!
