Marseille doing their best to at least get one, but City have defended very well tonight.
Three minutes of added time here.
What progress he has made under Pep. My word.
Guardiola is still very animated on the touchline. He wants more!
- OffMickaël CuisanceOlympique de Marseille
- OnPape GueyeOlympique de Marseille
Final change for the hosts, who are well and truly beaten here. Pape Alassane Gueye is on for Cuisance.
- OffKevin De BruyneManchester City
- OnCole PalmerManchester City
Final change for City as young Cole Palmer comes on to replace De Bruyne.
Another assist for De Bruyne as he brilliantly sets up Sterling to put this game to bed.
- GoalRaheem SterlingManchester City
GGGGOOOOAAALLLL!!!!! Marseille 0-3 Man City. Now it definitely over as Sterling makes it three.
Loving it in Europe!
- OffFlorian ThauvinOlympique de Marseille
- OnDimitri PayetOlympique de Marseille
Double change for the home side, too, with Dimitri Payet and Darío Benedetto on for Thauvin and Radonjic.
- OffIlkay GündoganManchester City
- OnBernardo SilvaManchester City
Triple change for City, with Bernardo Silva, Royad Mahrez and John Stones replacing Laporte, Gundogan and Torres.
That is that as Sterling heads across for the onrushing Gundogan, who also makes it two in two in this season's Champions League.
- GoalIlkay GündoganManchester City
GGGGOOOOOOAAAAALLLLLL!!!! Marseille 0-2 Man City. Game over as Gundogan makes it two.
You would think it was Marseille who were in front the way they are sitting back.
- Yellow cardDuje Caleta-CarOlympique de Marseille
Duje Caleta-Car is the latest player to go into the book for a late lunge.
CHANCE! Fine, flowing move from City, Sterling pulls it back for Gundogan, who fires for goal first time, but it is straight at Mandanda.
- OffOleksandr ZinchenkoManchester City
- OnJoão CanceloManchester City
Change for City with Joao Cancelo on for Zinchenko.
Game has gone a little flat now. City still need that second goal.
If only it was full...
- OffValentin RongierOlympique de Marseille
- OnMorgan SansonOlympique de Marseille
Change for Marseille as Morgan Sanson replaces Rongier.
- Yellow cardJordan AmaviOlympique de Marseille
Nice link-up play between Sterling and De Bruyne, the former gets to the byline, but Amavi upends the City forward. Yellow card.
Great pass from De Bruyne, but Sterling is just offside.
- Yellow cardAymeric LaporteManchester City
Wild lunge from Laporte sees him pick up the game's first yellow card.
OFF THE POST! Bizarre effort and bizarre reaction from Ederson. Thauvin has a go from 30 yards out, left footed looking for the near post. It doesn't look to be troubling Ederson, who sticks an arm out, and it hits his arm and hits the outside of the post!
De Bruyne with the pull back, but it is behind everyone. That killer pass lacking for City at the moment.
City are so casual in possession, but they need that second goal.
City remain comfortable, with Foden miscontrolling at the vital moment.
Some overdue pressure from MArseille as Cuisance whips a cross into the middle which is cleared.
City, as usual, having all the possession at the start of this half.
- 2nd Half
KICK OFF! We are back under way here. No changes for either side.
A landmark strike!
- End of 1st Half
HT: Marseille 0-1 Man City. A huge gulf between these two side, with City good value for their lead having completely dominated from the first whistle. Until that second goal comes, though, Marseille remain in this.
One minute of added time at the end of the first half.
I cannot remember the last time Marseille touched the ball.
First shot on goal for Marseille, as Nemanja Radonjic fires straight at Ederson.
City spraying it from side to side, patiently looking for the gap. A second would end this as a contest already.
Ilkay Gundogan goes down looking for the free-kick, but the referee is having none of it.
POST! Another mistake from Marseille, the ball falls for Zinchenko, who drills for goal on his left foot, but his fizzing effort clips the outside of the post and goes wide.
De Bruyne with another low cross, but it is cleared. City come again, and again.
The Belgian is back to his feet. Panic over.
Guardiola is looking concerned on the touchline, too.
Worry for City as De Bruyne stays down after a tackle. This would be a huge blow.
Break in play as Florian Thauvin goes down with a knock. Looks ok to continue.
De Bruyne with the lofted pass into Foden, but the youngster cannot control.
Loving it on the continent.
Marseille cannot get out of their half. City come again, with De Bruyne leading the charge.
This has the look of a City hammering. A real gulf between these sides.
Dreadful pass from Valentin Rongier is picked up by De Bruyne, who threads the pass across for Torres to score his second in as many Champions League games. Easy as you like for City.
- GoalFerrán TorresManchester City
GGGGOOOOAALLL!!! Marseille 0-1 Man City. Mistake from the hosts is punished by Ferran Torres. It had been coming.
Zinchenko's cross causes all sorts of problems, but Marseille scramble it clear.
SHOT! Foden lets the ball drop over his shoulder, but volleys straight at Marseille stopper Steve Mandanda.
Foden into De Bruyne but the Belgian cannot quite gather into his stride. Wave after wave of City attacks.
Brilliant dribble from Sterling, he then sets up De Bruyne, whose shot is well blocked.
With five in defence, Marseille are more than happy to sit back and soak up pressure. That may be why Payet is only on the bench...
Phil Foden with the low cross but it is cut out easily. Sharp start from City.
All City early on, with Raheem Sterling seeing plenty of the ball.
Why so sad?
Early chance for De Bruyne but he volleys over the top.
KICK OFF! Marseille have lost their last 10 matches in the competition - time for another tonight? We are up and running.
So here we go. This is the trophy City and Guardiola wants. Uefa wouldn't be all that keen on them winning it, mind. We are minutes away!
Ahead of kick off catch up with all the latest transfer talk from across Europe as Zinedine Zidane is linked with a return home.
What has Kyle Walker spotted?
Without Sergio Aguero in the side, City will have to turn Raheem Sterling. Since Pep Guardiola took charge of Manchester City ahead of the 2016-17 season, Sterling has been directly involved in more goals in the Champions League than any other player at the club (26 – 17 goals and nine assists).
A look at Pep Guardiola, into this fifth season in Manchester…
HEAD TO HEAD: Manchester City will meet Marseille for the first time in European competition. City have only won two of their previous seven Champions League games against French teams (D2 L3), going winless in each of the last four (D1 L3). Marseille have picked up just one victory in their last 11 Champions League encounters with English teams (D2 L8), losing four of the last five matches.
What a setting!
LAPORTE AND DE BRUYNE BACK, AGUERO OUT: As expected Sergio Aguero is not fit so City again line-up without a recognised striker. There is better news, though, as Aymeric Laporte and Kevin De Bruyne are fit again and return to the City starting XI. Ferran Torres and Oleksandr Zinchenko also come in. Former West Ham star Dimitri Payet is on the bench for Marseille.

Hello and welcome to our LIVE coverage of Manchester City’s Champions League trip to Marseille. City’s season has not gone to plan domestically, but they got their European campaign up and running with a battling win over Porto last week, with former Chelsea and Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas’ Marseille up next, who will be looking to get their Group C campaign up and running after defeat to Olympiakos last time out.
