Dull skies, a slight nip in the air and leaves just about hanging on to the trees provides ambiance around the Etihad Stadium, but the mood around Manchester City is anything but autumnal.
Win tonight, coupled with a Hoffenheim defeat, and City would be through to the knock-out stages with little trouble at all.
Two games already underway and we have a goal in the Russian capital, with Kostas Manolas heading Roma in front at CSKA Moscow in the fourth minute.
And as I type, Valencia edge ahead against Young Boys with Santi Mina tapping home – not good news for Manchester United in that group.
