Manuel Pellegrini's men recorded a stunning win in Germany

In an amazing turnaround in Germany, Manchester City came back from two goals down to beat Bayern Munich, while on home soil Manchester United topped their Champions League group with a narrow win. Mike Norman has the details...

"At this point Bayern were trading at just 1.031/33 to win the game and nearly £400k was matched on the German champions at 1.041/25 or lower in the Match Odds market."

Manchester City were matched at a high of 150.0149/1 In-Play as they came from two goals down to beat Champions League holders Bayern Munich 2-3 in the Allianz Arena tonight.

With qualification guaranteed, Manuel Pellegrini fielded a second-string side in Munich, undoubtedly with one eye on Saturday's early kick-off against Arsenal in the Premier League.

And when the hosts went 2-0 up inside 12 minutes thanks to goals from Thomas Muller and Mario Gotze, the game was as good as over. Or so it seemed. At this point Bayern were trading at just 1.031/33 to win the game and nearly £400k was matched on the German champions at 1.041/25 or lower in the Match Odds market.

But shortly before the interval David Silva pulled one back for City, and remarkably, second half goals from Aleksandar Kolarov and James Milner completed the unlikliest of comebacks.

Muller was matched at 7.613/2 in the First Goalscorer market, but along with the huge odds matched about the away win, the Citizens were also matched at 300.0299/1 to win 2-3 in the Correct Score market.

At Old Trafford Manchester United recorded a narrow 1-0 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk to top Group A.

The English champions, coming off the back of two successive home defeats in the Premier League, were far from at their best but a Phil Jones goal in the second half secured the win.

United were matched at 2.942/1 for the victory, while Jones was matched at 46.045/1 in the First Goalscorer market, and the 1-0 Correct Score hit a high of 11.010/1.

Bayern Munich remain the 3.55 favourites to retain their crown, though Manchester City have shortened slightly to 16.015/1 in the Champions League Winner market, while neighbours Manchester United can be backed at 20.019/1.
