Full-time: Man City round off their group campaign in style, ending Dinamo Zagreb's dreams of progressing to the last 16. Gabriel Jesus' hat-trick will steal the headlines but Phil Foden's brilliance shouldn't go unnoticed.
There will be three minutes of added time.
Guardiola feels that Foden could be a successor for David Silva. His comments may have come as a surprise for some, as Foden had not started a single game for City since October. But once again the teenager has demonstrated why he is so highly rated with yet another aspiring performance. He has been a ball of energy, picking the ball up from deep areas and constantly running at defenders with pace and trickery. Sound familiar?
My man of the match? Jesus may have scored a hat-trick but almost everything in the City attack was orchestrated by Foden. He simply must get more game time.

GOAL! Dinamo Zagreb 1-4 Man City: Foden grabs the goal his performance deserves! He nips in front of his marker to slot home from Cancelo's cut-back.

Man City sub: A proud moment for 17-year-old Taylor Harwood-Bellis, who replaces Otamendi.

Double Dinamo sub: Gojak and Orsic make way for Lovro Majer and Izet Hajrovic.
Goal disallowed! Otamendi heads against the crossbar and Sterling converts with the rebound, but he was standing in an offside position.
A reminder of who City could face in the last 16: Napoli, Borussia Dortmund, Lyon, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid or Bayer Leverkusen.
This game is as good as over now. City have had 90 per cent of the possession in the last five minutes.
- OffRodrigoManchester City
- OnRaheem SterlingManchester City
Man City sub: Raheem Sterling is on for City. That's something of a surprise. He replaces Rodri.
Atalanta - who failed to win their first FOUR games - are winning at Shakhtar and, as it stands, are going through to the last 16!
Dinamo are looking very brittle now as City continue to surge forward. Mahrez clips a beautiful cross into the six-yard box and Ademi is forced to head behind with a timely intervention.
- OffGabriel JesusManchester City
- OnOleksandr ZinchenkoManchester City
Man City sub: That will be Jesus' last contribution as he is replaced by Oleksandr Zinchenko.
That should be four! Foden and Mendy are absolutely terrorising Dinamo on the left here. It should be four as Foden slips in Mendy whose cross is perfect for Jesus, but somehow he heads over!
- OffDamian KadziorDinamo Zagreb
- OnMarko GjiraDinamo Zagreb
Dinamo Zagreb sub: Gjira comes on for Kadzior. It's only a matter of time until City make changes of their own.
Over! City are swarming all over the hosts now. They could chalk up four, five, six or seven tonight. Mendy lifts another beautiful cross into the box and this time Cancelo rifles it over the bar from the edge of the penalty area.
- GoalGabriel JesusManchester City
GOAL! Dinamo Zagreb 1-3 Man City (Jesus): Jesus has his hat-trick! That is beautiful! It comes from the left flank again, and again Foden and Mendy are involved. Foden feeds Mendy whose delightful cross is proded home by Jesus six yards out.
That was scintillating football from City, and wouldn't you know Foden would be involved. Guardiola said he will be David Silva's successor. Hard to argue with him on this performance.
- GoalGabriel JesusManchester City
GOAL! Dinamo Zagreb 1-2 Man City: This is a lovely team goal, finished by Jesus! The Brazilian, Mendy and Foden link-up to devastating effect down the left flank, the latter playing the final pass and Jesus checks inside his marker to coolly curl it past the goalkeeper.
Over! Foden is desperate to get on the score-sheet and he lets fly from 25 yards - shooting well over. Everything he does is so positive, though.
Rodri, having suffered an elbow to the side of the jaw, is fit to continue, by the way.
- 2nd Half
Kick-off! Dinamo Zagreb get the ball rolling in the second half. It's as you were in terms of personnel.
- End of 1st Half
Half-time: City have dominated the game in terms of possession but it's one apiece at the break.
Ouch! Rodri is down holding his face and looks in considerable pain. Gojak appeared to throw his elbow into his face! That is really nasty. VAR has had a look and somehow the Dinamo defender escapes punishment.
Foden has been first class so far. He has been full of intent, drive and energy, dropping from deep and constantly running at defenders.
Orsic skips past Mendy close to the by-line but the linesman spares the City full-back his blushes with his offside flag.
Wide! Jesus cushions down a header into the path of Foden who shoots well wide with a first time effort.
Jesus' last 12 goals for Man City in all competitions have come away from the Etihad!
City had every right to play on there. Foden was the target of a deliberate foul and the two Dinamo players actually ended up colliding with each other.
- GoalGabriel JesusManchester City
GOAL! Dinamo Zagreb 1-1 Man City: Jesus levels for City with a lovely header from a Mahrez cross! Foden was hacked down in the build-up by a Dinamo player who injured himself in the process and the hosts are livid that City didn't kick the ball out! Ademi is booked for his protests.
Stojanovic races away down the flank as Dinamo break but he's tracked all the way by Mendy who shows his brute strength to get his body between player and ball and shepherds it out of play for a goal-kick.
Mahrez's corner delivery is straight forward for Dinamo to clear and it's back to the drawing board for Pep.
Foden is limping after a collision with Ademi, as City force a corner. Mahrez to take...
Save! Dinamo send another warning shot as Orsic heads straight at Bravo.
Over! Dinamo go direct as Olmo latches onto a flicked on header. He takes the shot on early doors once again but this time he leans back and blazes it over the bar.
For all of City's tidy possession, they have registered just the one shot on target with almost half an hour on the clock.
City have had 70 per cent possession and have played almost four times as many passes as the hosts.
Wrong pass! Gundogan loses the ball in midfield and suddenly Dinamo break in a three-vs-two situation as Moro leads the charge. He has Olmo sprinting in space to his right but plays the wrong pass and City mop up the danger.
Pass. Pass. Pass. City continuing to dominate possession. Zagreb are playing cautiously and that is understandable - they have something to protect now.
City are playing with a nice shape and a nice free-flowing move allows Mahrez space on the right but his cross is beyond everyone in the penalty area. City only have Jesus in the penalty box and you can understand why they are tempted to pass their way into the box rather than cross.
Save! There are signs that City are beginning to click in attack sense and now Gundogan takes aim from 25 yards. It takes a deflection and Livakovic is at full-stretch to push it wide.
City are overloading Dinamo on the flanks as the ball is worked to Mendy on the overlap but this time his cross is straight into the arms of the home stop-stopper.
It is now TEN matches without a clean sheet for City.
Mendy sends a nice ball into the penalty area but there aren't many City attackers in the box and Dinamo manage to scramble it clear.
City may have nothing to play for tonight but Pep won't want to lose for the second time in four days. The visitors have had plenty of the ball but mostly in safe areas.
That goal changes things in the fight for second place in Group C. As it stands, Zagreb would qualify as runners-up. Shakhtar and Atalanta is currently still 0-0.
- GoalDaniel OlmoDinamo Zagreb
GOAL! Dinamo Zagreb 1-0 Man City (Olmo): Oh, that is special! The hosts have lift off! A simple in-swinger from the right picks out Olmo who smashes the opener in with the outside of his right foot. Bravo got a touch to it but there was so much pace and power on the volley he couldn't keep it out.
City's passing has been mostly sideways and back to the goalkeeper but finally there's a forward pass that releases Mendy. Unfortunately, for City, he skews his cross and it's behind for a Dinamo goal-kick.
Ouch! Dinamo midfielder Ademi is in agony after taking a whack in the... well you know... Thankfully he'll be fit to continue after a moment's rest.
Rodri catches Olmo on the ankle with what appears to be a late challenge but bizarrely the referee allows play to continue.
The supporters are making a great noise. This is a huge night for Dinamo with the local papers here describing it as the game of the decade for the hosts.
- 1st Half
Kick-off! City get the game underway on a cold night in Zagreb.
'The champiiiioooonnnsss'... here we go...
"We want to try to come back and get a really good result, it is the best medicine to overcome the situation," those are Pep's words to BT Sport. With just two wins from their last seven games, can City bounce back with a win?
Ten minutes until kick-off! Can Dinamo stun City or will the visitors have too much class?
Ederson is feeling unwell and will be replaced on the bench by Scott Carson.
Nenad Bjelica, Dinamo Zagreb coach: "We have to win, it will be much easier to play in front of our fans and in a full stadium. It will be easier to be more attacking that way; we have to surprise our opponents, they're one of the best teams in the world."
Guardiola: "It was a big surprise [to see how well Dinamo have done]. They have fast players: they're so, so fast. They have had a really good competition so far, they have an incredible opportunity to go through."
It's all to play for in Group C ... get your head round this!
If City avoid defeat this evening, it would be the first time they have qualified from the group stage without suffering at least one loss.
Taylor Harwood-Bellis makes the City subs bench this evening. The 17-year-old has made one first team appearance but he clearly has potential and with City short on centre-backs and with a hectic fixture schedule coming up, the teenager could be thrown into first team action sooner rather than later.
Having already qualified as group winners, Pep will have already looked at his side's potential opponents in the last 16 draw and he may well have winched. City will play either Napoli, Borussia Dortmund, Lyon, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid or Bayer Leverkusen.
City may have nothing to play for but Pep has kept his promise by naming a strong team. He makes eight changes from the defeat against United, but there are plenty of good players in this starting XI. The only big names to miss out are Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling. Phil Foden comes in to make his first start since October while Eric Garcia partners Nicholas Otamendi at the back.
Dinamo Zagreb XI: Livakovic, Stojanovic, Dilaver, Gojak, Moubandje, Ademi, Kadzior, Moro, Dani Olmo, Petkovic, Orsic.. subs: Zagorac, Hajrovic, Majer, Gavranovic, Situm, Ivanusec, Dira.
Man City XI: Bravo, Cancelo, E Garcia, Otamendi, Mendy, Gundogan, Rodri, Foden, B Silva, Jesus, Mahrez.. subs: Ederson, Walker, Sterling, Zinchenko, Angelino, De Bruyne, Harwood-Bellis.
