Manchester City recorded their biggest win in the Champions League as they thrashed Shakhtar Donetsk - but an injury-time goal in the other group match meant they must wait to secure qualification for the last 16.

Pep Guardiola's side are top of Group F and were heading into the next phase, until 10-man Hoffenheim came from 2-0 down and scored a 92nd-minute equaliser to draw 2-2 with Lyon.

But City will qualify as group winners with one game to spare if they win away at Lyon on Tuesday, 27 November.
