    Background: ENGLISH FIRST DIVISION CHAMPIONS, MANCHESTER CITY, WERE SURPRISINGLY HELD TO A GOAL-LESS DRAW BY FENERBAHCE OF ISTANBUL IN THEIR FIRST LEG MATCH OF THE EUROPEAN CUP FIRST ROUND AT MAINE ROAD, MANCHESTER, TONIGHT (WEDNESDAY).

    MANCHESTER CITY, CURRENTLY LANGUISHING NEAR THE BOTTOM OF THIS SEASON'S LEAGUE TABLE, CREATED ENOUGH OPPORTUNITIES TO WIN HANDSOMELY BUT THEIR FORWARDS WERE CASUAL AND OFF-TARGET. THE TURKISH CHAMPIONS QUICKLY SURRENDERED THE CENTRE OF THE FIELD TO CITY AND PACKED THE PENALTY AREA. THEIR DEFENCE WAS MAGNIFICENT AND FENERBAHCE - WHO ONLY CONCEDED 12 GOALS IN 32 TURKISH LEAGUE GAMES LAST SEASON - THOROUGHLY DESERVED THEIR DRAW.
