Hamburg SV 1-0 Manchester City
City's first pre-season game away in Germany proved to be non-eventful, except for a small matter of Hamburg's new recruit Jonathan Pitroipa scoring the only goal of the game.
During the first 45 minutes City were always second best against the talented Bundesliga side, with Pitroipa a constant threat against a resilient City defence.
Nevertheless, Mark Hughes' side came out stronger in the second half but failed to capitalise in temperatures exceeding 30 degrees.
