Johnny On The Spot: Roberto Mancini's cunning plan tonight was to rest at least 6 key players for the important weekend visit of Bolton and open up his side with some attacking flare and it worked a treat...City were superior in every department over Salzburg, most notably in athleticism...The one/two touch football which The Citizens employed to dominate the Austrians made for enjoyable watching but repeated profligacy and numerous refused penalty shouts threatened to rock The Blues boat on an arctic Eastlands night...Yet the powerful Super Mario Balotelli's superb opening finish settled any nerves and City continued to pour forward repeatedly fuelled by sizzling breaks and interceptions by the likes of Milner, SWP and Johnson who all had fire in their boots...Balotelli in particular is looking a formidable prospect. He's got it all. Height, strength, power, pace and a wonderful first touch that skilfully held the ball up tremendously well. He now has 5 goals from 5 City appearances...Perhaps the most pleasing aspect of this win which sees us qualify for the last 32 with a game to spare is the evidently strong morale and spirit within the City side. The squad is clearly brimming with confidence and competition for places now, encapsulated in Adam Johnson's stunning goal...A season defining December has begun in style. Now to kick on with a fully fit selection and get a strong unbeaten run going... Stats courtesy UEFA.COM
