The Citizens dominated possession in the game but were thwarted by their disciplined hosts who put up strong resistance all through.
In the 36th minute, Kevin De Bruyne nearly broke the deadlock for the Citizens with a fierce strike from 10-yards but goalkeeper Jonas Lossl produced a good save to deny the Belgian as the sides went into the break still goalless.
It's the day of Champions in Manchester, with Manchester City finally set to receive the Premier League trophy after clinching the title several weeks ago.

Raheem Sterling has perhaps benefited most from the Spaniard's tutelage, having enjoyed the most consistent season of his career with 18 goals to date.

Mendy strike was inches away from the target in the 85th minute as City continued to find a goal.
Guardiola said: "We can not deny it would be nice to set records but it's nicer when you win the Premier League".
"We had many players who were on and off and it's nearly like it's had no impact on the season whatsoever, which is a credit to the coaching staff".
Captain Vincent Kompany, speaking to Sky Sports: "The celebrations, this team deserves more than ever".
