Mario Balotelli and Manchester City became the first club not win a single group-stage match in the Champions League.

Manchester City and Italy striker Mario Balotelli has become a father after former girlfriend Raffaella Fico gave birth to a baby daughter.

The child has been named Pia according to Italian media.

She was born on Wednesday, five days earlier than expected, at the Clinica Mediterranea in Naples. Balotelli was not present at the birth.

City faces crosstown rival Manchester United in the English Premier League on Sunday.
