Watch Video Highlights Of Club Brugge 1 – 5 Manchester City UEFA Champions League Group A Fixture On 19th October. Cancelo and Riyad Mahrez opened the scoring.
Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City Boys picked up three points from their UEFA Champions League Group A visit to Club Brugge on Tuesday Evening.
The Belgians looked to choke the midfield and had some success doing that in the early minutes of the game, then playing wide ones they had acquired possession. However, their plan wasn’t too much problem for the Citizens, who were too fast and soon started knocking doors in their Host’s defence.
City had a few balls in the net but they were all filled offside by the referee, still they kept asking questions and stretching the defensive line of the Belgians, thanks to some impressive defence breaking passing from Kelvin De’Bruyne and Phil Foden. After a few more attempts, Foden raised a nicely timed ball over the Club Brugge defence to Cancelo, who made no mistake sliding the ball into the net.
Manchester City’s kept the dominance going and before half time were able to double their lead with a Goal from the penalty spot. Riyad Mahrez was the man tasked with the and he made no mistake, clinically finishing the ba past the keeper to send City into the break with a two goal lead.
