It was the away match of the team of Pep Guardiola but they started the match as they played at their home venue. At the beginning of the match, the home team started to give the pressure on Man City’s defense and could go ahead in the 4th minute of the game. But the Dutch football player Hateboer missed the chance though he was in a good position. Three minutes later, Man City made their first attack and found the net. Into the box, Jesus made the back pas and Raheem Sterling found the net easily.
Bad luck for Claudio Bravo! Ederson was injured at halftime and 4 minutes into the second half he concedes the goal in the first kick to the target.
