Feyenoord 0 – 4 Manchester City | UEFA Champions League – Match Highlights
- 2′ 0 – 1 John Stones scores and Man City is onto a good start, Feyenoord are caught asleep at a corner and City take full advantage. Silva crosses for Stones from the byline and the defender’s header should be cleared off the line by Vilhena. However, it goes through his legs and over the line.
- 10′ 0 – 2 Sergio Agüero lashes in goal number two and is this game over already? Most probably when Walker gets down the right and picks out the run of Aguero, who sweeps the ball into the far corner from around eight yards out. Easy as that.
25′ 0 – 3 Gabriel Jesus volley in the third goal for Man City and is definitely game over. Mendy’s shot is well saved by Jones and everyone is expecting offside when Jesus nonchalantly volleys the rebound into the net from 10 yards. However, the Brazilian was comfortably onside, Otamendi wasn’t but he wasn’t interfering and the goal stands.
63′ 0 – 4 John Stones scores his second goal for Manchester City on the day and makes it the fourth with a clean header from a very close range to the high centre of the goal assisted by Kevin De Bruyne with a cross following a corner.
