African Star Nets First Goals As Man City Thump Cardiff

English Premier League 

Result: Cardiff City 0-5 Manchester City

Date: 22 September 2018

Venue: Cardiff City Stadium

Sergio Aguero scored on his 300th appearances for Manchester City as the Premier League champions thumped Cardiff City 5-0, while African star Riyad Mahrez bagged a brace.

Aguero nearly broke the deadlock in the 12th minute but his strike sailed inches wide of the upright.

The City striker was not to be denied in the 32nd minute as the Argentine side-footed home from close after a cut-back from Bernardo Silva.

Three minutes later, Silva registered a goal to go with his assist, with the Portuguese firing home from close range after being picked out by Leroy Sane.

City managed to bag a fourth goal on the stroke of halftime break through Illkay Gundogan's superb finish that sailed into the top corner.

Pep Guardiola's charges continued to carve out chances in the second half, with Raheem Sterling, Sane and Aguero going close just before the hour mark.

Riyad Mahrez was introduced in the 63rd minute and he made an immediate impact by netting his first City goal three minutes after his arrival.

The champions were in full control the remainder of the half, as Cardiff posed no potential threat to Ederson's goal.

City managed to grab a fifth goal in the 90th minute with Mahrez completing his brace with a close-range finish.
