City Cruise To Away Win

Manchester City walked away with a comfortable 3-0 away victory over Czech outfit Viktoria Plzen at the Struncovy Sady Stadion.

After a nervy first 45 minutes City produced a sensational second-half display, scoring all three of their goals in a 10 minute period that their hosts had no answer for.

Manuel Pelligrini will be delighted with his sides showing after a run of disappointing results in the Premier League and will hope to build on from this result in the Manchester Derby this weekend.

Striker Eden Dzeko broke the deadlock in the 48th minute before Yaya Toure scored a wonderful 25 yard curling effort to put the game past Viktoria Plzen. Argentine striker Sergio Aguero scored the away team’s third goal, firing home after a smart turn.

Plzen did manage to create chances and came close when Tomas Horava hit the post from a corner.

It was a welcome victory for City who recorded their first win in seven Champions League games, finishing bottom of their group last season, after having failed to reach the knockout stages two seasons ago.

The visitors also welcomed back returning skipper Vincent Kompany, who completed 90 minutes after being out injured since City's opening day victory over Newcastle.

Next up for Manchester City are the European Champions Bayern Munich, who will most definitely be a much tougher test for Pelligrini’s men than the Czechs.
