Man City Go Top In Champions League Group

UEFA Champions League

Group D

Full Time: Sevilla 1-3 Manchester City

Date: 3 November 2015

Venue: Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán

Manchester City went top of their UEFA Champions League, Group D after beating Sevilla 3-1 at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán on Tuesday night.

The result combined with Juventus’ stalemate against Borussia Monchengladbach means City sit atop the standings with nine points.

It was the perfect start to the match for City who took the lead after only eight minute when Fernandinho slipped Raheem Sterling through on goal and he made no mistake from 14-yards out, 1-0.

Three minutes later Fernandinho found the back of the net after he was quickest to react after an initial shot from Wilfried Bony was touched into his path and he head home from close range, 2-0.

In the 25th minute Sevilla pulled a goal back when Benoît Tremoulinas broke into the box from the right and squared for Coke to head home, 2-1.

Ten minutes later City restored their two goal cushion when Bony expertly turned home a low right-wing pass from Jesus Navas, 3-1.

The second half did not produce as many goals, but it certainly wasn’t from a lack of trying.

In the 54th minute Fernandinho missed a sitter when he was left unmarked inside the box, but saw his 16-yard shot superbly stopped by the keeper.

A minute later Bony met a pass from Sterling, but he turned his effort wide from close range and an empty goal at his mercy.

In the 63rd minute Sterling beat three defenders on his way into the box before seeing a 14-yard effort cleared off the goalline by a defender.

The game died out a bit after that as Sevilla tried to push forward, but the City defence kept them at bay as they picked up a win which sees them to the top of Group D in the UEFA Champions League.
