Young Boys 1-Manchester City 3: summary, result and goals

And again… Haaland!

Victory for Manchester City in which they once again showed power in the opportunities created. Pep Guardiola’s team left with a tie at half-time, but a few minutes into the second half Akanji put the English ahead after a corner kick.

Far from collapsing, Young Boys took advantage of Manchester City’s defensive disorganization a few minutes later to plant Elia in front of Ederson. The African would beat the Brazilian with a spectacular Vaseline that would tie the score. The Swiss took advantage of the mood boost, and tried to find a second goal although their chances were not entirely clear.

With the game in chaos that did not benefit the citizens, a penalty on Rodrigo would calm the waters for Pep Guardiola’s team. Haaland, stubborn during the match, scored his first goal in this edition of the UCL from a penalty. Later, the VAR would annul Julián Álvarez’s third, but before the end came it would be the Norwegian who scored a goal from a play in which he sent the ball into the top corner with a right foot.

Despite the lack of effectiveness, Manchester City continues with a firm step with three wins in three games, while Young Boys continues to think about third place while dreaming of having some hope of second place.
