MAN: Gundogan - 39', 74 KDB - 51'
BAR: Messi - 21'
Manchester City💎 produced an impressive👏 2nd half performance to trump Barcelona🔷 on Matchday 4 of the Champions League.
City took the lead almost immediately after the break. ⭐Kevin de Bruyne's freekick rose over the wall and arrowed into the back of the net, evading the fingertips of Ter Stegen. Buoyed by the goal, City put Barca to the sword with their incessant pressing👊. KDB came perilously close to doubling the lead but couldn't finish on both occasions😖. For the visitors, Andre Gomez hit the bar in the 65' at the end of counter led by Luis Suarez.
Gundogan eased the nerves of the home team in the 78' by scoring his 2⃣nd of the night🙌. Substitute Jesus Navas' pass was blocked off the line but it fell kindly to Gundogan who had all the time in the world to convert the chance😏.
With that win, City have 7⃣ points and are poised to join Barca in the next round after the remaining two games. After a winless streak of 6 games in all competitions, the English club has bounced back in style😎.
