Sparkling Silva earns Manchester City precious victory

| 03 October, 2018, 13:20

Manchester City overcame a first-minute setback to relaunch their Champions League campaign with what manager Pep Guardiola hailed as an "important" 2-1 victory at Hoffenheim, clinched by a late David Silva victor, on Tuesday.

City, who had lost to Lyon in their first group game, were stunned in the opening minute as Kerem Demirbay found Ishak Belfodil, who ran clear to slip a low finish beyond Ederson.

However, the lead was short-lived as Sergio Aguero leveled scores for Man City, six minutes later to make it 1-1.

On Hoffenheim's game against Man City, he added: "The first ever meeting between the clubs and City need to get a result after their shock home reverse to Lyon on Matchday 1".

Baumann produced a stunning one-handed stop to thwart Aguero again before the break, but the hosts regained a foothold in the second half.


Vincent Kompany says there is more than just three points at stake when Manchester City visit Liverpool on Super Sunday. Since then we have seen them go 3-0 beating up on Cardiff 5-0 and dominating Brighton 2-0, but the scoreboard didn't tell the truth that was 80% possession for the Sky Blues and 28 shots.

"I don't want to talk about the officials, I want to be on the bench, with my players in the next game", he said. The Germans club was able to get a 2-2 draw in their first match in this tournament and the number of goals in each match is something we are seeing often.

Justice was served, though, when David Silva robbed the ball from Stefan Posch inside the Hoffenheim area in the 87th minute, shooting past Baumann for the victor.

"Losing at home (to Lyon) made things tough and conceding so early (at Hoffenheim) was hard, but we fought against everything today", said Guardiola.

City defender Kyle Walker was fortunate to escape with just a yellow card for a bad challenge on Pavel Kaderabek in the second half, while the visitors thought they should have had a penalty when Baumann appeared to bring down Sane after missing the ball.
