Manchester City put one foot in the semis

Manchester City beat Bayern Munich 3-0 in the EUFA Champions League quarter final, first leg match played at Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola came up against Thomas Tuchel who led Chelsea to the 2021 Champions League.
On the 27th minute, Rodri opened the scoring for the home side with a thunderous striker.

In the second half Bernardo Silva and Erling Haaland scored the second and third goals to send The Citizens to the second leg with a 3-0 lead.

“It was not comfortable. I’m emotionally destroyed,” said Guardiola after the match. “I’ve aged 10 more years today. It was such a demanding game. Now I have to relax, a day off for the guys, then prepare for Leicester.

“I knew exactly what we had to do. If you don’t perform really well, Bayern are able to score one, two or three. I know that. The players know that. It’s an incredible result, but we have to play our game with a huge, huge personality over there.

“I had the feeling we would have our chances and at our stadium we can do special things. I know what this win means, but we’re going there to score goals and to try to win the game.”

The return leg will be played on April 19.
