Manchester City sent out a warning to their European rivals as they smashed seven past Schalke in the Champions League last night.
Sergio Aguero struck twice and Leroy Sane produced a devastating display against his former club as quadruple-chasing City ran out 7-0 winners to complete a 10-2 aggregate rout of the Bundesliga strugglers.
Sane scored City ‘s third and set up three other goals while the similarly impressive Raheem Sterling also got on the scoresheet along with Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus at the Etihad Stadium.
Manager Pep Guardiola hailed the performance City side, even though they were up against a Schalke team low on confidence, and had no complaints. “We were solid, we didn’t concede chances and I think in the last 15 minutes of the first half and the second half we were incredibly good,” Guardiola revealed. “We were quick, dynamic and the transitions were good.
We scored seven goals. I know Schalke are having a tough period – the confidence must not be on top – but even with that you have to do your job and we did it.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
