Newcastle Hold Man City As Bayern Reach Cup Final

Nigerian youngster Kelechi Iheanacho was an ununused substitute as Manchester City were forced to a 1-1 Premier League draw by Newcastle on Tuesday night at St. James’ Park.

Sergio Aguero put City ahead before Vurnon Anita levelled the score for the home side.

Aldo on Tuesday night, Bayern Munich kept their treble dreams alive by defeating Werder Btemen 2-0 in their DFB Cup semi-final clash at the Allianz Arena.

Thomas Muller scored both Bayern goals.

At St James Park, Pappise Cisse would have scored the first goal of the night but headed just over the bar.

Aguero then opened the scoring in the 14th minute from an offside position, heading in Aleksandar Kolarov free-kick.

Moussa Sissiko had Newcastle’s best chance after intercepting a City pass, went past two defenders but hit a weak shot which Joe Hart calmly saved.

Vurnon Anita made it 1-1 in the 31st minute, cutting in from the right before hitting a low left-foot strike which came off the post and into the net.

Newcastle almost went ahead through Aleksandar Mitrovic after good work from Andros Townsend from the right but Pablo Zabaleta headed the cross for a corner.

Aguero had a chance for City only to hit his low drive straight at Karl Darlow.

The Magpies would have won the game towards the end of the game but Wynaldum hit his point blank shot straight at Hart.

It was Newcastle’s first point against City in seven years, while Rafa Benitez remains unbeaten at home since joining Newcastle.

With the draw, City go one point ahead of Arsenal while Newcastle remain 19th in the league table.
