Messi’s took his personal tally to 90 goals while playing for the club at UEFA Champions league Football tournament.
It was a tense night on field when the two world’s best football clubs came face to face. Even though Barcelona took the first lead when Lionel Messi their star player scored the 21st minute goal to give his team an initial lead. But Ilkay Gundogan’s free kick brought Manchester United back into the game. The win was a tribute to their coach Guardiola, who worked hard with his every team player. It was a monumental win for Manchester City and satisfying for the coach because he was the brain and skill setter behind the club 14 wins from 2008-2012.
After the first half, city’s approach towards the game was more aggressive and attacking, which not only made the Barcelona players to commit mistakes but also they lost the game by two goal margin. Sergio Busquets and De Bruyne took the whole game away from Barcelona. Even though Barcelona got a chance to score another but they missed it by a whisker.
In the 51st minute, the Belgium midfielder scored a goal when he whipped the ball through the nets which gave Manchester City an advantage by 2-1. The assault didn’t ended there as Gundogon and Sergio Busquets score the third goal in 74th minute which was a clear picture of team effort and coordination.
It was a big sigh of relief for City as they lost all the previous encounters with Barcelona including the 4-0 defeat at Camp Nou two weeks ago.
It was a bad night for Barcelona as they failed to secure a progress to the last 16 with two matches still in their kitty. On the other hand Manchester city team should advance with a draw at third placed Borussia Monchengladbach in round five.
