Manchester City faced a new date in the Champions League after its disappointing debut about two weeks ago, where it lost 2 goals by 1 at home against Olimpic de Lyon. Now it was its turn to face Hoffenheim, who came for a 2 goals draw in a great game against Shakhtar.
The match began in Germany with an early Belfoldi goal in the first minute, Guardiola’s team would not take long to tie the action, at minute 7 “El Kun” would make the first goal for the City after a great play by Sané. The game would enter a boring stage where both teams would try to go on the attack but without much danger to the goals defended by Baumann and Ederson.
At the minute 87 David Silva would dress as a hero to take advantage of the only mistake of the German saga. He stole a ball from Posch in the small area and finished off with the left leg making the 1-2 and giving the first three points to Manchester City. This places it second in a nice group F, leading by Lyon.
The French were losing their game against Shakhtar, 2 goals by 0 at home but without their public, after the penalty imposed by UEFA for the incidents that occurred in a European League match against CSKA Moscow, where there were flares, they caused disturbances in the stands, racist attitudes and a blockade of the stairs of the stadium.
Only 2 minutes were enough for Lyon to tie the action, the first would come from Dembélé head to the 70th minute and on the next play would mark Leo Dubois at minute 72, putting the 2 to 2 on the board that would end up being the final result leaving Shakhtar third of the group with 2 points and in the basement to Hoffenheim with one point, but still with chances to qualify for the next round.
