City dominate and open 3-0
City’s defeat began early on Tuesday. Manchester opened the scoring with just eight minutes, when Phil Foden tapped into a rebound from the edge of the area and kicked hard to score. At thirteen came the second: Mahrez crossed the ball into the area and Grealish completed it with a header into the goal.
With the advantage on the scoreboard, defeat seemed a matter of time. In the 32nd minute, De Bruyne received a pass from Rodri and added to expand.
Manchester keeps moving and makes 7
3-0 from the first half did not slow down Manchester City. exactly the contrary. At the start of the second stage, the home team had already shown that they wanted more. In four minutes, Mahrez received a pass from Gundogan, came forward and veered into the defense to celebrate the fourth from the Nationals. At 17, De Bruyne appeared again and kicked hard from the edge of the area to increase the count.
The sixth came at 29 with John Stones, taking advantage of a rebound inside the area to score. To close out the defeat, Nathan Ake took a corner kick and headed it in for the goal.
The life of Marcelo Bielsa’s team was not easy at the Etihad Stadium. So much so that Leeds spent the entire first half without a certain finish on the goal. The team’s best chance came only in the middle of the second half, when Stewart Dallas risked a shot from outside the area and hit the right post of the goal defended by Brazilian Ederson. But that’s it. Leeds, which they controlled entirely, did little to prevent the Manchester Massacre.
