UEFA Quarter Final – City v Munich

The UEFA quarter-final between City v Munich took place Tuesday evening at the Etihad Stadium. This was City’s 46th game for the season, still hoping to win their first Champions League trophy under Guardiola’s management.

Pep has secured a good number of titles in the last 5 years. But without a Champions League title, however, doesn’t seem like much of a win for City.

Bayern Munich has won it numerous times in the last 50 years, 6 times overall with the last being in 2020.

Saturday Southampton got a beating from City as Haaland, Grealish and Alvarez scored 4 goals between them.

Since then, Pep has only made one change to his line-up, Riyad Mahrez will be replaced by Bernardo Silva.

Former City defender Joao Cancelo will start the match on the bench along with Mane and Thomas Muller. Taking their place on the field is Leon Goretzka and Kingsley Coman and Dayot Upamecano.

At 9 their game kicks, off as Munich takes possession. Stones is seen in the center-back position and Akanji is in the right-back position. A surprise from City’s side.

City leads most of the game and a couple of close calls are seen from City’s side.

Bayern starts picking up the pace but in the 27th min, Rodni gifts a goal to the home turf. His first ever UCL goal for the club. He only ever assisted in 8 goals in the past.

A couple of minutes later De Bruyne crosses to Upamecano who misjudges the pass and Bayerns keeper diverts the shot.

A challenge from Silva caused De Ligt to twist his ankle quite badly just before halftime

For a team who hasn’t scored yet, Bayern has had over 53 percent ball possession.

Just after halftime, the Portuguese player Silva picks up the game’s first yellow card. Musiala was caught on his achilles but walked off as if nothing happened.

Some pressure is relieved as the 22-year-old defender, Alphonso Davies becomes the first Bayern player to add a yellow card to his side min later.

Alvarez comes onto the field and De Bruyne walks off in the 68th min.

Mané gets some field time as Musiala takes the bench for Bayern.

Another goal for City as Silva ranks up their score in the 70th minute.

City just misses another goal as Pavard gets appealed for a foul right after slipping in his area keeping Bayern in the game.

Norwegian striker, Haaland knocks a third goal into the net with assistance from Stones. Bayern still struggling to even score single goal.

After another torturing 17 min battle for Bayern Munich the match ends, edging City one step closer to securing their first Champions League trophy.

Man City has now gone unbeaten for 25 home games for the Champions League. Never in history has any other English club had a long run
