Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City team dominated Leipzig, winning 7-0 to secure their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Leipzig struggled to create chances in attack and had to rely on last-ditch defending. City, on the other hand, were confident and aggressive.
They were fortunate to score their first goal after VAR identified a handball, but after that, they never looked back. Erling Haaland scored a hat-trick, with his second goal coming just 78 seconds after the first.
Leipzig was frustrated with some of the refereeing decisions, but it didn’t matter as Haaland continued to score.
Ilkay Gündoğan added another goal to make it 4-0 shortly after halftime, and Haaland went on to become only the third player to score five goals in a single Champions League game.
Kevin De Bruyne added a beautiful goal from outside the box to complete the rout for City, who are now closer to achieving their goal of winning the competition.
