Bayern 2 v Man City 3
This was a great game - highly entertaining but sometimes for the wrong reasons.
City started the game in their usual attacking mode and That consistant striker Aguero put them in front after a horrific mix up by the hosts....... Game over we all thought. Not a bit of it. The referee was handing out Yellow cards like The Salvation Army handing out the War Cry.
A decision for hands in the penalty area took 4 Minutes to award the penalty. The penalty put Bayern level and after this the physical Germans dictated the game with some good counter attacking but they could not score. Then another penalty for a push in the area gave them another penalty which again was converted.
From then on it looked all over when City had a player sent off.
But a crucial substitution brought on Mane ( who used to play for Beyern ). A stunning free kick levelled the score against the run of
play and in injury time Sterling tapped in a winning goal.
Highly entertaining fare.
