VIDEO: Man City vs Cardiff 5-0 (Goals & Highlights)
MATCH REPORT: MAN CITY 5-0 CARDIFF CITY
The midweek disappointment against Lyon was quickly forgotten as the Welsh side were brushed aside in confident manner.
First-half goals from Sergio Aguero, Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan left the home side reeling on the ropes and a brace from sub Riyad Mahrez after the break completed the 5-0 win.
Chances came thick and fast after the re-start with Aguero denied a couple more and Sane’s header striking the outside of the post.
Cardiff, to their credit, kept fighting, but the more opportunities the Blues created, the more certain it appeared that the hosts were In line for further punishment – and midway through the second period, City scored again.
A fine pass from Sterling who spotted Gundogan’s run on the left and the German’s low cross was stroked home by sub Mahrez.
Phil Foden came close to scoring his first and the Blues fifth late on – but it was the Algerian playmaker who took that honour, side-stepping his marker in the box before finishing crisply from 15 yards.
Terrific stuff, Blues.
