Man City vs Bayern turned out to be an absolute one sided fixture as the Cityzens rampant 3 goals give them a big advantage heading into the second leg, next week.

Man City vs Bayern: Match Summary

Erling Haaland nearly opened the scoring 13 minutes in when he closed down Yann Somer who took too long to get the ball out of his feet, but the Swiss keeper escaped.

Some quick link-up play led to the Haaland getting his first shot off 21 minutes in but the Norweigan took his effort too early despite having more space than he probably thought he did.

Jamal Musila had Bayern's first good chance four minutes later but Ruben Dias made a great block to deny a likely goal.

But just as Bayern looked to be threatening, Rodri went up the other end and bent a stunning strike past Sommer to put City in front.

City should have had a second 33 minutes in after some confusion in the box saw the ball fall to a free Ilkay Gundogan but Sommer made a top save.

Second Half:

The Bavarians started the second 45 of Man City vs Bayern on top, with Leroy Sane causing a lot of issues down City's right, forcing several good saves out of Ederson. Ake and Dias also had to make some big blocks to keep Bayern at bay.

Manchester City then began to dominate the match midway through the second half, with Sommer forced into action to save from Ake and tip an effort over the bar.

However, the Sky Blues were dealt a big blow 67 minutes in as Kevin De Bruyne was forced off due to injury.

Bayern, meanwhile, brought on Sadio Mane to try and capitalise on the chances they continued to have.

Less than a minute after Mane came on, though, City added a second. Upamecano made another error, which allowed Grealish to slip in Haaland who crossed to Bernardo Silva. The Portuguese was free in the box and headed past Sommer.

Substitute Julian Alvarez nearly added a third for the Manchester outfit with 15 minutes to go but Sommer got down to save. However, it took City just a minute after that chance to get their third. John Stones headed a pass across the box for Erling Haaland to kill off the game and potentially the tie.
