a precious lead to take to the Bernabeu.

Manchester City v Sporting

A five-star performance from Manchester City means they are as close as possible to the last eight of the Champions League. The reigning Premier League champions were far too good for Sporting. They proved that after scoring four goals inside the first 45 minutes. Mahrez scored the opener after a VAR check ruled in his favour. Bernardo scored the first of his two goals thanks to a piled diver from inside the penalty box.

Foden then tapped in Mahrez’s cross to make it three. Then Bernardo grabbed his second when his shot was deflected into the back of the net. City did not let up in the second half, and Bernardo was denied his hat-trick after being flagged offside.

Sterling scored the best goal of the night as his stunning drive from outside the box sailed into the top corner.
