Pep Guardiola’s men produced one of their best nights on the European stage with an impressive win that saw Gabriel Jesus hit a perfect hat-trick.
Man City came into the game with ruthless dominant form but it was Dinamo who first changed the score-sheet in the 10th minute through Daniel Olmo. The Spanish star beautifully converted Damian Kadzior’s assist to hand the host a perfect lead in the first half of the game.
Man City continued to dominate the possession, threatening Dinamo’s defence with aggressive attack led by Gabriel Jesus. The Brazilian found the back of the net for Man City in the 34th minute with a wonder finish to balance the score-card all thanks to Riyad Mahrez’s assist. Jesus proved he was unstoppable against with another strike in the 50th minute courtesy of Phil Foden’s assist.
The 22-year-old Selecao star grabbed his hat-trick of the night four minutes later, becoming the youngest Brazilian player to reach 10 goals in the Champions League -overtaking Neymar who did so aged 23 years and 75 days. Phil Foden capped the victory for Guardiola’s men in style through 84 minute wonder strike as Man City walked their way into the UCL Round 16 stage with 14 points as leaders of Group C.
