Manchester City came to life after losing to rival City Man United and defeated Dynamo (Zagreb) by Maksimir. Even before this match, the `Nationals` had secured first place in Group C, but they still played their last Champions League group stage game seriously and ended with four wins and two draws. Today`s result as well as Atalanta`s victory over Shakhtar (Donetsk) have left Dynamo not only outside the Champions League, but also outside the Euro tournaments as a whole, as the Croats finished last. Otherwise the match started well for the hosts and they led after a great goal by Danny Olmo (10 `). However, Manchester City made a complete hat trick for Gabriel Jesus (34 `50 `54 `). Phil Foden formed the final score six minutes before the end.
John Stones` injury deepened Joseph Guardiola`s problems in defense. Brazilian Fernandinho, who has often acted as a central defender this season, missed the match forecast by contact with soccer tipster for punishment. Aimeric Laporte is still injured. Nicholas Otamendi remained the only solid central defender. His partner today was Eric Garcia. Otherwise, the changes Pep Guardiola had made were eight. Only Rhodri, Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus kept their seats on the roster, which began in the derby with Manchester United over the weekend. Young Phil Foden was also the holder. Alexander Zinchenko returned after recovering from an injury.
Nenad Bielica could not use punished central defenders Kevin Theophilus-Catherine and Dino Peric, as well as injured left-back Marin Leovac. For this reason, Captain Ademi was returned to the center of defense, and Mubanjje started on the left. Petkovic led the attack by the home side.
Maximir`s overcrowding duel started perfectly for the home side, who led in the 10th minute after Olmo`s great performance. The Spaniard detected a cross from the air to Goyak`s right, and although the shot was from a small angle, he fired Claudio Bravo, who also had to intervene better.
In the 19th minute, Gundogan fired a solid shot from the penalty area, but Livakovic intervened well and saved. Ten minutes later, Danny Olmo fired over the door, and seconds later Orsic hit a new centering header on the right, but the shot was weak and Bravo caught without issue.
In the 34th minute Gabriel Jesus equalized after a header with a header from Mares. The hosts claimed that earlier in the attack, the Brazilian had fouled Delaware, who was lying on the grass. The game continued and the hit was counted. The Dynamo captain did get a yellow card for his violent protests.
At the very end of the first half, Goyak intentionally aimed his elbow at Rhodri`s face. Chief Referee Del Sero Grande did not see the situation, but it is strange why VAR did not signal him that the Dynamo player was to receive a direct red card here.
City decided everything to their advantage within four minutes at the beginning of the second part. In the 50s, Fodon and Jesus made a quick left combination, after which the Brazilian entered the penalty area, filmed two defenders and fired into the far corner, scoring.
