Just when other English teams were losing and drawing, City did win in style all the way in Shaktar. No one thought it would be this easy especially with the daunting stadium Shaktar have but then, Manchester City has been down this road before and they knew what was needed to sort things out.
Shaktar started brightly and you could see tje desire and intent from their game coupled with flashes of brilliance from their talisman of the night; Taison. They were unlucky not to be ahead or even pull level shortly after City scored.
Manchester City broke the deadlock when Mahrez pounced on a rebound to blast the ball into the back of the net. Shortly afterwards, Gundogan scored brilliantly too just to put the game beyond all doubt. City were not done as De Bruyne released Gabriel Jesus to finish the game and increase the scoreline to 3-0 for the night.
The scoreline was never a justification for how impressive Shakhtar were tonight. They matched City in every department but you could see why City were a class above them with their swift play and decisiveness.
City are definitely favourite but as I would say, it is too early to tell and football is full of surprises.
Thank you for your time.
