Manchester City taught 'best lesson' by Hoffenheim in UCL - Pep Guardiola

Manchester City taught 'best lesson' by Hoffenheim in UCL - Pep Guardiola

City hit back nearly immediately when Silva's pass split the Hoffenheim defence and found Leroy Sane who put Aguero into space to tap home the equaliser on eight minutes.

Well, they've won only one of their previous five games.

Upon the resumption of the second half, Pep Guardiola's directed proceedings, with Riyadh Mahrez coming in for misfiring Raheem Sterling in the 70th minute in a tactical substitution.

Sergio AGUERO scored goal number 8 of the season in Manchester City's 2-1 win against Hoffenheim in the Champions League.

Pep told the media after the game: "Gundogan has a problem with his muscle, I don't know his injury". Those two will still be strong enough for Hoffenheim, particularly if we can control the play from minute one.

Many good teams have come unstuck due to the Europa League and this is most likely what Nevin believes will be what ultimately restricts his former club.

Political deadlines are often fuzzy but Canada and the U.S. appear to be working towards some major compromises and a NAFTA deal. Congress to get the deal fast-tracked and voted on by December 1, ahead of a new incoming Mexican government.

"We are a step below the history in Europe of Liverpool or the Spanish teams or Bayern Munich or Inter Milan".

Guardiola was unhappy at Leroy Sané being denied a penalty when Oliver Baumann appeared to pull him down in the second half but the City manager - who was serving a touchline ban when City lost to Lyon at the Etihad - refused to discuss this afterwards.

However, Silva popped up with the victor to delight City's travelling fans.

The teams meet again in Manchester in the final round of matches in December and Hoffenheim head coach Julian Nagelsmann, just 31, said the defeat gives them something to build on.

The former Heracles star and Netherlands U21 worldwide made a good impression with nine tackles (more than any other player) and four interceptions.

There is still plenty of action to follow in Group F and there is now a realistic chance of City winning the group, but will have to work hard against three sides that have already shown how capable they are.
