MANCHESTER CITY 5-3 MONACO: PEP GUARDIOLA'S SIDE TWICE COME FROM BEHIND TO TAKE FIRST LEG VICTO


Manchester City surely liked their performance after a brilliant win against Monaco that took the lead twice.

Eight goals were scored between the two sides, in a game which saw Man-City come from behind twice.

They were important goals but the last one changed the game. Manchester City ahead, Monaco level, Monaco ahead, Manchester City level, Monaco ahead, Manchester City level, Manchester City ahead. And then even further ahead.

It was a thrilling performance on both sides

This was the first time eight goals had been scored in the first leg of a Champions League tie, and the first in a European Cup tie since Real Madrid beat Swarovski Tirol 9-1 on October 24, 1990.

Leroy Sane nets the eight goal of a brilliant Champions League tie as Manchester City edged past Monaco.

Both sides took the risk in a fascinastingend-to-end display which saw braces from Sergio Aguero and Radamel Falcao.
