The referee puts German outfit, Leipzig out of their misery at the Etihad as Man City cruise into the Champions League quarter-finals with a 7-0 home win, triumphing 8-1 on aggregate.
It’s another match which will live long in the memory for Haaland, who ends the game with five goals
The first was a controversial penalty, but there was no doubt about the others – two close-range rebounds and two powerful volleys following corners. Gundogan joined him on the scoresheet with a low drive, and De Bruyne did likewise with a trademark long shot at the death.
City’s 7-0 victory is the joint-best in their Champions League history, alongside a win over Schalke by the same scoreline in March 2019, while the Norwegian striker has joined Robert Lewandowski as just the second player to net 10 or more Champions League goals in a single campaign for two different clubs, doing so with Borussia Dortmund and City.
With the Manchester based outfit in this kind of form, nobody will want to play City in the next round.
