Welcome to your quick recap.

Manchester City win after playing a real nice and professional win. A dogged result though as it could and maybe should have been at least one more. A strong side is what Pep started with and with good performances from the lads they dominated most of the match, winning in the end.

A tough match filled with domination from City and some finishing chances. Man City played decent enough and move to a perhaps decisive lead as they head to the Spanish capital next week.

One where City was in control with possession and chances created. They played a similarly chance filled second half with Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden playing really well. Foden, especially so.

City had so many players who did well like Ake and Gundogan.

The story of the night is that City take a nice lead into the second leg.

A winning day of football.
