Manchester City seem to complete their revival mode as Pep Guardiola’s men got their revenge over Barcelona, defeating the Spanish giant 3-1 in their Champions League group stage match day 4.
Playing in front of their home crowd, Man City were determined in getting a win to relaunch their European journey, but things didn’t start off well as they found themselves trailing through Lionel Messi’s effort.
However, just when things not looking bright for the home side, they were able to get an equalizing goal from Ilkay Gundogan’s finish inside the penalty area.
That 1-1 score line regained City’s confidence as they pour forward vigorously in the second half and added two more goals through Kevin De Bruyne and Gundogan’s second.
It was a fitting result indeed for such energetic performance from Guardiola’s men as they can now erase their disappointing 4-0 defeat at Camp Nou.
That win still doesn’t guarantee passage into the knock out stage though for City, but they now will only need a draw in their next game in order to qualify.
Meanwhile, another English representative, Arsenal also came away with all three points following a late 3-2 win over Ludogorest Razgard.
Gunners’ saw themselves going two goals down early in the second half, but were able to get back on level terms in that 45 minutes period through Granit Xhaka and Olivier Giroud.
Arsene Wenger’s men finally sealed all three points in that game when Mesut Ozil scored a wonderful goal two minutes before the final 90 minutes.
