Manchester City defeated Bayern in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final KXan 36 Daily News

The first two games of the 1/4 final of the Champions League were played on Tuesday. The greatest attention was caused by the confrontation between the English “Manchester City” and the German “Bayern”. In this pairing, the batch brought together some of the top contenders for the trophy.

The English at the previous stage literally “realized” another representative of Germany – “Leipzig”, having won in the sum of two matches with a score of 8:1. Bayern defeated PSG – 3:0.

The main problem for the new mentor of Munich before this match was rightly considered the Norwegian forward of the “people of the people” Erling Haaland, who had scored more than 40 goals in all tournaments during the season.

And in the first half, Bayern’s defense coped well under the tutelage of the formidable striker. But in the 27th minute, Rodri’s shot from outside the area was a nasty surprise. The ball flew straight into the upper corner and Jan Sommer’s desperate jump was in vain.

After that, Manchester City’s home players had some more dangerous moments, but Bayern’s defenders and goalkeeper coped with these threats perfectly.

After the break, the teams began to play on a collision course, and moments of danger began to emerge for both the hosts and the guests. But it was not possible to turn them into a goal until the 71st minute. An error in the defense of “Bayern” led to a canopy of Haaland under Bernardo Silva, who drove the ball under the crossbar with his head – 2:0.

And in the 77th minute, Haaland was not covered, and Bayern conceded the third goal. It took just a second for the Norwegian wunderkind to move away from Matthijs de Ligt, who had been defending him all game, and shoot straight into the far corner.

On April 19, in the second leg, Bayern’s chances of success will be minimal.
