*Goals: Belfodil 1′ – Aguero 8′, Silva 87′

This is Man City’s first victory in the 2018-2019 Champions League, after a shocking 1-2 loss to Lyon at home in the opening match.

Silva scored the decisive goal, bringing victory to Man City.

Right in the first minute, a mistake in the offside trap caused Man City to concede.

Controlling the game in the following minutes, Man City found the equalizer thanks to a pass that tore through David Silva’s Hoffenheim defense.

Man City had a good chance to take the lead a few minutes later.

Despite showing danger in counter-attacks, Man City did not show certainty in defense.

Hoffenheim played well but defensive mistakes caused them to drop a point at the end of the match.

Under the direction of Julian Nagelsmann, the 31-year-old coach – the youngest in Champions League history, Hoffenheim advocates attacking rather than cowering on defense against an opponent highly regarded for its ability to control.

Midway through the second half, the German representative avoided a penalty when goalkeeper Baumann brought down Sane during a counterattack by Man City.

Moving from outside the penalty area to inside to catch Bernardo Silva’s pass, the Spanish midfielder took advantage of Posch’s hesitation, stole the ball and scored diagonally to bring the winning goal for Man City.

This victory helped Man City end a series of four consecutive defeats in the Champions League and helped them rise to second place in Group F. The fact that the remaining match of this group between Lyon and Shakhtar Donetsk resulted in a 2-2 draw is a fact.
