Man. City maintain perfect start to UCL.

Manchester City continued their perfect start to the Champions League group stage with a comfortable 3-0 victory at Marseille.

The visitors dominated from the outset, with Ferran Torres opening the scoring after Kevin de Bruyne got in behind the Marseille defense and squared for a tap-in. Ilkay Gundowan and Raheem Sterling scored in the second period to wrap up the win .

Marseille rarely troubled Ederson in the City goal. Nemanja Radonjic’s speculative effort from 30 yards was easily saved, while Florian Thauvin hit the outside of a post after the break, although Ederson had it covered.

“It is important to start the Champions League with two victories. We are close now to being in the last 16 but still we are just in the beginning, improving.” Said Guardiola
