Young Boys 1 - 3 Manchester City (Oct-25-2023) Champions League Highlights

Erling Haaland ended his Champions League goal drought with a second-half double to earn Manchester City a 3-1 win at Young Boys and maintain the holders' 100 per cent record in the group stage.

The Norwegian had gone five games - equating to 543 minutes - in the competition without a goal - and missed six more good chances in Bern - but ended his barren spell with a penalty and then a rasping right-footed shot, as City were given a scare in Switzerland.

After a goalless first half where City missed a host of first-half chances, Manuel Akanji gave the visitors the lead on the defender's return to his homeland, but the treble winners were pegged back immediately as Meschack Elia scored a wonderful chip over Ederson on the break.

City saw a Julian Alvarez goal ruled out by VAR for a Jack Grealish handball in the build-up, but then Haaland scored from the spot with just over 20 minutes to go after Rodri was fouled, before putting a high finish into the net with his right foot in the final minutes of the game.
