man of the match: Substitution was made after one hour to spare the opponent. Erling Haaland gave Leipzig nightmares with five goals on another fine evening.

Sweet cream on the cake: Pep Guardiola has galvanized Kevin De Bruyne by sending him – more than the latter was kind – to the bench in recent weeks. The Belgian answered the day with an excellent game and a delicious curl.

Erling Halland. A name that appears on the scoreboard five times and will give Leipzig nightmares for a long time to come.

A (strict) penalty as a warm-up, a rebound after De Bruyne hit the crossbar and a lucky corner kick. The massive forward didn’t need much to score his fifth hat-trick this season.

In the first half, Leipzig secretly hoped that the final whistle had already sounded, but Haaland’s hunger was not yet satisfied. Gundogan quickly got his wicket before the Norwegian absorbed all interest with two strokes shortly after the break.

With five goals and after a mundane hour, Pep Guardiola thought it was enough. Didn’t the Spanish coach want to break his old friend Lionel Messi’s record?

In the Haaland show, there was also a strong supporting role for Kevin De Bruyne. He performed in the shadows and put the final score 7-0 on the board with a great curl. All doubts swept away.

The same applies to Manchester City’s chances in the Champions League – especially with Haaland in its ranks.
