Heading 2-1 at the interval and reduced to ten or twenty minutes from the end, Manchester City continued to win, in Gelsenkirchen, its eighth final trip in the gut (2-3).
Schalke 04 2-3 Manchester City
Objectives: Bentaleb (39is s.p., 45is s.p.) for Schalke 04 // Agüero (19is), Sané (85)is) and Sterling (90is) for the city.
It seems that the Schalke 04 was an old Bundesliga dolphin stranded on a beach of doubts, that there was nothing to be hoped for and that the German group had the perfect appearance of the victim to undress in his living room. Perhaps because the story was so presented, these guys were not ready for anything, not ready to finish with a goal early in the break and a numerical superiority of more than twenty minutes to manage against Manchester City. So, we saw Schalke lead then shake, hope then collapse, all five minutes from the end. Such as? Strangely, but inexorably.

It is standing, frozen. The clock of the Veltins-Arena turns, says 21h19, but Domenico Tedesco, he refuses to move. Tonight is a bit like his: a night to change the course of a galley season, where fans get more to the stadium to scream their desire to see the corner stage change name and where we get away from a Bundesliga where Schalke 04 points to a fourteenth place without taste. But now, the stasis is here and seems to constantly come back to the young German technician, a boy born three days later than Luka Modrić. "Why so much hate?"It seems that he is wondering in his technical area while Ralf Fährmann has remained with a discount Bruma to negotiate.The sequel is a momentum unleashed by the local goalkeeper, who leaves Salif Sané in the storm and sees David Silva rise: Aguero is at the finish, cruel Logical in view of the start of the game under the control of the Guardiola band Logic when it is known that Fährmann has already saved a header from the Argentine striker and easily captured a distant firecracker Kevin De Bruyne. logic does not necessarily have the honors of a round of 16 of C1. As a result, after a thrill from a vulture of Mark Uth, the brothel was invited to Gelsenkirchen: in twenty minutes, Schalke 04 returned the case thanks to two penalties, one of which is validated after two minutes of bizarre debate, transformed by Nabil Bentaleb What to Relax German, forever.
And all of a sudden, Sané
Angry, Raheem Sterling shows her teeth back from the locker room, while David Silva gently takes turntables for the evening. An evening that Sergio Agüero wants to do on his own, what his former team-mate Matija Nastasić opposes with joy before seeing the Argentine trigger lose the frame. The second period is above all a painting in which the English waves crash into a blue wall and where Bernardo Silva is struggling to leave his head a few hours after receiving the roses from the hands of Pep Guardiola. That's all? Too simple: twenty minutes from the end, Nicolás Otamendi is overwhelmed by Burgstaller, takes the second yellow of the day and leaves Guardiola in front of an unpredictable situation. Manchester City is in a maze, where De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva can not find the exit and around which German turns like a vulture. How to get out? In a flash for the story, taken from the left foot of a country boy, thrown into the noise twelve minutes from the end by Pep Guardiola. Who? Leroy Sané, obviously, author of a sumptuous free kick on the last notes of the evening. On a springboard, City took off and Sterling beat Fährmann in the wake after Oczipka misleading Ederson. The city was shaken, but the city is miraculously. Schalke 04 (5-3-2): Fährmann – Caligiuri, Bruma, Sané, Nastasić, Oczipka – Serdar, Bentaleb, McKennie (Skrzybski, 78is) – Uth (Harit, 88is), Mendyl (Burgstaller, 65)is). coach: Domenico Tedesco.
Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson – Walker, Fernandinho, Otamendi, Laporte – Gündoğan, De Bruyne (Zincheko, 87is), D. Silva (Kompany, 70is) – B. Silva, Aguero (Sané, 78)is), Sterling. coach: Pep Guardiola.
