Premier LeagueManchester City is one step closer to the league title for the eighth time. Without Kevin De Bruyne, who got the relief, Leeds would not have been useful. It was 0-4 dry. Rodri, Nathan Ake, Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho scored the goals.
Earlier in the day, Liverpool beat Newcastle and so City knew what to do when visiting Leeds. There is no De Bruyne at the base with visitors. The Red Devil took a rest from Guardiola with the goal of the Champions League match in Madrid on Wednesday.
City escaped a deficit after just three minutes. Cancelo slipped, after which Rodrigo was allowed to lunge at Ederson. Ravenha was there too, but Rodrygo lingered too long and chose his success. chance gone. Opportunities that you should not miss against City.
Prove it again. Because after twelve minutes, the first opportunity for visitors was hit immediately. Cancelo put a free kick on Rodri’s head – which was completely discharged – and the Spaniard extended the ball into the goal. Football at City cannot be called brilliant. The important lead was on the board.
Soon in the second half, Aki doubled that bonus. From a corner kick, the Dutchman extended Laporte’s header past goalkeeper Meslier. Fifteen minutes before the time, Jesus turned off the lights completely on Elland Road after a beautiful pass from Foden. In the last minute, Fernandinho scored the final numbers 0-4 with a long shot. De Bruyne watched it all from the bench and later from the warm-up area.
Mission accomplished for the city. Four more games to go.
But the first goal machine Benzema, artist Modric and “Moro” Kevin De Bruyne and Co. are waiting at the Santiago Bernabeu. Will City qualify for the championship final for the second year in a row? The answer will follow on Wednesday evening.
