Jesus on the wheel as Manchester City edge out Dinamo Zagreb

Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus scored his second Champions League hat-trick as the club ended their Group C campaign with a convincing 4-1 win over Croatian hotshots Dinamo Zagreb.

City who were already guaranteed their spot as winners of the group came back from a goal behind to defeat Dinamo who were initially put in the lead by Dani Olmo.

Damian Kadzior floated in a dangerous ball that was met by Olmo with a volley, the ball, coming over his shoulder. Dinamo defended strongly after that and although Manchester City claimed possession, they were making little headway.

Olmo’s goal put Dinamo into the runners-up spot but the Croatians were immediately deposed when City’s Gabriel Jesus headed home the leveller in the 34th minute despite two of their players being down injured.

With the two Zagreb players down injured, City didn’t stop play and worked the ball out to Riyad Mahrez on the right who floated a cross into the box. Jesus towered above his marker to head home which fired off angry protests from the Zagreb players who surrounded the referee demanding to know why play wasn’t stopped.

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City were in control of the match from then on with youngster Phil Foden participating in creating a chance for Gabriel Jesus in the 50th minute, seeking out Benjamin Mendy who whipped in a cross that was met by Jesus in the 54th minute and eventually netting one for himself via a low cross form Portuguese star, Bernardo Silva in the 83rd minute.
