Manchester City started the match brightly and scored both their goals in the opening 20 minutes. Kevin De Bruyne scored the first goal, putting Manchester City ahead in the 12th minute. De Bruyne has now scored eight UEFA Champions League goals; five of those have come in the knockout phase.

Manchester City will next play against Everton in the FA Cup on March 20.
