‘Boring’ City Champions League quarter-finalists, former Excelsior player brings fun

It was a boring break with the only big chance, because City didn’t seem really motivated despite a lot of ball. Briton Raheem Sterling was let loose past the goalkeeper, but his lob fell on Sporting goalkeeper Antonio Adan.

In the second half, the brewery immediately came to life. City forward Gabriel Jesus stunned Adan in the narrow corner, but he was offside when he played. This situation has arisen due to the intervention of the VAR.

For a moment the game seemed to go wild, but soon the game was the same as in the first half. The British are in their hands, the Portuguese are in the process of stopping.

Former Excelsior Player

At Sporting, an old acquaintance came onto the field in the 58th minute. The Englishman Marcus Edwards played for Excelsior in the Eredivisie in the 2018/19 season. The fast winger has just arrived at Sporting after coming into the final transfer window of Vitória Guimarães.
