UCL: Man City Blow Off Shalke’s Tedesco’s Future In 7 Goals Blitz

Manchester City thrashed Schalke in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie to confirm their passage to the quarter-finals.

According to reports monitored on BBC Sports, Sergio Aguero opened the scoring from the spot and added a second three minutes later when Raheem Sterling’s backheel set him up from six yards.

Leroy Sane drilled in the third and picked up a hat-trick of assists after the break as City ran riot.

Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus also scored.

After slotting into the far corner in the first half, Sane set-up Sterling with a wonderful curling cross which the England forward smashed into the top corner.

Silva pounced on Sane’s cut-back to make it 5-0 before substitute Foden rounded the goalkeeper after he was played in by the German winger. Jesus made sure he had a slice of the pie with a late curling strike.

With the humiliating loss, the Guardiola men might have paved an easy exit door for Domenico Tedesco has the sack hammer dangling on his head before the game.

City, who came from behind in the first leg in Germany to win 3-2, were knocked out in the quarter-finals of last year’s competition by Liverpool and have never won the Champions League.
