However Manchester City were always likely to come back into the tie and that has proved the case. Pep Guardiola’s side have upped the tempo and it caused a Sevilla error that led to the goal.
The ruthless City press led to Alex Telles giving the ball away on the edge of his own box. In a flash, Julian Alvarez had slid the ball in behind for Rico Lewis to score his first Manchester City goal.
We have a new record holder!! 🤩

The 17-year-old becomes City’s youngest ever scorer in the Champions League and also just the second Englishman to score before his 18th birthday. If Lewis can emulate the other, Jude Bellingham, in any way, he will be on the right track to a stellar career.
