Hoffenheim vs Manchester City, Champions League

A goal from Sergio Aguero and a late David Silva strike gave Manchester City a 2-1 victory at Hoffenheim as they bounced back from their opening Champions League defeat.

Manchester City players celebrate after the UEFA Champions League group F football match between TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and Manchester City at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena in Sinsheim, southwestern Germany, on 2 October 2018.

Silva poached the victor with just three minutes left and Guardiola was delighted with his team's fighting spirit and patience against Hoffenheim's dogged defending.

However, the visitors struck back just seven minutes later as Silva picked out Leroy Sane brilliantly and the German winger held it up within the six-yard box before finding Aguero, who eventually fired home.

"It's a fantastic result and it was the only way to put right the Lyon result and we did that".

"This competition isn't always a red carpet".

David Silva (Manchester City).

He said: "Maybe we need to live a (tough) moment in the competitions".

"We have to do this step by step". Referee Damir Skomina did not award the spot kick.

"I don't want to talk about officials", insisted the City boss.

But Aguero levelled only minutes later and then, with time running out, Silva found a victor for Pep Guardiola's side. I've had a lot at Barca and Bayern but he's on that list.

Wednesday's session took place in Bad Schonborn, just 10 miles outside Hoffenheim before they flew back from Frankfurt.

"It was really impressive how we came out after half-time", said Nagelsmann, whose side had two clear chances after the break when Belfodil and Florian Grillitsch both went close.
