Bernardo Silva Hits Stunning Strike To Put Manchester City In Control Against Sporting

For those of you watching PSG vs Real Madrid on Tuesday night, you might have missed Bernardo Silva's incredible strike against Sporting.

Champions League nights do occasionally leave us with some tough choices over which game to watch, if you don't want to get your laptop to watch two at a time.

If you've got much sense of Tuesday then you'd be watching PSG against Real, unless you happen to be a Manchester City fan of course.

Assuming that's the option you've gone with, then have no fear we're here to fill you in with what's going on in Lisbon, and it's no surprise to learn that City are winning.

Pep Guardiola's went ahead after just seven minutes through Riyad Mahrez, but had to wait another 20 minutes to double the lead, and boy was it worth the wait.

Bernardo Silva struck with a stunning goal just before the half hour mark, slamming the ball home on the bounce as it sat up perfectly for him following a City corner.

There was talk before the season begun that Bernardo had wanted out at City, after falling down the pecking order in the previous campaign.

Arsenal were linked with the player but no one came forward to match the Premier League champions' asking price, and it's a good job.

The former Monaco player has been in incredible form this term and helped City back to the top of the table and into the last 16 of the Champions League.

Before half time Phil Foden managed to make it 3-0 and then Silva made it four shortly after. With no goals in Paris, despite an entertaining opening half, maybe those who chose to watch City were right.

Still, it could have been worse, you could have actually chosen to go out of your way to watch a Manchester United match, on a stream!
