Bernardo Silva destroys two Bayern Munich players with FOUR consecutive nutmegs in Man City win, he was unstoppable

Bernardo Silva pulled off an incredible four consecutive nutmegs in Manchester City’s crucial 3-0 home win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Pep Guardiola’s men inched one step closer to the semi-finals after their scintillating performance in the first-leg Champions League quarter-final clash at the Etihad.

Rodri broke the deadlock in the first half after his stunning long-range effort beat a helpless Yann Sommer and landed in the top-left corner of the Bayern net.

Silva added his name to the scoresheet late in the second half after firing a bullet header past Sommer, with Erling Haaland grabbing City’s third only six minutes later.

During the early stages of the second half, Silva singlehandedly took on Alphonso Davies and Leon Goretzka from out wide in stunning fashion.

After receiving the ball out on the right, the 28-year-old City star initially nutmegged Davies and then Goretzka during his charge into the Bayern box.

A scrambling Davies eventually made a late challenge on Silva and appeared to have the better of his man, only for the City winger to keep applying pressure on him.

Silva then managed to nutmeg the 22-year-old Canadian left-back twice as both men tried to gain control of the ball.

The Portugal international was able to poke the ball into the path of City teammate John Stones, whose powerful strike failed to hit the target.

Speaking after the match, Man City boss Guardiola insisted that Silva is a “special” player and “one of the best players I have trained in my life.”

“He is one of the best players I have trained in my life. He’s special,” he said.

“Bernardo Silva is a football player. What does it mean? He will play everywhere because he understands the game. Bernardo has the ability to read.

“But Bernardo is such an important player in these [types] of games. He can play holding midfield, false nine, he score recently a lot of goals.

“He is a player if you say play in this position, he understands everything.”
