Phil Foden Played The Most Beautiful Pass For Manchester City's Champions League Opener

Phil Foden's pass for Manchester City's opener against Club Brugges on Tuesday night was an absolute piece of art, and Joao Canelo's finish wasn't bad either.

Pep Guardiola's team are once again on the trail of winning City's first ever Champions League title, having lost their first final in the competition to Chelsea last season.

After losing to Lionel Messi's wonder goal on Matchday Two, the Premier League champions were up against Brugge, who drew with PSG in Matchday One, on Tuesday.

City dominated the early going but it took a moment of pure magic to open up the scoring on the half hour mark, as Foden provided a brilliant assist.

The England midfielder played a ball over the top of the host's defence and found Canelo's run perfectly, with the full back controlling the ball with his chest before slotting home through the keeper's legs.


If City fans were worrying that their complete dominance of the first half wasn't going to go as rewarded as they deserved, they were soon placated.

With just two minutes of the first half to go they won a penalty, when Riyad Mahrez was caught by Stanley Nsoki following a lovely move.

Mahrez stepped up to make it 2-0 heading into the break.
