MANCHESTER CITY got the better of RB Leipzig in a nine-goal thriller at Etihad Stadium.
Pep Guardiola’s side raced into the perfect start, when Nathan Ake gave them the lead before Nordi Mukiele’s farcical own goal made it 2-0 before the half hour mark

Christopher Nkunku got his side back into the game with a 42nd minute header, before Riyad Mahrez restored City’s two-goal lead from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time.
Nkunku then produced another stunning header after the break to make it 3-2, only for Jack Grealish to bag his first ever Champions League goal just five minutes later.
Once again Nkunku tried to get his side back into the game by netting a rasping right-footed effort in the 73rd minute.
Bu Joao Cancelo once again dashed the Frenchman’s hopes in the 75th minute – before former City ace Angelino was red carded for a bad tackle on the Portuguese, with Gabriel Jesus adding a late sixth from close range.
