Manchester City eliminated Dinamo Zagreb in a Champions League match with nothing at stake for the 'sky blues'. Despite a great goal by Dani Olmo, the english came back thanks to Gabriel Jesus, who scored a hat-trick, and Phil Foden
The Champions League expected some news this week, and in the group of the Manchester City there was not hardly surprises. The 'sky blues', that did not have at all at stake because already they knew with the first place and the note sealed for eighth of final, did not have mercy of the Dinamo of Zagreb, that dreamed with the classification during some minutes before falling goleado home by an opponent plagado of rotations.
And it results curious to say rotations, because in the Stadium Maksimir, the English played with David Silva, Riyad Mahrez or Rodri Hernández. Pep Guardiola has to his disposal a staff of luxury, that although it is having some difficulties to litigate by the Premier League, could centre in the longed for European conquest. This Wednesday ran over to a rival that did not lose him the face to the party and even arrived to take advantage.
The pupilos of Nenad Bjelica jumped to the lawn bravely, and fruit of his effort arrived a 1-0 that did to burst to the terracing. The visitors faced the appointment like a formality and this noticed by moments in his football, that only woke up after a golazo of Dani Elm. The Catalan found a hole in the defence 'citizen', took advantage of the centre of Damian Kadzior and without leaving it fall, empaló the leather to bend the hands of Claudio Bravo.
When seeing by behind in the marker went up a course the British champion, that empató in a played controversial. One of the local footballers was tended in the floor, and neither threw the balloon was neither the referee considered that it was necessary to stop the played to demand assistances. The protests flooded the coliseo Croatian and also the field, but the action did not brake and Gabriel Jesus defined with the testa a sending of Mahrez.
To the City seated him well the equalised before the rest, and to the turn sentenced with a 'hat-trick' of the Brazilian. The ones of house tried to react, but his opponent showed inabordable and hardly left them show by his area. In hardly five minutes, the one of Sao Paulo certified an eslalon of a lot of carats after combining with Phil Foden and went back to remachar a centre, this time with the foot and to pass of Benjamin Mendy.
The clash went down of revolutions to measure that the chronometer approached the end, but the midfield player wanted to add to the party. In a played classical in the notebook of his trainer, the attack started by band and adentró pass to pass in the zone of punishment, where a triangulation was sufficient so that the one of Stockport only had to push. With acting, the mancunianos drowned his penalties.

The Atalanta accompanies to the City to eighth
In addition to the team of Guardiola, the Group C confirmed that the Atalanta also will be in eighth, after a night epic against the Shakhtar Donetsk. To the Ukrainians sufficed them with a tie to advance to the eliminatory, but saw goleados (0-3) by an opponent that, after losing in the three first days, classified with an equalised and two victories in the three last. It is the magic of the European competition.
