Man City made a good start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 31st minute when Julian Alvarez scored with an excellent strike. Pep Guardiola‘s men went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Man City sat on their lead well in the second half and managed to earn a narrow 1-0 victory in front of their home fans.
