Two Edin Dzeko and Yayo Toure goals saw Manchester City through into the next stage of the Europa League, after drawing the first league 0 – 0.
An injury hit Manchester City rose to the challenge and played good football in parts, with Edin Dzeko being the star of the show, infact he could have scored a hat-trick, but fluffed a great opportunity.
The first goal of the evening for Dzeko, was a beautiful low effort after Nikolaos Lazaridis presented him a very easy chance, quite a calamity to be honest.
The second goal, featured lovely build up play from livewire David Silva and the finish was emphatic. A Carlos Tevez pass, then cutting inside Lazaridis and then Michel, smashed into the same corner as the first goal.
Edin had then an opportunity to score a third, but a good save from Sifakis’s outstretched arm, made sure he didn’ t get the chance for his first Man City hat-trick. just before the interval.
Then our man Super Mario Balotelli had a glorious chance, but the shot crashed the post.
All in all it was a good result for Manchester City.
