Scoreline Summary

Atalanta 1-1 Manchester City

(Pasalic 49’ – Sterling 7’)

Brief Report

Raheem scored his 10th goal in his last 11 appearances in the UEFA Champions League as Manchester City drew 1-1 away to Atalanta in a dramatic contest on Wednesday night.

After early pressure from Atalanta, Raheem’s goal put his side in the ascendancy. Having initially intercepted a pass from the back, Raheem bursted into the box before latching onto a neat flick from Gabriel Jesus as he finished calmly in the bottom corner.

However, a spirited second-half comeback from the hosts caused all kinds of trouble for City. Mario Pasalic’s equaliser as well as a red card to Claudio Bravo meant that right-back Kyle Walker had to play the final 10 minutes in goal after starting goalkeeper Ederson was replaced injured at half-time.

Thankfully for the English champions, the referee eventually blew his whistle for full-time and after four matchdays in Europe’s elite competition this season, Raheem has an impressive five goals to his tally.

What Does This Mean?

Despite dropping points, City remain top of Group C, three points clear ahead of Dinamo Zagreb as their game with Shakhtar Donetsk finished all square at 3-3.

What’s Next?

Raheem now faces fellow Colossal talent Alex and his in-form Liverpool side in the top of the Premier League table clash with kick-off on Sunday, 4:30pm at the Etihad.
