De Bruyne in all the good shots Kevin de Bruyne shone this Tuesday evening in Marseille in this match of the 2nd day of the Champions League group stage (0-3). The Manchester City playmaker, who returned to West Ham last Saturday (1-1), was in good shape. The Mancunian captain proved it by offering two assists on the lawn of a Velodrome behind closed doors. On a mistake by Rongier, the midfielder recovered a ball in the box and sent a perfect cross to Torres for the opener (18th). The Belgian international did it again late in the game with another superb cross in Sterling for City's third goal (81st). Enough to make him the man of the match.

  MATCHDAY: Barca plays Real Madrid; Man United hosts Chelsea A look at what’s happening around European soccer on Saturday: SPAIN Barcelona and Real Madrid meet in the season’s first clásico after both lost in the league last weekend. At least Barcelona recovered to win in the Champions League in midweek but Madrid was beaten again. Sergio Ramos is fit to play after he missed Madrid’s loss to Shakhtar Donetsk due to a knee injury that kept him out of the defeat to Cádiz last weekend. Lionel Messi will be looking to avoid going a sixth match against Madrid without scoring, having last netted in May 2018 — a record 26th goal for any player in clásicos.

Pep Guardiola: You can't play for just 45 minutes at this level .

City does the job Without being dazzling, Guardiola's Manchester City quietly controlled the whole match. Never in danger, City had full control with 64% possession. In the first half, the Citizens cornered the Marseillais in their camp, leaving very few opportunities for their opponent. After the break, they slowed down a bit before coming off very strong at the end of the match with 2 goals in the last quarter hour from Gundogan (76th) and Sterling (81st). All in all, City have shown their superiority and why they are a serious contender for the title. The Spanish coach's men have two wins in two C1 matches and are at the top of their group.

Flops

An invisible OM attacking 2 shots. Here is the number of strikes the Olympians have in this game. It is certainly one of the lowest numbers of attempts in the Champions League. The Marseille attack was transparent. Nothing to eat if it wasn't Radonjic's grazing shot well captured by Ederson (41 ') or Thauvin's post (54'). Frustrating. The step was too high against Man City . In short, that makes 2 defeats for OM who still have not found the net in this C1.

Shattered Man City won't recover from Guardiola's worst league start without resting star men

  Shattered Man City won't recover from Guardiola's worst league start without resting star men The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has seen his side take just eight points from their first five games after an insipid 1-1 draw at West HamSaturday's 1-1 draw with West Ham means the Catalan's side have taken just eight points from their opening five fixtures and, unusually for a Guardiola side, they don't yet have a positive goal difference.

While Manchester City went on to secure a domestic treble last season, the injuries that troubled star man Kevin De Bruyne remained a worry. But with solid foundations at the back, Everton's case for gatecrashing the top six appears to be getting stronger by the week.

Manchester City produce a scintillating display to overwhelm Stoke and open up a two-point lead at the top of the Premier League. De Bruyne told BBC Sport: "We play in a flow at the moment - we are playing well. Not just me. "It looks wonderful to see the goals - it's not an individual action.

Marseille defensive mistakes that cost a lot Olympique de Marseille suffered a lot throughout the game. The Villas-Boas players did not see the light of day in the first half. Cornered in their camp, the Phocéens took the water and conceded the opener after a mistake by Rongier. The midfielder missed his pass in the box. Marseille, suffocated, made other defensive mistakes and ended up sinking late in the game.

An OM not at the level The Marseillais showed their limits and saw what the true level of the Champions League was. Hard return to reality. The 3-5-2 were not convincing and OM were never able to upset Manchester City. It will be difficult for this team to hope for something in C1 if their level does not improve. Marseille, currently last in its group with 0 points in 2 games, has lost its last 11 matches in the Champions League. Only Anderlecht (12) have lost more games in a row in the history of the competition. OM will be keen not to reproduce the 0 points during their previous participation in C1 7 years ago.

OM: Ayew denies being contacted .
Swansea City left-winger André Ayew has claimed he was not approached by Olympique Marseille this summer. Much appreciated by Marseille fans, the Ghanaian international did not discuss with the managers of Marseille during the last transfer market. In an interview with beIN Sports, André Ayew denied the rumors about him. “A return to Olympique de Marseille? No, no, there were no talks at all, said left-winger. There were other clubs, but not my club, not the house.
