Manchester City’s Samir Nasri claims that only Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo is better than his partner Sergio Aguero. Aguero scored a hatrick against Bayern Munich in Manchester City’s champions league encounter. The prolific Argentina striker scored twice in the last five minutes as City came from behind to beat the 10-man Germans 3-2 in dramatic fashion at the Etihad Stadium. Aguero has now scored 17 goals this season in 18 appearances, an emphatic return to form after being hampered by injuries in the second part of the last campaign.
“I don’t think I need to speak about his performance — the statistics speak for themselves. He is a great player on his day. He is unstoppable. Last night we needed him and he delivered.” said Nasri
“At the moment he is one of best players in the world. Apart from Cristiano Ronaldo, who is on another planet, he is up there with (Lionel) Messi and (Luis) Suarez.
“He has been unbelievable this year. He was last year as well, the only problem was his injury.
“This year he has been more fit and when he is one on one with the keeper, it doesn’t seem like he will miss the target. He always makes the difference and always delivers for us in difficult moments.”
After defeating 10 men Bayern Munich, Manchester City have perhaps opened a lifeline in Group E. Although Manchester City still amount five points and are on par with AS Roma and CSKA Moscow, the Sky Blues would be looking to capitalize this opportunity to maximum. City started the game on backfoot as Bayern dominated proceedings, but a Sergio Aguero penalty – following a Mehdi Benatia challenge which resulted in a red card, put the hosts ahead. However Bayern were quick to counter and a Xabi Alonso free kick goal followed by a Robert Lewandowski header, put the visitors 2-1. Manchester City made a dramatic comeback in the dying embers of the game as Sergio Aguero, scored a brace to put Manchester City ahead 3-2. Manchester City’s gaffer Manuel Pellegrini was all praise of the blistering Argentine.
Now Manchester City have to defeat AS Roma on the final match day of the group stages and even though their hopes would be tied to CSKA vs Bayern Munich, Manchester City would be looking to dish out a stellar performance once again.
