Erling Haaland is again the mainstay of ManCity’s front line in this duel. He was accompanied by two wing forwards, Jack Grealish on the left and Phil Foden on the right.
The result is quite good. Supported by Rodri, Bernardo Silva, and Kevin de Bruyne in the midfield position, The Citizen controlled the game. They even had a quick lead when the game had only been running for one minute.
Grealish was able to register his name on the scoreboard through a left-footed kick that Wolves goalkeeper Jose Sa couldn’t stop. This was inseparable from the mature bait that was released by De Bruyne in this match.
Winning one goal makes ManCity increasingly dominant. As a result, they were able to double the advantage to 2-0. This time, Haaland again showed his spurs. He managed to dribble into the Wolves defense and ended with a hard kick that directly hit Sa’s goal.
Both teams tried to change things in the remaining time of the first half. However, until halftime the score did not change. The hosts Wolves must be two goals behind from the visitors.
After halftime, Bruno Lage made a slight change in strategy. They dared to take the initiative to attack. Some dangerous threats began to be created by Daniel Podence and his colleagues.
ManCity actually got a dangerous opportunity when the game had only been running for 66 minutes. Haaland launched a hard kick that was within Sa’s reach. Foden has hit a wild ball. Unfortunately, his kick still couldn’t add to the visitors’ goals.
Two minutes later, ManCity could widen the advantage. Haaland’s cooperation, De Bruyne on the left side of the Wolves defense, ended with De Bruyne’s mature pass into the penalty box. Foden, who came, immediately cheated on the ball until the Wolves goal shook again.
Wolves’ momentum to rise began to dissipate. Practically the flow of the ball in midfield was controlled by Pep Guardiola’s team until the game entered the 87th minute.
