Jesus Return To Man City 3-Nill Victory

Posted by

As Manchester City defeated Olympiakos to retain their 100 percent record in Champions League Group C, Gabriel Jesus marked his return from injury with a fine finish. City had taken an early lead through the calm finish of Ferran Torres, but made hard work of what should have been a straightforward night against the Greek champions.

They needed Jesus, who hadn’t played because of a knee injury since September 21, to come off the bench and shoot their second with nine minutes left, blasting from a narrow angle into the roof of the net.

Next what? Liverpool, followed by Tottenham. When they fly to Greece to face Olympiakos again on Wednesday, 25 November (20:00 GMT kick-off), City have a three-week wait before their next Champions League match.
