Marseille 0-3 Manchester City: Torres strikes again as Guardiola’s side cruise

Manchester City dominated from start to finish as they cruised to a 3-0 victory away at Marseille in Group C.
Ferran Torres scored his second Champions League goal for Manchester City as Pep Guardiola’s side eased to a 3-0 win over Marseille.

Playing in a central role in the absence of Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus, Torres – who had netted in the 3-1 win over Porto in City’s opening Group C outing – broke the deadlock when he was teed up by Kevin De Bruyne in the 18th minute.

City were well worthy of their lead, though Guardiola may be concerned that his team failed to turn their dominance of possession into clear-cut opportunities until Ilkay Gundogan settled the contest.
