Manchester City 7 Schalke 0 (10-2 agg): Aguero & Sane show no mercy

Published

Manchester City cruised into the Champions League quarter-finals as Sergio Aguero’s brace sparked a 7-0 home thumping of Schalke and a crushing 10-2 aggregate victory.

Pep Guardiola’s men sat firmly in the driving seat after a come-from-behind 3-2 success in Gelsenkirchen last month and they were never in danger of letting the lead slip against a passive opponent in this last-16 tie.

Aguero struck twice and Leroy Sane once in the space of seven first-half minutes before Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus humiliated the visitors after half-time.

Schalke, who are in danger of Bundesliga relegation, seemed resigned to their fate from the outset as they sat deep and invited a second-leg defeat that casts a doubt over Domenico Tedesco’s future.
