Man City thrash Burton 9-0 and that was just the first of two legs

Manchester City have won the first of two legs against Burton Albion this evening as six different goal scorers made up the 9-0 scoreline.

Kevin De Bruyne got the first and his only goal after just 5 minutes, heading low into the net.

The second didn’t come until the halfway through the opening half when Gabriel Jesus, who had a goal disallowed just before, headed a loose ball home.

Jesus got his second on the 33rd minute, hitting the post on the way in to make it 3-0.

Two minutes later, another player got on the score sheet as Oleksandr Zinchenko got his first for Man City with either a fluke or fine finish to make it 4-0, which remained the score until half time.

Gabriel Jesus completed his hat-trick shortly into the second half who hit home a powerful header.

The 63d minute saw substitute Phil Foden grab City’s sixth goal of the game, scoring with just his second touch.

Three minutes later, that man again Jesus got his fourth, tapping in from a low cross.

70th minute on the clock and City were 8-0 up. Kyle Walker side-footed home from inside the penalty area.

And finally the last goal came in six minutes before the 90th, Riyad Mahrez securing the 9-0 victory.

And that was just the first of two games City have to play against them, with the second leg on the 23rd of January at the Pirelli Stadium.

Majority of the Burton Albion supporters managed to make kick off but some were still stuck on the M6 as part of it was closed after a number of people were found in the back of a lorry stopped by police.

One Brewers fan stuck in it listened to the game on the radio and amusingly said ‘It’s a game of two halves’.
