City EDS 3-5 Club Brugge U19s: UEFA Youth League highlights

The best of the action from an eight-goal thriller at the Academy Stadium...

Manchester City’s Elite Development Squad suffered our first UEFA Youth League defeat of the season, edged out in dramatic circumstances in a 5-3 reverse against Club Brugge.

A James McAtee hat-trick had helped Brian Barry-Murphy's young charges into a 3-1 lead with around 25 minutes to play, but a stunning late comeback saw the visitors claim all three points in a pulsating, end-to-end encounter.


Cisse Sandra had twice reduced the deficit before Arne Engels grabbed an equaliser from the penalty spot.

And despite City's best efforts, Lynnt Audoor put the visitors ahead as stoppage time approached.

With Brian Barry-Murphy's men committing bodies forward in search of the leveller, Mathis Servais completed the scoring following a swift counter at the death.
