City 2-0 Girona: Extended highlights

Watch the best of the action from City’s friendly meeting with Girona at the Academy Stadium.

In what was our first match since the World Cup hiatus, we continued to prepare for the return of domestic action with a 2-0 win over the Spanish outfit.

Kevin De Bruyne marked his return from Qatar with the opener in the fifth minute, when he intercepted Paulo Gazzaniga’s pass out to slot past the Argentine ‘keeper.

The 31-year-old then turned provider and reignited his partnership with Erling Haaland that proved so efficient during the first half of the season, by squaring the ball for the Norwegian to tap home.


In what was an evenly contested second half, a backline mainly made of City youngsters held strong to maintain a clean sheet.

The success was the ideal way to sharpen up before our Carabao Cup fourth round clash with Liverpool at home on Thursday 22 December.
