On This Day: Deyna's City bow, Aguero treble stuns Bayern

Events, games and moments on this day in our history....

November 25

1978: Right-back Kenny Clements broke his leg in a clash with Kevin Beattie during a home league game with Ipswich Town at Maine Road.

With just 20 minutes on the clock, City reacted badly and went on to lose 2-1 in front of 38,026 fans. Poland World Cup star Kaziu Deyna also made his long-awaited debut in the game that the visitors eventually won 2-1.

2014: Sergio Aguero hit a stunning hat-trick - including two goals in the last five minutes – to earn City a dramatic 3-2 Champions League win over Bayern Munich to keep our hopes of reaching the last 16 alive.


Bayern had to play with 10 men for 70 minutes after Mehdi Benatia was sent off for a foul on Aguero that saw the Argentine put us ahead from the penalty spot.

But the Germans turned the game on its head before half-time through Xabi Alonso's free-kick and a Robert Lewandowski header.

However, in a stirring finish Aguero struck twice to inspire a magnificent turnaround.

First the striker pounced on Alonso's uncharacteristically wayward pass to run clear and beat Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer, then he took advantage of more sloppiness from Jerome Boateng for the last-minute winner and send the Etihad into raptures.

2018: City eased our way past a dogged Yeovil Town side to secure a 4-0 win in the West country and so keep up the pressure on FA Women’s Super League leaders Arsenal.


Nikita Parris and Caroline Weir put City two goals up at half-time as Nick Cushing’s side dominated the opening 45 minutes.

Ann-Marie Heatherson hit the bar with a header and Olivia Fergusson went close as Yeovil started the second half well.

But Jill Scott hit the Yeovil bar before late goals from Steph Houghton and Claire Emslie sealed City's win.
