Manchester City got our Champions League campaign off to a dream start in Seville.

A brace from Erling Haaland, plus further strikes from Phil Foden and Ruben Dias, ensured we claimed all three points at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium.

It means City sit top of Group G ahead of next week’s showdown with Borussia Dortmund at the Etihad Stadium.

Below, you can find some of the key stats from an impressive victory in southern Spain.

European dream

It was another memorable night for Erling Haaland, who became the first player in City’s history to score on his Premier League and Champions League debut.

Indeed, he is only the fourth player in the competition’s history to score in his first appearance for three different clubs (RB Salzburg, Borussia Dortmund and City), alongside Fernando Morientes, Javier Saviola and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

He has reached 25 goals in the competition quicker than any other player, with his 20 appearances ten fewer than nearest rivals Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Filippo Inzaghi.

The Norwegian’s killer instinct in front of goal is plain to see and is perfectly demonstrated by his heat map from last night’s victory.

While keen to get involved in the build-up, Haaland’s movement and anticipation means he’s almost always in the right position to finish things off inside the area.

Fantastic Mr. Foden

Our No. 47 was once again at the forefront of an excellent team display against Sevilla.

Getting on the scoresheet just before the hour was a deserved reward for a typically tireless display from the 22-year-old.

While not credited with the assist, the England international’s effort on goal led to Haaland’s second of the night, with Sevilla stopper Bono parrying the ball into the Norwegian’s path after Foden had worked the angle.

His overall impact on the match can be seen by his impressive stats above.

In control

Pep Guardiola’s men put on a typically professional display at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium and were essentially in control from the moment Haaland opened the scoring.

Enjoying 62% possession and registering 24 shots on the Sevilla goal, City were full value for our convincing victory in southern Spain.

At the other end, we limited the hosts to just a single shot on target, while they were also limited to just six efforts on Ederson’s goal.

Indeed, bar one spell of relative pressure at the beginning of the second half, Guardiola‘s side were in the driver’s seat in Seville.
