Jose Valladolid Stadium did not have good memories for Guardiola – his team was surprisingly knocked out of the competition by Leon here in August 2020.

It was one of the biggest disappointments of his six years in charge – yet he will cherish his team’s super show.

Sporting won seven European home matches last night.

Although they lost to Ajax here, they beat Besiktas and Borussia Dortmund in front of their own fans.

He made sure he only qualified for the last 16 for the second time – although on previous occasions he had beaten Bayern Munich 13 on two legs.

They will worry that this number could be at the top when they travel the alliance for the other leg of a dead rubber in three weeks.

Guardiola said before the game that his former Benfica players – Joao Cancello, Robin Dias, Bernardo and Anderson – were in the pre-match team talk.

And it clearly took visitors into the right frame of mind because they were only seven minutes ahead.

Bernardo played in Foden whose shot survived well. The rebound fell on Kevin de Bruyne, who pushed Riaz Mehriz back to tap the house – but the flag went up immediately.

After the VAR check that seemed permanent, KdB was considered partially sidelined and the city had a great start.

How many runs has Algeria scored – it has now scored in eight of its last nine club matches.

And in this competition which has 10 goals in its last 11 games.

City could have doubled their lead as they reopened Sporting and temporarily returned Sterling to right back John Stones.

The England defender’s header clipped former Liverpool defender Sebastian Coates and bounced a painful bounce.

But the traveling city fans did not have to wait long as the home defense did not clear a corner of Mehriz.

It fell well for Bernardo, but the half-angle angle that penetrated the bottom of the bar was just as lovely as you’ll see.

Any way to silence the Bo Boys – some of them even clapped. It was so good.

Rodrًguez almost gave Pedro Goncalves a way back in a tie with a wandering pass, but Emery Laport returned to get him out with difficulty.

The home side seemed to be in danger of advancing, but City opened the scoring on their own at half-time and reached the third goal in half an hour.

Mehriz turned and turned right before making a cross slide, which the helpless Coates did not deal with.

It fell to Foden, who marked his historic game with a simple home goal.

There was still another time before the break as Cancello sent Sterling to the left.

He passed to Bernardo, whose shot bounced off Goncalo Anasio before defeating Antonio Adan.

For Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother Dolores – looking at her son’s old club for the stands – it must have been very difficult to sit in.

Even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of the average person.

Less than five minutes after the resumption, Bernardo thought he had completed a special hat-trick as his header from Ed Bruin’s cross outscored Aden.

But another VAR check this time was against City in which the former Monaco man was completely off side.

Although he did not knock the visitors to their feet.

Hours later, Sterling landed the ball on his right foot and spun the beauty into the corner above the edge of the box.

He scored Bernardo’s first goal of the night – and put him in the top 10 of City Goal scorers with 127.

He also has 24 goals in the competition – Wayne Rooney is now the only English player to have scored more goals.
