UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE : Aguero Breaks Man City Record As They Qualify For Knock Out Stage



Manchester City continued their sensational form as they saw off Napoli 4-2 in Italy to make it four wins from four in Group F and advance to the knockout phase for the fifth season running.

Lorenzo Insigne put the Serie A leaders in front, but Nicolas Otamendi headed City level and his fellow centre-back John Stones then scored with a header that went in off the underside of the bar.

A Jorginho penalty restored parity again, but Sergio Aguero made it 3-2 and Raheem Sterling completed the scoring.

Aguero’s strike allowed him to become City’s all-time leading scorer on 178 goals, passing the old mark of 177 set by Eric Brook in the 1930s.

“What he has achieved has made him a legend, he’s gone down in history, so I would tell him to enjoy,” said City coach Pep Guardiola of Aguero, the former son-in-law of Argentina and Napoli great Diego Maradona.

Shakhtar Donetsk need just a draw in Naples in three weeks to go through too after beating Feyenoord 3-1.

Nicolai Jorgensen headed the Dutch champions into the lead in Kharkiv only for Facundo Ferreyra to equalise.

Marlos, the Brazil-born Ukraine international, then scored twice to secure the victory as Feyenoord are eliminated.
