Minutes from the end, the forward squandered an unbeatable chance down the goal. On the next play, the French made it 3-1.
Beyond the goals, the controversies and the exciting moments that the game gave away, the unforgettable image of the duel that Lyon He beat Manchester City 3-1, for the quarterfinals of the Champions League, will undoubtedly be the one that left Raheem Sterling almost towards the end of the meeting.
At 86 minutes, with the French still leading by just one gap, the English striker had an unbeatable opportunity to shout the tie, probably the easiest he had in his entire career. Yet he wasted it in an incredible way.
After a good individual maneuver entering the rival area from the right, Gabriel Jesus took a low center that crossed the entire small area of Lyon and found Sterling alone, who only had to push it, but defined over the crossbar.
To make the situation worse for City, immediately on the next play Moussa Dembele scored the third and finished the story in Lisbon.
