David Silva struck a priceless 86th minute goal to secure a vital 2-1 Champions League win for Manchester City in Hoffenheim.


After having fought back from conceding a shock first minute goal to the hosts through Sergio Aguero’s strike, the Blues dominated possession and chances but found the Bundesliga hosts a tough side to break down.


But with time running out, El Mago delivered a moment of magic to secure a vital three points and get our European campaign up and running.
