Manchester City began to dominate early, and Foden received the ball from a free kick executed by De Bruyne, to shoot from a narrow-angle, but goalkeeper Keylor Navas did not find it difficult to catch the ball in the second minute.

Grealish got a pass from Foden and set up the opportunity to shoot, but his ball bounced off defender Worrall in the eighth minute.

Nottingham responded in the tenth minute, when Johnson launched a counterattack, getting rid of Grealish, but he shot from a difficult position in defense.

The referee awarded a free kick in favor of City in the 16th minute, which De Bruyne executed in the human wall, and the player himself created enough space for a shot, which went away from the home team’s goal in the 26th minute.

City missed a dangerous opportunity to score in the 34th minute when Rodri reached a ball lifted from De Bruyne, but his header did not find the goal, despite the player’s uncontrolled shot.

Silva’s goal

Manchester City managed to open the scoring in the 41st minute when Grealish passed the ball to Silva, who hit the outside foot directly from outside the penalty area, and the ball settled into the net despite Navas’ attempt to clear it.

Foden was alone in Nottingham’s goal in the 48th minute, but he preferred to pass to Halland instead of shooting at the goal, so he stumbled at the moment of passing, and defender Felipe cut the ball.

And goalkeeper Navas saved Nottingham’s goal from a dangerous opportunity in the 52nd minute, when he blocked Laporte’s header, who returned to follow up on the rebound, but the goalkeeper picked it up before it crossed the goal line.

Nafis returned to control De Bruyne’s easy shot, following a pass from Grealish in the 56th minute, and the player himself fired a shot that passed by the far post in the 62nd minute.

Haaland missed an easy opportunity in the 68th minute when Navas blocked Foden’s shot, and the ball rebounded to the Norwegian striker, who hit the crossbar in the first attempt, before toppling the ball towards the stands in the second.

Gundogan executed a free kick over the human wall, but Navas excelled in pushing it away in the 72nd minute, then De Bruyne hit the stands after a pass from Grealish in the 83rd minute.

Killer target

Nottingham finally managed to equalize the score in the 84th minute, when Johnson dribbled more than one player, before passing to Gibbs White, who, in turn, passed a cross creeping towards the far post, followed by New Zealand substitute Chris Wood into the net.
