Sergio Aguero goal vs Tottenham: The Manchester City striker scored a stunning goal to give Guardiola’s side a 4-3 lead in the tie.
The game kicked off dramatically as five goals were scored inside the first 21 minutes, as Raheem Sterling, Heung-Min Son and Bernardo Silva were on the scoresheet in the game.
However, one the dust was settled and the game proceeded, Manchester City took hold of most of the ball possession, and were finally rewarded in the second half.
A series of relentless attacks led to Sergio Aguero scoring a stunning goal to push City into the lead in the tie for the first time.
Take a look:
Sergio Aguero goal vs Tottenham:
The Argentine star hit a thunderous strike to beat Hugo Lloris, after Kevin De Bruyne’s brilliant piece of dribbling in the move.
The Tottenham goalkeeper could do little to save the shot, as the visiting side now risks going out of the Champions League.
Earlier, Tottenham faced another setback as Heung-Min Son was given a yellow card for a foul on De Bruyne, and he is now suspended for the next game. Should Spurs qualify for the next round, Tottenham could be without both, Son and Harry Kane, who is out with injury.

Pep Guardiola was criticised for his defensive approach in the first leg, but the performance in the second leg by Manchester City is anything but negative so far.
How Twitter reacted..
Fifth time Sergio Aguero has scored 30+ goals in a season for Manchester City. No one else has done it more than once.

30 goals for Aguero now. Superb pass from Gundogan to De Bruyne. City just so much better with this De Bruyne in it. Superb midfielder

This #Aguero goal feels like the one he scored against QPR in 2012. 😉
