Szoboszlai scores in an empty net

Manchester City are currently playing German club, RB Leipzig, in the final group match of their UEFA Champions League clash and it is a closed-door fixture at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig. Playing their first match under new manager Achim Beierlorzer, who has taken over the sacked Jesse Marsch, they have started off in great style against the Premier League giants.

Leipzig lead 1-0 at the break courtesy of a goal from their Hungarian forward, Szoboszlai scored into an empty net to take a shock lead for his side at the halftime break. The goal came in the 24th minute of the match from direct route 1 football as the Leipzig skipper sent in a goal kick into the centre circle.

The second ball fell for Kevin Laimer, who played in a delightful through ball for Dominic Szoboszlai, who had made a darting run down the left flank, freeing himself from the Manchester City defenders.

He was through on goal, with only Zach Steffen to beat and he did that with perfect poise, rounding off the Manchester City keeper to slot the ball into an empty net, getting the opening goal of the match. The German side are currently leading the match courtesy of that goal and some brilliant saves from their skipper in goal Peter Gulacsi.
