The Portuguese full-back scored Joao Cancelo A goal in the thirtieth minute, then Mahrez scored two goals; The first was a penalty kick in the 43rd minute and the other in the 84th minute.

Then Kyle Walker scored in the 53rd minute, while young substitute Cole Palmer added the fifth goal for Manchester City.

On the other hand, Club Brugge scored its only goal during the match in the 81st minute.

City regained its balance after losing to Paris Saint-Germain The Frenchman is in the second round, and is waiting for the latter to stumble against his German guest, Leipzig, later to stay in the leadership.

Last season’s runner-up raised his score to six points, two points ahead of Saint-Germain and Brugge, while bottom Leipzig is still looking for its first points.

The English champions are still looking for their first title in their history in the continental competition, and were close to the corner, last season, when they reached the final for the first time before falling to his compatriot Chelsea with a clean goal.

Guardiola made four changes to the squad that started against Burnley (2-0) in the local league, Saturday, and put Jack Grealish instead of Raheem Sterling, along with Mahrez and Phil Foden.

In the meantime, Guardiola kept the same midfield led by the Belgian Kevin De Bruyne, who scored the first hat-trick in his professional career against Club Brugge in particular, and pushed the Portuguese Robin Diach and Kyle Walker in the defense and returned the main Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson.

City controlled almost absolute control of the match and canceled two early goals for offside, the first for Grealish (11) and another for Spaniard Rodri (13).
