Manchester City 4-2 Viktoria Plzen – Highlights
Substitute Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko kept Manchester City’s hopes of topping Champions League Group D alive by securing a 4-2 win over Viktoria Plzen.
With a place in the last 16 already secured, City were below par at the Etihad Stadium and were twice pegged back by the Czech minnows.
Sergio Aguero and Samir Nasri both put Manuel Pellegrini’s men ahead but Tomas Horava and Stanislav Tecl responded, before Negredo and Dzeko finally clinched victory in the last 12 minutes.
Pellegrini had made seven changes for the match – including restoring England goalkeeper Joe Hart – but it needed the late introduction of Negredo to finally tilt the game their way.
