Cancelo sparks Metropolis’s 2-Zero win

Budapest, February 25

Versatile, tactically astute and boasting the creativity of a midfield playmaker, Joao Cancelo is a one-of-a-kind defender who is proving to be Manchester’s City unlikely secret weapon this season.

Borussia Monchengladbach certainly couldn’t handle the Portugal international in the Champions League.

Two pinpoint and almost-identical crosses from Cancelo — City’s roving fullback — set up goals for Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus in a 2-0 win for the Premier League leaders in a one-sided first leg in the last-16.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid struggled to break down 10-man Atalanta before Ferland Mendy netted an 86th-minute winner. — AP
