Gabriel Jesus scores as Man City beat Olympiacos 3-0

Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus scored on his return from injury as Manchester City maintained a perfect start to their Uefa Champions League campaign with a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Olympiacos at the Etihad Stadium.

Ferran Torres scored in his fourth consecutive game in the competition to give Pep Guardiola’s side the lead after just 12 minutes, but the contest did not evolve into the formality City’s fast start had promised.

Former France international Mathieu Valbuena missed a glorious chance to level 10 minutes into the second half before Gabriel Jesus came off the bench to double Manchester City’s lead with an unstoppable finish from a tight angle.

City added a third as substitute Joao Cancelo’s speculative drive surprised Jose Sa to cap a routine win that preserves their 100 percent record from three group stage matches.

Olympiacos remain third in the group while FC Porto are three points behind City in second place after winning 3-0 against Marseille on Tuesday.
