Manchester City were forced to play without two of its key Goalkeepers during a Champions League match against Atalanta on Wednesday, 6th November 2019.
Man City’s goalkeeper Ederson suffered a muscle problem at half-time and was replaced by Claudio Bravo, who was later sent off during the last ten minutes of the second half.
Claudio Bravo was booked after a careless challenge on Atalanta’s Josip Illicic forcing Man City to play with only ten-men.
However, Man City did not leave their goal free after Claudio bravo was sent off as their right back, Kyle Walker took charge as the goalkeeper.
The match ended with a draw of 1-1 with City scoring their goal in the first half while Atalanta scored their goal just four minutes after the break.
City’s Raheem Sterling found the back of the net within the opening seven minutes of the match but his goal was cancelled out when Atalanta’s Mario Passaic netted in a perfect header minutes into the second half.
Man City had the best chance to bag the second goal in the first half but Gabriel Jesus was not lucky enough to score from the penalty spot.
Man City’s draw at San Siro means they still sit at the top of their group C with ten points after four matches while Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Zagreb tie at second place with five points each and Atalanta trailing at the bottom with only one point.
Other champions League matches that were played on Wednesday also had some drama, with some teams booking an early spot to the next round of the competition.
