Three goals within ten second-half minutes handed Manchester City an easy 3-0 Champions League win over Czech title-holders Viktoria Plzen in their opening Group D fixture here.

Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko scored in the 48th minute with a low shot past helpless Plzen keeper Matus Kozacik after being set up by Sergio Aguero.

Five minutes later, Yaya Toure (left) sent a superb curling shot from outside the box into the top corner of Kozacik’s goal.

Another five minutes passed and Aguero, a constant threat for the injury-plagued Plzen defence, made it 3-0 with a low left-footed strike.

“It’s very important to start the Champions League winning away,” said City’s Chilean manager Manuel Pellegrini, who took charge before this season.AFP
