Even though Man City has complete control of the game, it is quite disappointing that they were unable to prevail over Brentford and win the match. In contrast, Brentford was only in possession of the ball 25% of the time during the match, while Manchester City held it for 75% of the time. Man City had 619 successful passes, an accuracy rate of 85%, and awarded 10 corners. Only 214 of Brentford’s passes were completed in this match, had a pass accuracy of 57%, and the team only had two corners in this match. In every way, Man City was superior to Brentford; nonetheless, this did not help Man City win the match because Brentford had more goals than Man City did. At the conclusion of the match, the only thing that matters is who scored more goals, and since Brentford scored more goals than Man City, they were the ones to emerge victorious.
There were a total of 3 goals scored today, with two of those goals being scored by Brentford and one of those goals being scored by Man City. There were a total of two goals scored in the first half of the match, one of which was scored by Man City and the other of which was scored by Brentford. Ivan Toney of Brentford scored the game’s opening goal at 16 minutes of the match. Toney’s head was responsible for an incredible goal, and it was one of the highlights of the game. Phil Foden scored the game’s second and their first goal for Manchester City at the 46-minute mark of the extra time that was played after the initial 45 minutes had been played. The score was tied at 1-1 at the halftime break in the first half, which was played to a close.
Both teams made strong efforts to score during the second half of the match, but despite their efforts, neither team was able to find the back of the net. Manchester City, in particular, was desperate for a victory, but they were unable to do it in the second half. The first 90 minutes of the game concluded with a score of 1-1, but when extra time was played, nobody had any idea that Brentford would surprise Man City in the 98 minutes of the game. Ivan Toneyy had the opportunity, and he capitalized by scoring his second goal, which proved to be the game-winning goal. The final score of the match was 2-1, which was a victory for the Brentford team.
Ivan Tony was informed on Thursday that he would not be part of England’s team that would compete in the World Cup. The following Saturday, he demonstrated to the world that he is still capable of helping his team win a game against a formidable opponent. Ivan Toney’s amazing performance and the two goals he scored for his team on Saturday were the keys to Brentford’s victory over Man City, one of the most powerful clubs in the premier league.
