Video: Man City punished on the break as Maxwel Cornet fires Lyon into the lead

In the 23rd minute of Manchester City’s Champions League quarter-final tie against Lyon, the Citizens found themselves in danger after a lovely ball was played over the top of their high line.

Karl Toko Ekambi ran onto the pass and before being tackled by Eric Garcia, but the ball spilled out and into the path of Maxwel Cornet.

The forward punished sweeper-keeper Ederson for being out of his goal as he tucked the ball into the back of the net with a tidy first-time finish from just outside the box.
