Manchester City extinguished three comeback attempts from RB Leipzig on Wednesday in a madcap 6-3 victory for the English champions.

And Joao Cancelo, one of the standout players for Pep Guardiola's side, scored the best goal of the evening with a vicious smash from distance.

Christopher Nkunku starred for the visitors with Leipzig's first Champions League hat-trick, becoming just the third player after Lionel Messi and Jamie Vardy to bag a treble against Guardiola's Manchester City.

City's goals came courtesy of Nathan Ake, a disastrous Nordi Mukiele own goal, Riyad Mahrez, Jack Grealish, Cancelo, and Gabriel Jesus.

Paris Saint-Germain started Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe in the other Group A match but drew 1-1 at Club Brugge.
