Manchester City have set a Champions League knockout record for biggest first-half lead in an away match with a four-score outburst against Sporting CP on Tuesday.
Bernardo Silva found the net twice in the opening 45 minutes while Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden also hit the target. Pep Guardiola's defence, meanwhile, held Sporting scoreless to maintain a four-goal advantage entering half-time.
They went on to win 5-0.

Manchester City's Champions League record
Bernardo Silva's wonderful strike
Manchester City's second goal was particularly pleasing to watch, as Bernardo Silva hit a running volley into the net.
What has been said?
"It was a very good performance," said Bernardo Silva to BT Sport. "In the first half we were in that mood to win 4-0. We were a bit sloppy which gave them the opportunity to counter-attack but we were very clinical. You need some luck as well. We are very happy with the win. To win 5-0 away is a great result and it's a great performance.
"I am Portuguese and I'm from the other side of the city so it was special to score here in my hometown. It was nice to start the last 16 with a 5-0 win. It's always an extra motivation to come here to Lisbon in such an important game. There is still a job to do in Manchester. We cannot relax.
"It was a great goal and I'm happy to help the team. You have to keep going. 2-0 is better than 3-0. 4-0 is better than 3-0. You cannot relax. We try to do our best no matter what the score is."
