Erling Haaland brushed off injury concerns to secure Manchester City’s place in the Champions League last 16 as he scored twice in a 3-0 win over Young Boys at the Etihad.

Haaland recovered after twisting his ankle in Saturday’s 6-1 thrashing of Bournemouth in the Premier League and opened the scoring for last season’s treble winners from the penalty spot after 23 minutes.

Phil Foden doubled their lead in first-half stoppage time after a graceful run before Haaland struck from 25 yards six minutes into the second period to seal City’s fourth victory from four in their Champions League defence.
