Rich City boys get Bayern schooling

sports Updated: Sep 29, 2011 02:20 IST

Bayern Munich forward Mario Gomez struck twice in the first half to hand his team a 2-0 win over Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday and extend their winning streak to 10 games in all competitions.

To add insult to injury for City manager Roberto Mancini, Argentine striker Carlos Tevez refused to come on as a second-half substitute and looks set to never play for the club again.

Bundesliga top scorer Gomez, who only returned at the weekend from a groin injury, snatched a 38th minute lead when he slid in after City keeper Joe Hart had saved efforts from Franck Ribery and Thomas Mueller.

He added another in first-half stoppage time as he again tapped in from close range.

City, in only their second ever game in the competition having drawn 1-1 with Napoli in their opener, failed to leave their mark with another lacklustre performance and have not won any of their last five European away games.
