Son of Manchester United legend Andy Cole scores twice for City in 3-0 win

Manchester City Stand

Devante Cole netted twice against Plzen when their u19s faced Manchester City u19s in the UEFA Youth League match.

The 18-year-old striker has been one of the shining lights for Manchester City's youth side this season and notched up a couple more in their UEFA Youth League match against Plzen.

Devante Cole joined team-mate Marcos Lopes at the very top of the scoring statistics in the competition, as Manchester City look to be bearing fruits from their mega-investment of the club from grassroots level upwards. 

The match itself was a very well contested, dominant home win for City as the two early goals from Cole just about put the game to bed. The game went on with City controlling the possession and trying to break the Czech Republic side down, but perhaps didn't score as many as they would have wanted.

Former Real Madrid player Jose Angel Pozo netted the third and final goal as he also looked to be building on his growing reputation at the club.

Manchester City currently sit top of the UEFA Youth League group of death, but will face a very tough test if they're to qualify for the last 16. 

CSKA Moscow whilst 2nd face pointless Plzen in their final game, and barring any major upset should qualify comfortably. Manchester City will have to travel to Germany and beat Bayern Munich once again in what will be the deciding match, as anything but a win for Bayern is likely to see them dumped out the competition.

Manchester City should be confident going into the game since their last meeting was so comfortable. Marcos Lopes scored the hat-trick, along with goals from Glendon, Denayer and Cole to see City win the game six goals to nil.

The fact that Bayern have managed to bounce back from that result and put themselves back into contention would suggest they have no thoughts of throwing it away at the last minute. 

It will be definitely a game to keep an eye on.
