Riyad Mahrez was in action from start to finish as Manchester City defeated Dinamo Zagreb 4-1 in Wednesday’s Champions League fixture.
Although the Citizens had already secured a place in the Round of 16, Pep Guardiola’s men strolled past the Croatians after surviving an early scare.
Gabriel Jesus was the hero as his hat-trick clinched maximum points at Stadion Maksimir – rendering Dani Olmo’s opener a mere consolation.
Mahrez was making his eighth appearance for the Etihad Stadium giants in the competition and marked the occasion with the assist for Jesus’s first strike.
With that, he has now been directly involved in 10 goals in nine Champions League starts for Manchester City.
Thanks to the away triumph, Guardiola’s side zoomed into the next round as Group C winners with 14 points from six games.
The former Leicester City man is expected to be on parade as City continue to revive their Premier League title bid with a visit to Arsenal on the weekend.
