Man City ace Gabriel Jesus matches goals haul of 2 Brazilian legends

Manchester City ace Gabriel Jesus has matched the feat of two Brazilian icons with his goal against Real Madrid on Friday night.

Gabriel struck in the 2-1 win which sent City into the quarterfinal this week against Lyon in Lisbon.

The goal was his 14th in just 22 Champions League games which equaled the hauls of two Brazilian legends - Ronaldo Nazario and Adriano Leite.

However, Gabriel's numbers have even more merit, since the City ace needed five games less than the 'Emperor' and 18 less than 'O Fenómeno' to reach 14 goals in the Champions League.

City meet Lyon for a place in the semifinals on Friday night.
