Goals from Aguero and Silva were enough to get on track as they beat by 1-2.

Manchester City recovered from an abysmal start to end a run of four consecutive defeats with a 2-1 victory at Hoffenheim.

Pep Guardiola’s side, who suffered a 2-1 loss at home to Lyon in their Group F opener, fell behind inside 44 seconds on Tuesday.

But the Premier League champions bounced back to end the longest losing streak of an English side in the competition’s history.

City, who were beaten in their last-16 second-leg clash with Basel before losing twice to Liverpool in the quarter-finals last season, quickly levelled through Sergio Aguero.

And the turnaround was completed late on courtesy of David Silva’s opportunistic strike just three minutes from time.

In the first meeting between the sides, the Bundesliga outfit wasted no time in forging ahead, Ishak Belfodil coolly converting following Kerem Demirbay’s throughball.

But that stung the visitors into life and when Silva deftly picked out Leroy Sane, the former Schalke star squared for Aguero – who overcame a foot injury to retain his place – to tap home.

Raheem Sterling was denied by Oliver Baumann at the end of a strong run and Aguero volleyed over on the stretch after excellent trickery from Sane, with City piling on the pressure.

Baumann produced a stunning one-handed stop to thwart Aguero again before the break, but the hosts regained a foothold in the second half.

For the opening 25 minutes, Julian Nagelsmann’s side contained City without managing to create much for themselves.

Sane had a strong shout for a penalty waved away when he took a tumble in the box after Baumann rushed out to meet him.

But City finally got the winner after Stefan Posch was caught dallying inside the area, allowing Silva to find the bottom-right corner with typical assuredness.
