The Norwegian did another one after. A hat trick in an hour on the pitch.

Kompany’s return to the Etihad gave a friendly air to the preamble. 360 games with the sky blue, 62 with Guardiola as coach are figures to take into account. This is how the Manchester public also saw it before the man who was its captain.

But he had no choice against Guardiola’s team, which achieved a new record. He made City the third team to reach five successive FA Cup semi-finals alongside Manchester City from 1962-1966 and Arsenal from 2001-04.

Insatiable Haaland and voracious City, who in two games has scored thirteen goals. Seven against Leipzig, six against Burnley, who lasted only half an hour, with a daring staging but which gradually faded.

It was in 32 when Haaland entered the scene. He opened the scoring in an action that started with a kick from the goalkeeper, Stefan Ortega directly to the Norwegian who made the wall with Julián Álvarez. The striker put his toe in before the goal came out and brought the ball into the net.

Four later the second arrived. In a run on the left by Phil Foden that ended with a cross into the area where the Norwegian arrived, faithful to the appointment. He did not fail.

Burnley stopped the gale. He reached the intermission with only two goals against. Although everything changed later. Already Riyad Mahrez was able to make the third although goalkeeper Bailey Peacock Farrell intervened with a great save. But then, in 59, came the third. Of the City and of Haaland. Foden shot and the ball hit the post. He fell at the feet of the Norwegian who did not forgive.

The Spanish coach Pep Guardiola considered the goal fulfilled. He dosed forces, made changes. Haaland disappeared from the field but the city machinery did not stop. In minute 62 the fourth came, by Julián Álvarez, to an empty goal, after a good action by Kevin De Bruyne and six later the fifth, signed by the young Cole Palmer, who replaced Haaland, who pushed the ball into the net after from a center to the Foden area, another of the highlights.

The sixth was scored, again, by Álvarez, who crossed half the field after receiving De Bruyne’s ball, faced the goalkeeper and resolved to lengthen the avalanche and seal City’s qualification to the Wembley semifinals.
