City were heading into the second-leg against German side Monchengladbach with a 2-0 aggregate lead, but it took just 11 minutes for De Bruyne to effectively end the tie.

After passing the ball around the German's side area, the ball was cut back to the Belgium star.

De Bruyne steadied himself before launching a bullet-like strike into the top left corner with his weaker foot.

City players were thrilled with the strike and fans were equally amazed at the goal.

Many fans were quick to praise De Bruyne as the best midfielder in the world.

De Bruyne's strike marks the 25th goal from the Belgium from outside the box in all competitions since he joined the club, the most from anyone playing in the Premier League.

Only six minutes later, İlkay Gündoğan doubled the lead to put City 4-0 up in the tie.

De Bruyne's goal follows Lamella screamer

De Bruyne's goal follows one of the greatest ever Premier League goal's from Tottenham's Erik Lamela in his side's 2-1 derby defeat.

Arsenal recovered from Lamela's astonishing Rabona opener to beat 10-man Tottenham 2-1 in a dramatic north London derby despite the absence of exiled captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Lamela scored one of the most audacious goals in Premier League history with an exquisite strike in the first half at the Emirates Stadium.

But the Tottenham forward went from hero to villain when he was sent off for a second booking after Jose Mourinho's side blew the lead.
