Manchester City striker Julián Álvarez registered a brace in the Premier League club’s 3-1 win over FK Crvena Zvezda. After the English side gave up the first goal to the Serbian club, the Argentine came to the rescue.
Álvarez scored back-to-back goals to give Manchester City the 2-1 lead, with Rodri adding the third goal. The 23-year-old recorded an overall 10 rating from the statistical outlet Sofascore.
On Wednesday, the outlet noted that Álvarez is now tied with former Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar Jr., registering a 10 rating on seven occasions.
Furthermore, Kylian Mbappé (9) and Lionel Messi (16) are the two players ahead of the Manchester City striker. Mbappé will need to pick up a couple of 10 ratings to create distance between him and Álvarez.

Nonetheless, with how the 24-year-old is scoring goals, including a penalty kick strike against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, expect 10 ratings from the Frenchman. Additionally, the winger is young enough to reach Messi in this feat.
