Manchester City fought back to a 1-1 draw with Real Madrid on Tuesday in the first leg of their champions league semi-final at the Bernabeu Stadium.
The match was a repeat of last year’s semi-final between the two clubs where Madrid triumph and eventually won the trophy.
Today’s match was like a revenge for City, but it was Madrid that took the lead on 36 minutes.
Vinicius Junior collected a good pass and blasted the ball from medium range into the top left corner, giving the goalkeeper no chance.
On 55 minutes, the ball was laid off to Kevin De Bruyne on the edge of the box. He shot through a crowd of players towards the bottom left corner and forced Thibaut Courtois to make a decent save.
City mounted the pressure on Madrid and were rewarded on 67 minutes.
Kevin De Bruyne got to the ball on the edge of the box and fire in a first-time shot without any hesitation. The strike was excellent and went straight into the bottom left corner.
On 78 minutes, Karim Benzema created himself some space inside the goalmouth and connected with the resulting free kick. His header would have probably ended up low in the middle of the goal, but Ederson pulled off a superb reflex save to thwart him.
