UEFA Champions League: Manchester City Make History In Madrid

Manchester City have for the first time beaten Real Madrid following their 2-1 win at Bernabeu in a UEFA Champions League Round of 16 leg 1 of 2 match played on Wednesday night.

City had never won against Real Madrid and they had faced each other four times, each occasion in the Champions League, with City losing their two away games at Santiago Bernabeu and drawing the other two at the Etihad.

Real Madrid opened the scoring through Isco before City’s Gabriel Jesus equalised with a superb header that went to the far left corner.

City were later awarded a penalty kick after Madrid right-back, Carvajal had fouled Raheem Sterling inside the box. Mancity captain of the day, Kevin De Bruyne converted from the spot to make it 2-1 for the visitors.

The goal was Kevin De Bruyne’s 50th goal in all competitions for Manchester City and was the first time he has both scored and assisted in a Champions League match.

Madrid skipper, Sergio Ramos was later given marching orders after he had fouled Gabriel Jesus which means he will not be available for the return leg at Etihad.

City however lost Laporte to injury, he was making a comeback from an injury that sidelined him for the good part of this season.
