WATCH FULL HIGHLIGHTS: MANCHESTER CITY 4-3 REAL MADRID GOALS AND HIGHLIGHTS OF MATCH
Manchester City recorded a 4-3 victory over Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night.
Kevin De Bruyne sent the Etihad into a frenzy with his goal to put City ahead two minutes into the game, courtesy of a cross into the box from Riyad Mahrez. De Bruyne made a brave diving header to give City a 1-0 lead.
Gabriel Jesus doubled the City lead in the 11th minute. After David Alaba misplayed a De Bruyne cross into the box, Gabriel Jesus collected the chance and finished past Thibaut Courtois to make it 2–0 in favour of City.
Benzema reduced the deficit as Ferland Mendy’s cross into the area arrived waist-high, but Benzema somehow swung through it and sent the ball into the back of the net for an incredible goal.
Fernandinho sent a perfect cross in after winning the ball as Foden rushed into the area and headed it in for the 3–1 lead.
Just two minutes later, Real would pull one back once again thanks to Vinícius. The Brazilian took advantage of Man City’s right-back crisis and burst past Fernandinho before slotting it past Ederson to make it 3–2.
Bernardo Silva stunned the Etihad with a rocket of a shot into the upper corner. After Zinchenko was taken down just outside the box, most Real players, including Courtois, eased up, expecting the referee to blow his whistle. Instead, the advantage was played in City’s favour before Silva launched a sizzling effort past the starstruck keeper.
Real Madrid cut Man City’s lead to one for the third time with a Benzema penalty. After Laporte was called for a handball inside the penalty area, Benzema stepped to the penalty spot and chipped his shot into the net with a Panenka that silenced the Etihad for his 41st goal of the season.
All eyes now turn to Madrid with Real having overcome deficits at some point during each of the last second’s legs. And the same is expected next Wednesday at the Bernabéu
