By Majesty 2 Min Read

After a thrilling first leg at the Bernabeu, Manchester City and Real Madrid finished even in their Champions League quarterfinal. They had shared six goals between them.

Bernardo Silva skillfully sidestepped Andriy Lunin and wrapped a 25-yard free kick around the wall to give Pep Guardiola’s team the lead in the second minute.

Madrid, the 14-time European Cup winners, levelled the score after two deflected goals. Prior to Rodrygo breaking through the City defence and putting the ball in the far corner of Stefan Ortega’s goal via Manuel Akanji’s heel, Eduardo Camavinga’s long-range shot struck Ruben Dias and spun into the net.

Rodrygo celebrates goal against Man City

Under the covered Bernabeu, City dominated possession the entire time, but they lacked quality in the last third until Phil Foden came on.

After being on the periphery of the game, the England midfielder found space outside the area to turn and shoot into the top corner to draw City even.

Shortly after, Josko Gvardiol, a left-back, made a brilliant right-foot shot that reached the far corner to score his first goal since joining City in the summer from RB Leipzig.

Federico Valverde’s spectacular volley for Madrid, however, tied the score, setting up an exciting second leg at Etihad Stadium on Wednesday, April 17—the venue of City’s 4-0 semifinal victory over Madrid last season.

However, Foden hobbled following a late tackle on his ankle, causing anxiety for City.

Despite having a “bad dead leg,” Foden told TNT Sports, he was hopeful of being healthy for Saturday’s Premier League home match against Luton, allaying concerns over a major injury.
