Manchester City went down fighting as their Champions League hopes ended with a battling 1-1 draw against 10-man Real Madrid at the Etihad Stadium.
Manager Roberto Mancini was again left to rue a costly decision to deploy a three-man defence as the Spanish giants tore into the hosts in the early stages.
Karim Benzema struck and Real should have had more in a devastating spell but City grew in confidence after switching formations and Sergio Aguero levelled from the spot after Alvaro Arbeloa was sent off.
