Real Madrid vs Manchester City - LIVE!

Kevin De Bruyne’s brilliant strike earned Manchester City a 1-1 draw with Real Madrid at the Bernabeu to keep the Champions League semi-final tie firmly in the balance.

Whoever comes out on top at the Etihad next week will be strong favourites to lift the trophy on June 10, with this a battle between a side still craving their first Champions League success and another who have won the competition a record 14 times. That experience from Real was on full display in the first-half, their rope-a-dope tactics working to fine effect. City dominated possession, territory and every other stat aside from the one that matters, as the hosts broke away and took the lead through a superb Vinicius Jr strike from distance.

However, a similarly impressive effort from De Bruyne got Pep Guardiola’s side level after the break, and they will feel they have the slight advantage heading back to Manchester as they look to down the defending champions.

Grealish reflects on Bernabeu occasion

22:36 , Matt Verri

“I really enjoyed it.

“I had a text from my mum before the game saying these are the nighs you dreamed of as a kid. Everyone in the world was watchng. Sometimes you pinch yourself. This is the life, innit.”

Ancelotti’s thoughts on the draw

22:21 , Matt Verri

“An interesting game. Difficult for us in the first half and the second half was much better. We had good control in the game.

“When they had lots of possession we were in control defensively then when we started to play the ball we caused difficulties.

“We had to keep our positions defensively then when we got the opportunity, we scored the first goal.”

“Defensively we were good. Rudiger against Haaland did well and the midfield had control. The performance was good and we are happy. We have strong motivation for the next game.”

The run goes on...

22:16 , Matt Verri

Reaction from Rodri

22:13 , Matt Verri

“We stay in the game with our philosophy, we keep the face, keep playing even though was difficult.

“The key was shooting from the front area, I try some times, then Kevin finds the goal.”

Crucial save...

22:10 , Matt Verri

22:00 , Matt Verri

Second leg will take place next Wednesday, May 17 at the Etihad in Manchester.

Slight edge to Man City as it stands, as they have home advantage to look forward to. Real well capable of travelling to England getting a result though.

Going to be some night!

Huge goal!

FT: Real Madrid 1-1 Man City

21:55 , Matt Verri

And that’s the final whistle. Great match.

Two brilliant goals and it’s all level heading to the Etihad, with De Bruyne cancelling out Vinicius’ stunner.

Right in the balance!

21:51 , Matt Verri

90 mins: Tchouameni nearly does win it!

Such a clean strike from distance, arrowed towards the top corner and Ederson does well to keep that out.

Three minutes added on...

21:50 , Matt Verri

89 mins: Neither side particularly wants to risk pushing for a winner, they both look happy enough to leave it at 1-1.

Saying that, Real Madrid scored twice in 90 seconds when the match ticked into stoppage-time 12 months ago...

21:47 , Matt Verri

86 mins: Bernando the latest player into the book, yellow cards starting to add up.

Rudiger keeps the free-kick alive, wins a corner for his side. Ancelotti makes a third change, Nacho on for Modric. That will see Camavinga move into midfield.

21:45 , Matt Verri

84 mins: And another Real Madrid sub. Tchouameni on to replace Kroos, who was on a yellow card and that’s a risk Ancelotti did not need.

Not a single City player warming up, looks like the XI on the pitch will be playing the full 90 minutes.

21:44 , Matt Verri

82 mins: Lots of possession for City, not really going anywhere with it though.

First change of the match has been made, with Asensio on for Rodrygo. Guardiola yet to turn to his bench.

21:40 , Matt Verri

79 mins: Camavinga slides in, poor challenge as he catches Rodri and that will be a yellow for the left-back.

This tie is perfectly poised, feels like either side are well-capable of scoring in the next ten minutes and taking a lead to Manchester for next week’s second leg.

21:39 , Matt Verri

78 mins: HUGE SAVE!

Big, big moment. Kroos clips a brilliant cross to the back post, Benzema gets up and powers the header across goal, Ederson down well to parry it away.

21:36 , Matt Verri

75 mins: Blue Moon heard from the away fans, as the jeers start from the Real supporters.

City seeing much more of the ball again since that goal, Real were having the better of it but they’ve been pegged back by the De Bruyne strike.

21:33 , Matt Verri

72 mins: Gundogan into the book, as he catches Carvajal late. Alaba and Kroos standing over this free-kick.

It’s Alaba, goes for goal but it’s well over the bar. Ederson never looked worried by that.

21:30 , Matt Verri

70 mins: Lots of complaining from the Real Madrid players and bench, Ancelotti shown a yellow card. Not sure what that was all about.

That’s such a big goal for City. They’ll be delighted if it stays like this heading back to Manchester.

GOAL! Real Madrid 1-1 Man City | Kevin De Bruyne 67'

21:28 , Matt Verri


That’s a sensational strike from De Bruyne. Falls for him outside the box, and he absolutely lashes it past Courtois. Can’t hit them much better than that.

21:26 , Matt Verri

66 mins: Third handball appeal in the last five minutes. Another shameless handball appeal.

Vinicius and Ancelotti convinced it should have been. It wasn’t really handball and it definitely wasn’t in the box - apart from that...

21:24 , Matt Verri

64 mins: Stones very calm in his own six-yard box, as Benzema came flying in to press.

Real have it back though, Rodrygo cuts inside and Dias can only knock the ball behind for a corner. City under real pressure.

21:23 , Matt Verri

62 mins: It’s all Real now, their best spell of the match really.

Rodrygo with some lovely footwork, slides the ball through to Benzema. Fired into the six-yard box, Valverde looks to control and it bounces up and hits Grealish. More penalty appeals, again waved away. Nothing in that.

21:20 , Matt Verri

60 mins: And another corner coming up, Vinicius’ cross charged down by Stones. Half-hearted appeals for handball, never getting that though.

Floated out to Valverde, got to be almost 25 yards out. Strike is decent enough but always flying over the bar.

21:19 , Matt Verri

58 mins: Vinicius is just electric, skipping inside and his shot is deflected behind for a Real corner.

Taken short, worked out to Rodrygo and his effort takes a flick off Grealish and behind for another corner. Better from the hosts in attack.

21:16 , Matt Verri

55 mins: Grealish with space to jink into the box, lays the ball back and Rodri lets it run for De Bruyne.

On his left foot, 20 yards out and he goes for placement but Courtois is down in plenty of time to save that comfortably. Real goalkeeper having another really good night.

Haaland now looks to be in, but Alaba gets back and slides in to block the shot. Great defending.

21:14 , Matt Verri

53 mins: De Bruyne played through on the right, so much space that he can drive inside and get one-on-one with Courtois. Superb save from the goalkeeper, made himself really big.

Offside flag then eventually goes up... was very tight. VAR would have had a close look at that.

21:11 , Matt Verri

51 mins: Wow, that would have been a stunning goal. Real click into gear again.

Benzema and Vinicius involved in the build-up, as ever, slick moves sends Benzema in on goal and his effort flies over the bar. Took a slight deflection.

Real stay on the attack, Rodri goes brilliantly though to stand Vinicius up and win the ball back as the Brazilian looks to skip past him.

21:09 , Matt Verri

48 mins: Real gameplan isn’t going to change. They’ll still be just as patient, knowing the danger they pose on the threat.

Modric looks to set Camavinga away down the left, just too much on the pass though and the Frenchman can’t keep it in play.

Back underway!

21:05 , Matt Verri

Up and running again in Madrid!

As good as anyone in the world right now?

21:03 , Matt Verri

20:57 , Matt Verri

One shot for Real Madrid in that half. One goal. Same old Real...

City have had 68% of the ball, six shots and pretty much all of the territory. Means absolutely nothing though.

Real doing Real things.

Some strike

20:54 , Matt Verri

HT: Real Madrid 1-0 Man City

20:51 , Matt Verri

Referee will be glad that half is done, was all starting to get very heated. Guardiola is having another long chat with the linesman.

It’s Real who lead, after one moment of magic from Vinicius. City with so much of the ball and plenty of control, but nothing to show for it.


20:50 , Matt Verri

45+2 mins: There is the first yellow card of the match, Kroos best not bother complaining about that.

That is absolutely wild from the Real midfielder, almost hip high as he deliberately takes Gundogan out. Yellow is fortunate.

20:48 , Matt Verri

45 mins: De Bruyne with the early cross into the box, Grealish tries to get there at the back post but Carvajal sends him flying into the boards with an entirely pointless shove.

Carvajal then throws himself to the floor, claiming Grealish has lashed out at him. Definitely not. Alaba drags his team-mate up, unimpressed with the rolling around he’s seeing.

Two minutes added on.

20:45 , Matt Verri

42 mins: Gundogan makes the run in behind for City, fires the ball across the face of goal but nobody there for the tap-in. De Bruyne keeps the attack going though, wins a corner.

He whips it to the back post, Rodri lurking but the City midfielder gives away a free-kick.

20:43 , Matt Verri

40 mins: City back to controlling possession, but that danger from Real on the break now feels a lot more serious.

Vinicius and Rodrygo waiting to pounce, and City are looking exposed in transition.

20:41 , Matt Verri

38 mins: We shouldn’t be surprised. It’s what Real do.

Ruthless when their chance came, and now all of a sudden City look rattled. Real are pushing for a second, visitors have to hold their nerve here and make it to half-time.

GOAL! Real Madrid 1-0 Man City | Vinicius Jr 36'

20:39 , Matt Verri


Talk about against the run of play! Modric with a nice touch, allows Camavinga to bring the ball forward into the City half.

He plays it to Vinicius, 20 yards out and he hammers a stunning effort past Ederson. Outrageous finish!

20:37 , Matt Verri

35 mins: There are moments for Real though on the counter.

Valverde with pretty much his first touch drives into space on the right, and curls a wonderful cross into the box. Benzema brings it down, bounces up onto his arm though and the whistle goes.

More like it from Real.

20:36 , Matt Verri

33 mins: Strange feel to this match, Real seemingly trying to lull City in with how easy they have it on the ball.

Dias stands on the ball on the halfway line, walks forward and still nobody closes him down. All the way to the edge of the Real box, eventually Vinicius gets back to clear.

Real win a corner, whipped towards the back post but City clear.

20:34 , Matt Verri

31 mins: Gundogan gets some treatment, as both sets of players go over to the touchline for a few instructions.

Guardiola spending most of his time pointing at Rudiger though, he’s really unhappy at some of the challenges from the former Chelsea defender.

20:31 , Matt Verri

29 mins: All starting to get a bit heated. Rudiger crashes into Gundogan, City don’t get the free-kick and Real come away on the break.

Alaba bursting into space on the left, but then the referee blows the whistle and halts play... thinks it was a head injury. Just the six City players rushing over to complain that they didn’t get the initial decision. Should really have been a foul.

20:29 , Matt Verri

27 mins: Real fans have responded to that rare attack from their side, and all of a sudden the hosts are pressing higher up the pitch.

That suits City though, they play through it and work the space. Carvajal dives in on Grealish and gives away the free-kick, City winger furious that no card comes out.

20:27 , Matt Verri

25 mins: Sensational from Dias!

City lose concentration, Rodri with a terrible pass and Vinicius jumps on it. Fires the ball across the face of goal, Benzema waiting for a tap in but Dias slides in and hacks it away to safety. Denied a certain goal.

20:26 , Matt Verri

23 mins: So comfortable for City in possession, just passing it through Real Madrid. Hosts really struggling.

Real supporters jeering loudly as the visitors knock the ball around, City need to keep the pace up in possession. Almost too easy for them at the moment.

20:22 , Matt Verri

20 mins: Stones driving at the Real defence, looks to have been brought down right on the edge of the box by Camavinga who slides in.

Referee playing the advantage, even though there isn’t really one, and Gundogan fires over from distance. Guardiola sharing his views on that with the fourth official...

20:21 , Matt Verri

18 mins: Finally, something for Real fans to get excited about.

Rodrygo very nearly sends Benzema through on goal, Ederson flies off his line though and gathers before the Frenchman can poke the ball away.

20:19 , Matt Verri

17 mins: Real have to get going, they’re being dominated here. Grealish clips a cross in, picks out Haaland and his header is comfortable enough for Courtois.

Carvajal then brings Gundogan down, not happy as the whistle goes for a free-kick. Got the ball but also plenty of the City midfielder.

Hosts have been really poor so far.

20:17 , Matt Verri

15 mins: Twice City have gone for a corner pinged out to Bernardo on the edge of the box.

He brings it down this time, floated to the back post and Haaland goes down claiming he’s been shoved. Real defenders slammed the door shut on him.

Haaland gets his first decent chance of the night seconds later, but it’s a tame effort straight at Courtois.

20:16 , Matt Verri

13 mins: Real barely having a kick, but they’ve got no interest in trying to win the ball back. Happy to sit back and wait for their moments on the counter.

Rodri allowed space for the shot 25 yards out, catches it well and Courtois is down to turn it behind for a corner.

20:13 , Matt Verri

11 mins: Grealish and Bernardo staying so wide for City, whereas it’s pretty narrow from Real. Vinicius largely central and it’s more of a 4-4-2 for them.

Carvajal looks for the big ping over the top towards Benzema, too much on it though and the ball bounces through for Ederson.

20:11 , Matt Verri

8 mins: Ederson with the ball at his feet for about 20 seconds, eventually gets bored as nobody in white comes to close him down.

Punted long and De Bruyne picks up the second ball, played out wide to Bernardo. He pulls it back for De Bruyne, catches the first-time strike sweetly and it’s parried out by Courtois.

20:08 , Matt Verri

6 mins: Gundogan tries his luck from the edge of the box, blocked but Akanji is swiftly on the scene to win it back for City.

They’ve made a confident start to the match, starting to see more of the ball too. Bernardo being allowed plenty of space out on the right.

20:07 , Matt Verri

4 mins: Vinicius has his first chance to run with it, after a glorious flick from Benzema. Lovely break from Real.

Ball played inside, very nearly perfectly into the path of Benzema. City just about hack it away and now they come away on the counter, as De Bruyne wins a corner.

Frantic start to the match!

20:04 , Matt Verri

2 mins: Late challenge from Grealish, catches Rodrygo and the Real fans are less than impressed with that.

It’s the home sides seeing most of the ball in the opening minutes, City happy to let them have it at the back. Grealish limping a bit, hurt himself making that challenge.


20:02 , Matt Verri

Up and running at the Bernabeu!

19:58 , Matt Verri

Here. We. Go.

Players are out onto the pitch, City fans doing their best to be heard but they’re facing an uphill battle.

Ancelotti looking as chilled as ever, not a care in the world as he leans back in the dugout. Not a man for nerves.

Five minutes to go!

19:54 , Matt Verri

Firepower for both sides

19:51 , Matt Verri

Benzema hasn’t been at his brilliant best this season, and the attention coming into this tie is on Haaland.

Only four Champions League goals for the Frenchman so far on the run to the last-four, but he’s well-capable of stepping up and proving to be the different tonight.

Haaland vs Benzema, Vinicius vs Grealish... up to the forward players to deliver for their sides.

19:46 , Matt Verri

Players finishing up their warm-ups at the Bernabeu.

Perfect weather, brilliant atmosphere... stage is set for this to be a memorable 90 minutes.

City players were booed on, they’ve been booed off with even more passion by the home fans. Up to them to get those supporters quiet as quickly as possible.

Guardiola’s pre-match thoughts

19:38 , Matt Verri

“One day we will get it. We will get to the final and we will win it. We come here this season to do it.

“To win this competition you have to beat the best teams and Madrid is the best team in this competition in the past decade.

“The difference this year is the second leg is at home. I’m not sure if it is an advantage or disadvantage but I think everything will be decided in Manchester.”

City able to move on?

19:32 , Matt Verri

First time City have come back to the Bernabeu since THAT happened.

Rodrygo left them stunned, just as the visitors looked certain to cruise into the Champions League final.

Real really do believe they can do anything in this competition...

Real fans are ready!

19:27 , Matt Verri

How it stands for City

19:22 , Matt Verri

Can’t go too long without mentioning City’s treble bid.

They could win three trophies this season, they could win none. Huge final month of the campaign coming up.

Guardiola’s side are strong favourites to win the Premier League, though Arsenal are still just about within range, and then there’s an FA Cup final against Manchester United to come on June 3.

They’ll be hoping to then make the trip for the Champions League final a week later, against one of the Milan sides.

Kroos not bothered by Rooney’s predictions

19:14 , Matt Verri

Wayne Rooney has predicted that Man City will “blow Real Madrid away” over the two legs and seal their place in the Champions League final.

Safe to say that Toni Kroos doesn’t agree, nor he is paying much attention to those writing the defending champions off.

“It was the same a year ago, no? That Madrid were out, and we did it,” said Kroos.

“I remember words from last year, not Rooney’s - who is a guy I like a lot, apart from what he said - but it doesn’t affect us.

“It doesn’t motivate us more either, because it’s impossible to be more motivated than we are.”

Real Madrid vs Premier League

19:08 , Matt Verri

Real Madrid have got a pretty decent recent record against English opposition.

Man City beaten in the semi-finals last year before victory over Liverpool in Paris as Real lifted the trophy, and this season they’ve already seen off Liverpool and Chelsea.

Guardiola: Not here for revenge

19:00 , Matt Verri

Pep Guardiola disagrees with Manchester City midfielder Rodri that tonight’s Champions League tie with Real Madrid is a chance for revenge.

City were beaten in heartbreaking fashion by the Spanish giants in the last four a year ago and have a chance to make amends this term.

Ahead of the first leg though, Guardiola insisted the focus on the game in hand rather than looking back 12 months.

The City manager said: “It was tough but we made an exceptional first game in Manchester and played a really good game here.

“In general it was a good performance but it was not enough. You congratulate them and accept it and now one year later we are here. We are not here for revenge. It is another opportunity. One day we will get it. We will get to the final and win it.

“It didn’t happen last season as we played Real Madrid and in this competition they know exactly what they have to do.”

City stars return

18:46 , Matt Verri

Walker comes in for Man City, as they look to combat the pace of Vinicius Jr. Akanji shifts over to left-back in the absence of Ake.

Rodri back in midfield, while Bernardo and Grealish also return after being rested, and De Bruyne is fit to start. Haaland leading the line, not exactly a huge shock...

Perfect evening for it!

Ancelotti: Preparing to stop City, not just Haaland

18:27 , Matt Verri

Carlo Ancelotti insists Real Madrid cannot focus on only Erling Haaland tonight.

The Norway forward has hit 51 goals across all competitions during his first season under Pep Guardiola, breaking the Premier League scoring record along the way.

Naturally, the striker has attracted plenty of attention heading into this tie, but Ancelotti has stated City are simply too dangerous to focus on only one player.

“We are not preparing a match to stop a player, we are preparing to stop an entire team who look unstoppable,” Ancelotti said.

“Manchester City didn’t change their style to accommodate Haaland, they have more options vertically with him using long balls and a more direct approach. But they are still a team that work the ball really well.”


A little montage to get you in the mood!

18:16 , Matt Verri

Hosts have gone early...

18:10 , Matt Verri

Just the two hours before kick-off then, for Real Madrid’s team news.

Modric is fit to start in midfield, alongside Kroos and Valverde. Rodrygo’s strong form is enough for him to keep his place in the front three, while once again it’s Camavinga who gets the nod at left-back.

So much Champions League experience in that side.

Real Madrid team news

18:04 , Matt Verri

Starting XI: Courtois; Carvajal Rudiger, Alaba, Camavinga; Valverde, Kroos, Modric; Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius.

Subs: Lunin, Lopez, Vallejo, Nacho, Hazard, Asensio, Odriozola, Lucas, Tchouameni, Ceballos, Mariano

Rodri: We want revenge

17:57 , Matt Verri

That defeat was a painful one for Man City, and Rodri has urged his team-mates to use the memory of that collapse to fuel them on their return to Madrid tonight.

The Spain midfielder said: “Football gives you the option to have revenge.

“We have the philosophy you can always learn from past experiences. We did a great two games but football is like this and we didn’t go through.

“We will fight again. We will try to learn from what we did bad in that moment.”

Twelve months ago...

17:50 , Matt Verri

It was fairly eventful when these sides met in the last-four a year ago.

Man City were seemingly cruising into the final, 5-3 up on aggregate heading into stoppage-time with Real appearing to be a beaten side.

Well... things swiftly changed. Rodrygo scored twice in 90 seconds to send it to extra-time, before Karim Benzema netted what proved to be the winner from the spot. Madness.

Standard Sport prediction

17:43 , Matt Verri

It would be foolish to write Madrid off in this competition but this feels like a different City.

So strong, so structured and so dangerous, with Erling Haaland continuing his remarkable first season in England, the stage looks set for City to take control of this semi-final tie.

Manchester City to win, 2-1.

Man City team news

17:34 , Matt Verri

Manchester City are without defender Nathan Ake for tonight’s trip to the Bernabeu.

The 28-year-old, who only recently returned from a hamstring injury, was forced off during the 2-1 win over Leeds on Saturday with a calf problem. Kyle Walker was swiftly called upon to replace the Dutch centre-back.

Manuel Akanji could move over to the left side of defence to cover Ake, as he did against Arsenal, while left-footed defender Aymeric Laporte is another option.

In more positive news, Kevin De Bruyne returned from fitness concerns to start against Leeds after missing the previous two games. Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez, though, were the stars of the show, with two goals and two assists between them, and will be hoping to start the titantic Santiago Bernabeu clash.

John Stones, Rodri, Bernardo Silva and Jack Grealish were all rested against Leeds so should come in.

Predicted Man City XI: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Akanji; Stones, Rodri; Silva, De Bruyne, Gundogan, Grealish; Haaland.

Real Madrid team news

17:28 , Matt Verri

Luka Modric has handed Real Madrid a major selection boost ahead of City’s visit tonight.

The first leg at the Bernabeu had been a question mark for the Croatian midfielder, who has only just made his playing return from a hamstring injury. Modric though came off the bench in Saturday’s Copa del Rey final victory over Osasuna after two games out.

Aurelien Tchouameni had started in the 37-year-old’s place yet Modric’s eight-minute run out should be deemed enough to prove his ability to drop straight into the line-up for this semi-final tie.

Real will definitely be without reserve midfielder Dani Ceballos due to a thigh muscle injury. In defence, Ferland Mendy (calf) and Eder Militao (suspended) are unavailable.

Predicted Real Madrid XI: Courtois; Carvajal, Rudiger, Alaba, Camavinga; Valverde, Modric, Kroos; Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius Jr.
