After a 1-1 draw in Spain, the Champions League semifinal match’s second leg was played at The Etihad. The Manchester crowd responded admirably to the situation and helped their team win.

How it occurred.

After the first leg, in which both teams performed similarly and were scored against, Pep Guardiola promised his team would play with a more fluid set-up, and that is exactly what they delivered.

Manchester City dominated a lackluster Real Madrid team that couldn’t seem to find their footing. This was a stark contrast to their more reserved first-leg performance.

Early pressure from the City Citizens forced the visitors to rely on Thibaut Courtois’ brilliance to keep the score level. The hosts, however, would not be deterred for long, as Bernardo Silva gave them the lead in the 23rd minute after De Bruyne set him up.

In the 37th minute, the Portugal international doubled the score by heading in from about 15 yards to the post following a scramble in the goalmouth.

Real Madrid started the second half much stronger, but their efforts were insufficient because it didn’t take long for the home team to regain the upper hand.

A gorgeous cross from Kevin de Bruyne was headed by Manuel Akanji onto Militao, who put the ball in his own net to make it 3-0.

In the 91st minute of the game, Julian Alvarez, a substitute, combined with Phil Foden, another substitute, to put the game’s final points on the board.

In order to win their first-ever Champions League trophy, Manchester City will face Inter Milan in the final in Istanbul the following month.
