Real Madrid, Man City Draw First Leg Of Champions League Semi


Kevin De Bruyne’s thumping drive cancelled out a brilliant strike from Vinicius Junior as holders Real Madrid and Manchester City drew 1-1 in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final on Tuesday.

Vinicius drilled Madrid ahead on 36 minutes but De Bruyne brought City level midway through the second half at the Santiago Bernabeu, leaving the tie finely poised ahead of next week’s return fixture in England.

City dominated possession in the first half but it was Real who went in ahead after Vinicius Jr linked well with Eduardo Camavinga and Luka Modric.

Pep Guardiola’s side stayed patient though, and got their reward when De Bruyne struck a rasping shot past Thibaut Courtois to make it 1-1 in the 67th minute.
