It was a dream start for the visitors, with Bernardo Silva firing home a free-kick inside the opening two minutes of the match.

It stayed 2-1 until half time, but after the interval, Man City scored two quickfire goals of their own to go ahead. Phil Foden arrowed a wonderful strike into the top corner of Andriy Lunin’s goal, before Josko Gvardiol did similar a few minutes later.

However, it wasn’t done there, as Federico Valverde made it 3-3 late on. Vinicius Junior played a deep cross into the box, and the Uruguayan volleyed brilliantly into the far corner to restore parity.

It does mean that Real Madrid need to win in Manchester next week to progress to the semi-finals, so it’s certainly a better result for Man City. Ancelotti’s side will fancy their chances though, you can be sure of that.
