During the first period, despite the aggressive pressing of Manchester City, which failed to pay more than once, it was Real Madrid that always kept the foot on the ball without succeeding in destabilizing the opposing block, particularly well in place. But the opportunities only came a quarter of an hour past the meeting when in the penalty area, Gabriel Jesus tries his luck with the right foot and fixes Thibaut Courtois, who, with a nice relaxation, intervenes concedes the corner. It was the most beautiful thing in those forty-five minutes with perhaps another action that nearly hit the target when the Belgian keeper seemed beaten following a corner kick, but the defense kept watch. We stayed there in this first half, and we will regret the injury out of Frenchman Aymeric Laporte.
This poster really got carried away only in the second part, and it was Ryad Mahrez who sounded the revolt by looking a little too much for the skylight of Courtois, but it was only partially postponed. However, against the game’s course, Madrid is at the end of the hour and will pass in front of a goal from Isco with a strike of the right foot excellently served in this by Vinicius Junior in the penalty area.
The remount was not long in coming and the inevitable Gabriel Jesus a quarter of an hour later on a center by Kevin De Brune and a harmless heading defeated the great Courtois who until then. And a misfortune never coming alone five minutes later the referee does not hesitate to designate the penalty spot for Manchester City! (Raheem Sterling has mown by Daniel Carvajal).
The English team opened wide the doors to the quarterfinals, especially as a centerpiece of the Real defense, Ramos for having seen yellow will fail in the return match.
