Match Highlights View More Below

City’s hopes of progressing to the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League may be over, but pride was restored after a stirring second-half fight-back against 10-man Real Madrid earned a hard-fought 1-1 draw.

With Madrid rampant in the early stages of the first-half, the Blues fell behind to a Karim Benzema goal on ten minutes and could have been dead and buried as the La Liga champions attacked at will.

But City dug in, were a different team after the break and Sergio Aguero restored parity from the spot on 73 minutes and it was Madrid who were forced to hang on as the hosts piled forward looking for a winner.

Though it wasn’t to be, at least the Blues proved - once again - they are more than a match for a team Roberto Mancini believes is among the best in the world.
