Real Madrid advances in thrilling 4-4 draw with Manchester City

After a gripping 210-minute clash at the Etihad, the tie ended 4-4, with extra time leaving the score tied at 1-1. Crucial misses from Bernardo Silva and Mateo Kovacic in the shootout saw Real Madrid advance.

Julian Alvarez opened the scoring in the shootout, followed by Ederson’s spectacular save from Luka Modric. However, Silva’s attempt down the middle was thwarted by Andriy Lunin. Despite Kovacic’s miss, Jude Bellingham and Lucas Vazquez found the net, with Phil Foden, Nacho, and even Ederson scoring for City. Antonio Rudiger sealed Madrid’s victory with a composed penalty.

With a 4-3 penalty win, Real Madrid secured a spot in the Champions League semifinals, overcoming Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. The game ended 1-1 after extra time and 4-4 on aggregate.

City’s hopes were dashed as Bernardo Silva and Mateo Kovacic failed to convert their penalties, leading to their elimination by the 14-time champions. Rodrygo initially put Madrid ahead in the 12th minute, but Kevin De Bruyne’s equalizer in the 76th kept City in contention.

Despite City’s dominance, especially after the first leg’s 3-3 draw in Madrid, Rudiger’s missed chance in the first half of extra time kept the tension high until the final penalty.
