Manchester City 1-0 Atletico Madrid


De Bruyne’s 13th goal of the season is enough to hand Manchester City a one-goal advantage at the Etihad Stadium.

Simeone refused to shake hands with Guardiola at the death, suggesting he was rather frustrated at his team’s performance.

Atletico never looked like scoring this evening, and their rearguard was finally broken When De Bruyne fired home from Foden’s through-ball.

The Englishman had only been on the pitch for a minute or so, but his contribution was massive, and the host deserved to win the first leg.

Starting Lineup:

MANCHESTER CITY (4-3-3): Ederson;

John Stones, Nathan Ake, Aymeric Laporte, Joao Cancelo;

Kevin De Bruyne, Rodrigo, llkay Gundogan;

Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling.


SUBS: Zack Steffen, Scott Carson, CJ Egan-Riley, Jack Grealish, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Fernandinho, Phil Foden, Gabriel Jesus, Luke Mbet.

– MAN CITY 1-0 ATLETICO MADRID -Foden makes an impact in less than two minutes, and it is his pass that picked out goalscorer De Bruyne. The England international collected the ball on the edge of the box and nutmegged
Reinildo, with De Bruyne composing himself before firing across Oblak.

So, what’s next?

Atletico will hope that home advantage plays into their hands in the second leg, but they will need to change their tactics.

Otherwise, they will crash out of the Champions League at the quarter-final stage.

The city will have to play without Jesus as he will be suspended following his yellow card this evening.

Still, the Premier League champions will fancy their chances of moving onto the semi-finals.
