Real Madrid 1-2 Manchester City: Kevin De Bryune penalty downs Real Madrid at home in the UEFA Champions League first leg

Isco gave Real Madrid the lead on 60 minutes after Manchester City’s defensive mixtape between Rodri and Nicolas Otamendi that allowed Vinicius Jr to find Isco for the opener.

The 27-year-old found himself with only City goalkeeper Ederson to beat after the visitors made an error in defence.

City responded with a Gabriel Jesus header on 78 minutes before they won a penalty after Dani Carvajal fouled Raheem Sterling only for Kevin De Bryune to convert it.

Gabriel beat Ramos in the air to head home De Bruyne’s brilliant cross past Courtois.

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos was shown a straight red card on 86 minutes for hauling down Jesus.

Lucas Vazquez Ramos was shown a straight red card with just minutes left
