Real Madrid are on the brink of elimination from the Champions League.
Having played out a tense 70 minutes with both sides having decent but not brilliant chances throughout, Manchester City struck first.
With Los Blancos pushing for the aggregate equaliser, Manchester City played out of the pressure and released Bernardo Silva into the Real Madrid half with space. His run to the edge of the box and laying off to the right, Riyad Mahrez hammered the ball in at the near post first time.

That leaves Real Madrid just 10 minutes to grab two goals and send the match to extra time. Although they have excelled at remarkable comebacks in the Champions League so far, this might be their toughest assignment yet.
