Manchester City produced a stunning comeback to overturn a 1-0 deficit and beat Real Madrid 2-1 in the first leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday.

Madrid pounced on sloppy play at the back to spring a quick counter, before Isco applied the finishing touch on the hour mark to put Los Blancos ahead, but quickfire goals from Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne put City on their way to a famous win. The action wasn’t done there, as Sergio Ramos brought Jesus down as the Brazilian raced through on goal and was sent off in the 86th minute, meaning he will miss the second leg at the Etihad.

Heads could well have dropped after they went behind — arguably against the run of play — but De Bruyne grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck in the final 15 minutes and inspired a comeback that will go down in City folklore.

Pep Guardiola’s side had a tough time working their way through Madrid’s high press in the first half, with the ball regularly finding its way back to the hosts, and questions will also be asked about the opener, with a comedy of errors gifting Real the lead.
