The first leg of the Champions League semifinal between Manchester City and Real Madrid ended in a tie thanks to a magnificent equaliser from Kevin De Bruyne for the Citizens.
In the 67th minute, with City behind 1-0, Rodri won possession for his team well outside the Madrid penalty area and passed the ball to Jack Grealish.
Thibaut Courtois had no chance when the Englishman passed the ball to De Bruyne, who blasted it into the bottom left corner.
