Real Madrid and Manchester City saw the faces in the Champions League, and in an animated duel imposed the English. It cost to park the respect that had both and begin to see real fire in Santiago Bernabéu, but after a first-half with scarce clear occasions -although there were them-, arrived the goals and the action to an eliminatory that, in spite of the advantage visitor, will resolve in the Etihad Stadium.

One of the big triunfadores of the crash was Pep Guardiola, that went back to impose in the coliseo white to his style. Ready they were to cost him expensive the atrevimientos to the 'citizen', but this time the technician learnt of tropiezos past and no descosió in front of a rival that also put of his part, because it seemed too tired as to plant him expensive or upset him already when the marker gave the turn.

Far to pose an open party, the Catalan preferred to mature it through a very delivered possession. 53% to 47% of the first 45 minutes left step to a 47-53 in the seconds, for a 50-50 in the global. The problem is that without a guide like Toni Kroos, the spark of Vinicius was not sufficient for ones, and the excellent performance of Kevin Of Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus and the help of Riyad Mahrez himself sufficed for the others.

The plan of the ex of the FC Barcelona wobbled when his pupilos hit a shot in the foot, since Rodri failed in the exit of balloon and, after the touch of Luka Modric, Kyle Walker was not able to keep the position and block to the own Vinicius. The Brazilian, that before had forgiven an only opportunity, resarció giving him the 1-0 to Isco, that appeared by the central lane entirely free of mark and could annotate.

But to the Madrid were missing him energies to hurt to the against and the City went back to grow until finding the traced back and do blood. During some instants seemed that the charged of Of Bruyne and Gabriel were too isolated, but the errors 'merengues' collaborated and the 'sky blues' showed that, with the balloon in the feet, knew how, where and to which intensity attack, what tieed up a very valuable triumph.

Guardiola Is a nightmare in Santiago Bernabéu

Although him escoció a thump with the Bayern of Munich, Guardiola is a nightmare for the Real Madrid in the Bernabéu. In a total of nine visits, has harvested six victories, two ties and a defeat, the one who carried in the campaign 2013-14 with the Bavarians. Never it lost with the Barcelona in his trips to measure to his rival maximum, and neither has done it in his première with the Manchester City, that this Wednesday did a bit more greater in Europe, just when more loomed is.
