Real Madrid and Manchester City had an exciting match in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg, which ended in a 3-3 draw.

City started strong, with Bernardo Silva scoring in just two minutes, catching the Madrid goalkeeper off guard with a long-range free kick.

However, Madrid quickly responded with two goals in two minutes. First, Eduardo Camavinga‘s shot deflected off Ruben Dias and went in, then Vinicius Junior set up Rodrygo for a brilliant second goal. This gave Madrid the lead at half-time.

Pep Guardiola made some adjustments that helped City have more control in the second half.

Two amazing goals from Phil Foden and Josko Gvardiol gave them a 3-2 lead. Both goals were scored from outside the box, showing how well the visitors were playing.

However, Madrid is a strong team and Federico Valverde’s powerful shot resulted in a late equalizer, leaving the teams tied going into next week’s second leg in Manchester.
