Real Madrid face off with Manchester City With a 0-0 goal-less draw in the first leg of their 2016 UEFA champions League semifinal at Etihad Stadium this Tuesday night and it turned out to be a very tight and competitive game between the two sides. Madrid lost Ronaldo before the kickoff as he failed to pass fitness test and Man City dominated the game without really troubling Keylor Navas. The game was 0-0 at the break and both sides looked happy even if the score stays the same and thats how the game ended with a 0-0 draw and both teams have all to do in return leg in a weeks time.
Ronaldo less Real Madrid looked nervous in the opening exchanges but they kept City’s front trio pretty much in check and never gave them any clear opportunity at goal. Sergio Ramos and Pepe both used their physical presence and frustrated Man City with some hard tackles throughout the first half.
Gareth Bale looked like the only threat Real madrid posed for best part of first hour while Benzema and Lucas Vazquez struggled to impose themselves on the game.
The best chance of the game fell to Pepe who was in acres of space inside the box when a ball fell for him nicely and his left footed strike was straight at City’s goalkeeper Joe Hart who made himself big to keep the game at 0-0.
Let’s see what would happen in the second leg of their 2016 UEFA champions League semifinal…
