Champions League: Manchester City Win, Real Madrid-PSG Draw
Kevin De Bruyne netted stoppage-time winner as Manchester City came from behind to beat Sevilla 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium in the Champions League on Wednesday. Sevilla’s Yevhen Konoplyanka scored in the first half before City drew level before half-time courtesy of an Adil Rami own goal.Advertisement
Meanwhile, Manchester United finished with a 1-1 draw against CSKA Moscow at the Arena Khimki after conceding an early goal. French teenager Anthony Martial conceded a first-half penalty but returned to salvage pride in the second half with fine header to help United draw level. “In the first half we could not play in a higher tempo because it was too slow in my opinion and that’s what I said at half time that we had to improve,” United manager Louis van Gaal said after the game.
The most anticipated clash of the night, between Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, ended in a tame 0-0 draw as superstars Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo failed to make an impact. “Perhaps we lacked a bit of sharpness up front but we leave here happy to have picked up a point from a difficult ground,” Madrid captain Sergio Ramos said after the game. Despite the result, both teams comfortably sit atop of Group A with seven points each.
While Atletico Madrid, Wolfsburg and Galatasaray all won their fixtures, the match between Juventus and Borussia Monchengladbach also ended with a 0-0 draw.
