Man City in Historic Defeat of Madrid As Lyon Beat Juve

 

 

 Lyon Vs Juventus, 1-0

Lyon goal scorer, Lucas Tousart is feted by team mates

 

The host team all dressed in white were all over the pitch with the kick-off whistle. And by the 32nd min, they registered a deserved goal. It was all down to a solo run by Hossem Auoar down the left flank before he swept the ball into the six-yard box which Lucas Tousart, anticipating him,  rushed into and smashed the ball into the top corner. The Italian giants  pulled all the stops and in the dying minutes got a goal through Paulo Dybala but it was ruled out, leaving a rugged Lyon’s defence to up their game and keep the determined Juve at bay.

 

Real Madrid Vs Man City, 1-2

Jesus heads in the equaliser for ManCity

 

Madrid was lucky to have escaped the first half without a goal from the visiting Mancity which took time to absorb the futile efforts that saw three weak attempts at goal.  On resumption of play in the second half, Madrid piled up pressure which gave them the opening goal scored in the 61st min by an unmarked Isco in the box after receiving  a pass from Vinicus who intercepted a failed Walker clearance.

Gabriel Jesus, with a De Bruyne assist,  replied with a header for the visitors to draw level in the 79th min. Then in the 83 rd min, the tireless De Bruyne, firing his side which had continued to push Madrid to the defence, got a penalty from a Dani Carvajal foul on Raheem Sterling in the  box and Bruyne converted it from the spot to make it 2, sending Courtois the wrong way. Then captain, Ramos os red carded in the 89th min for pulling goal bound Jesus. This win is historic because Man City have never beaten Real Madrid. And it is the first time Zidane is suffering a League Knockout round as Madrid boss
