Manchester City came from behind to grab a priceless 2-1 victory over ten-man Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash.
The hosts were in control with 12 minutes remaining thanks to Isco’s strike, before two goals and a red card turned the clash on its head.
De Bruyne created one and scored the other
Gabriel Jesus gave the visitors a priceless away goal on 78 minutes and things got even better when substitute Raheem Sterling was sent tumbling in the box by Dani Carvajal.
Kevin de Bruyne tucked away the resulting penalty to complete City’s stunning turnaround, as Madrid well and truly crumbled in front of their home fans.
To make matters worse, captain Sergio Ramos was sent off for a trip on Jesus, with the Brazilian bearing down on goal.
The result means Madrid need to score at least twice when they visit the Etihad on March 17.
Madrid will be without Ramos, while City could be without Aymeric Laporte, who provided the one negative for Pep Guardiola by limping off injured.
