Real Madrid Beat Manchester City on Penalties to Advance to Champions League Semifinals

Real Madrid emerged victorious over Manchester City in a tightly contested Champions League quarter-final clash, winning 4-3 on penalties after the tie ended 4-4 on aggregate over two legs.

The match saw both teams battle fiercely, with Rodrygo opening the scoring for Real Madrid early in the first half, only for Kevin De Bruyne to equalize for Manchester City in the second half.

The game went into extra time, but neither team could find a winner, leading to a dramatic penalty shootout. Real Madrid goalkeeper Lunin emerged as the hero, saving two of City’s spot-kicks from Silva and Kovacic.

Ederson, who saved Modric’s penalty before scoring his own, couldn’t stop Rudiger’s decisive effort, which sealed Real Madrid’s victory.
