Manchester City earned a dramatic 2-1 win over 10-man Real Madrid on Wednesday in the first leg of the 2020 UEFA Champions League last 16 at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Isco broke the deadlock for Real on 59 minutes after multiple errors in City's defence, with the goal coming against the run of play.

City composed themselves and produced a comeback when Gabriel Jesus headed home an equaliser with 12 minutes to spare.

Dani Carvajal then brought down Raheem Sterling in the box for an 83rd-minute penalty, with Kevin De Bruyne making no mistake from the spot.
