Vinicius Junior and Kevin De Bruyne traded magnificent goals as Real Madrid and Manchester City drew 1-1 in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.

City had dominated the early stages of the match only to concede from Madrid's only shot of the first half, a stunning strike from Vinicius that seemed to unnerve Pep Guardiola's side.

But midway through the second half, just when Madrid were pushing for their second goal, De Bruyne silenced the Bernabeu with a vicious hit of his own from distance.

There was no late sting in the tale as there had been for City in this stadium in last season's semi-final and they will be optimistic about the prospect of completing the job at the Etihad Stadium next week.
