Champions League: Guardiola believes Man City can see off Real Madrid to make more history

Manchester City's Champions League hopes were dashed after a dramatic penalty shootout defeat to Real Madrid.

Bernardo Silva and Mateo Kovacic both left the spot as City were beaten 4-3 on penalties before their thrilling quarter-final tie ended 4-4 on aggregate.

Rodrigo gave Real an early lead in the second leg at the Etihad Stadium, but City otherwise dominated, creating a number of chances and eventually earning a 1-1 draw through Kevin De Bruyne in the 76th minute.

De Bruyne spurned a good chance to win the tie in normal time and Erling Holland hit the crossbar earlier, but it was a tournament-record 14 times that eventually prevailed.

The kings of Europe can reclaim their crown as Man City are denied a double treble

Champions are defeated by kings. Manchester City's reign only lasted a year. Real Madrid, the club Pep Guardiola has long described as the kings of Europe, did what they always do and knocked City out of the continental competition. They found a way.

It took two saves from the goalkeeper, a brilliant back-up move, a haphazard selection of penalty takers and Andriy Lunin, who would have been on the bench if Thibaut Courtois had not suffered cruciate ligament damage or Keba Arrizabalaga had been on the bench.

But Real, buffeted but not defeated, defiant but not defeated, found a way past Guardiola's wishes. Now Bayern look forward to the semi-final against Munich. Now a 15th European Cup can be made a fifth in Carlo Ancelotti's extraordinary career.

Ruben Diaz spoke to TNT Sports

“I don't know what to say. It's frustrating – we dominated the whole game, we had chances, but it's difficult to take them. The way we control the game, we always try to do everything we can to avoid going for penalties because, in a sense, that's what they wanted.

„We had chances – sometimes the ball goes in, sometimes it doesn't, but now we have to look forward to what's to come this season.”

Bellingham's Other Works

“Our biggest strength is Carlo Ancelotti. He found a way to let a lot of boys play freely. We are very far away. As a man, he fills you with peace and hope. I caught myself yawning and he told me to go out and cheer him up.

„Moments like this are magic and it comes down to the mindset: when you get those details right, when you get those little moments, like penalties, when the boys are cool. It's magic. It's been beautiful; my brother is here today, I I was really proud to see him play for Madrid for the first time.”

Jude Bellingham speaks to TNT Sports

„It's a relief because you get into the game so much. I've played against City when you're close and you think you're going to get something and then they take it away from you. You have to work hard to beat them. Winning the game was a huge reward.

They constantly probe with the ball, they move you around and get you into positions you don't want to go into, but if you don't they can punish you and they hit the target. Most teams would crumble but we stood up well and worked hard.

Early in his career at Real Madrid: „I could never have dreamed of a start like this. Not just the performances, but the feeling of playing for the club. You're so grateful to have the badge on your chest. I hope there are many more nights like this.
