Match Preview: Real, ManCity Qualify For Champs League Semi Final

English giants, Manchester City have qualified for Europe’s elite league’s semifinal for the first time in their history.

Kevin de Bruyne’s excellent goal confirmed Manchester City’s passage into their first ever Champions League semi-final at the expense of French champions Paris Saint Germain.

Sergio Aguero saw his first half penalty go wide after he was brought down by Kevin Trapp in the 30th minute.

In the second game of the night, Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid over turned a two goal deficit to qualify for the semi final stage of the Champions League.

After losing the first leg 2-0 to Wolfsburg, Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hattrick to turn the results.

The prolific Portuguese got the 10-times European champions off to the perfect start by tapping in Daniel Carvajal’s cross after 16 minutes and then headed a second goal less than a minute later from Toni Kroos’ corner.

Ronaldo capped a 3-2 win on aggregate when he curled in a free kick after 77 minutes, his 16th goal in this season’s competition taking him within touching distance of his record of 17 in 2013-14.

It is the sixth successive season that Real have reached the last four.
