City bow out of Europe as Bale sends Real into Champions League final against Atleti

Disappointing evening for City at the Bernabeu as their European campaign came to an end following a narrow loss to Real Madrid at the Bernabeu. Gareth Bale scored Real’s opener (their only goal of the game), which was later credited as an own goal by Fernando.

City lost talismanic captain Vincent Kompany to injury within the first ten minutes and struggled to impose themselves on the game. Yaya Toure was outshone by Modric in midfield and the Croatian and Dani Carvajal repeatedly carved holes in City’s passive defence.
