Real Madrid played their part in a Champions League classic as they were beaten 4-3 by Manchester City in the first leg of their semi-final.
The 13-time winners had done things the hard way in their victories over PSG and Chelsea in previous rounds
And they were forced to fight back from behind again after City stormed into a 2-0 lead at the Etihad Stadium.
Karim Benzema got Real back in contention before half-time, but City restored their two-goal lead through Phil Foden.
Vinicius Junior then dribbled half the length of the field to score Real's second.
These two teams will face off in the second leg in Madrid next Wednesday.
Thibaut Courtois - 5/10- Had been among his side's top performers to help them get to this stage, but there were no heroics from the former Chelsea keeper this time around.
Dani Carvajal - 5/10 Produced a superb goal-line clearance but was caught out of position multiple times and it cost Real dearly.
