Man City fans send message: In the decisive second half of Manchester City’s Champions League semi-final at the Bernabeu, De Bruyne scored.
Following the superstar’s equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal, Manchester City supporters have been gushing about Kevin De Bruyne.
The playmaker scored on 67 minutes to offset Vinicius Junior’s goal in the first half. Thibaut Courtois had no chance as the Belgian slammed the ball home from 25 yards out with a thunderbolt-like strike.
Like Madrid’s in the opening frame, the goal was scored against the flow of play in the second half. In anticipation of the second leg at the Etihad on Wednesday, Pep Guardiola will be thrilled with the outcome.
Vinicius Jr.’s thunderbolt from the first half at the Santiago Bernabeu was matched by De Bruyne’s rocket past international teammate Thibaut Courtois.
Man City fans send message:
However, the equaliser was clouded in doubt when Bernardo Silva reached for Kyle Walker’s slightly overhit pass on the right wing during the buildup, and it appeared that the ball had left the pitch.
Carlo Ancelotti quickly raised an objection and was given a warning for losing his composure on the sidelines.
De Bruyne missed the Premier League victories against Fulham and West Ham due to a leg injury, but he came back to play against Leeds in the 2-1 victory on Saturday. After making his season debut against Madrid, he now has 10 goals after scoring at the Bernabeu.
De Bruyne’s long-range shot delighted City supporters, who praised their player on Twitter. While some hailed him as the greatest player of all time, others expressed their appreciation for the fact that he plays for the Blues.
