Kevin De Bruyne’s second half strike secured a vital 1-0 victory for Manchester City over Atletico Madrid in a tense Champions League quarter-final first leg at the Etihad on Tuesday evening.

There was nothing to separate the two teams until De Bruyne, assisted by Phil Foden with his first touch off the bench, buried the ball past Jan Oblak to put City in control ahead of the return leg in the Spanish capital next week.

In the second half, the intensity gauge was ramped up. With twenty minutes to play, substitute Foden picked the lock with his first touch, feeding De Bruyne who coolly slotted the ball past Oblak into the bottom corner, a decisive goal which gives City the advantage heading into the second leg.

City entered Tuesday as the favorite to win the tournament and showed why once again with a strong performance against a tough opponent. Both clubs are seeking their first European championship despite past trips to the UCL finals.

Taking to Twitter, Manchester City fans celebrated their hard-fought yet thrilling win over Atletico Madrid.

“A deserved win but silly bookings for Jesus and Ederson. Atletico must really fear Grealish they way they charged at him, he should start the second leg and get an Atleti player sent off !.”
