Manchester City beat Real Madrid 2-1 in first leg of Champions League tie 

By our correspondent 

Manchester City scored two late goals five minutes apart to beat Real Madrid 2-1 in the first leg of the last 16 in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Francisco Isco put the Blancos ahead in the 60th minute after a mistake by Man City midfielder Rodri.
Gabriel Jesus evened the match with a header in the 78th and Kevin De Bruyne scored the winner by converting an 83rd minute penalty after a foul by Dani Carvajal on Raheem Sterling.
Madrid played the final minutes without defender Sergio Ramos after he was shown a red card for a foul to stop an 86th-minute breakaway by Jesus.
The return match in England will be on March 17.
UEFA recently handed Man City a ban from European competitions for the next two seasons after a panel found that it had seriously breached financial regulations and failed to co-operate with investigators.
The club filed an appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, but if the punishment stands, City will not play the Champions League until the 2022-23 season.
