Real Madrid take point from Champions League opponents Man City

Real Madrid secured a 1-1 draw at Champions League opponents Manchester City last night.

City manager Roberto Mancini was again left to rue a costly decision to deploy a three-man defence as the Spanish giants tore into the hosts in the early stages.

Karim Benzema struck and Real should have had more in a devastating spell but City grew in confidence after switching formations and Sergio Aguero levelled from the spot after Alvaro Arbeloa was sent off.

City poured forward in search of a winner in the closing stages but it was not to be and the result leaves them with just three points in Group D and unable to progress.
