Manchester City are tearing Real Madrid to shreds in the Champions League, they are cooking

We have just witnessed a mauling. Manchester City are 45 minutes away from a Champions League final against Inter Milan after blowing Real Madrid away in the second leg of Wednesday night’s semi-final.

It was a breathtaking start to the game from Pep Guardiola’s in-form side, who dominated for large spells in the opening period.

Los Blancos, meanwhile, struggled to keep hold of the ball. In fact, with 22 minutes played, the away side had only mustered 26 accurate passes compared to City’s 180.

And moments later, the brilliant Bernardo Silva opened the scoring with a powerful effort as a bemused Vinicius Jr expressed his concerns to manager Carlo Ancelotti. How good was this?

City, who have been relentless throughout this season’s Champions League campaign, continued to make Madrid look distinctly average.

And 14 minutes after his opener, Silva grabbed a well-deserved brace with a cushioned header past a helpless Thibaut Courtois.

One fan commented on the goal, saying: “Bernardo Silva is one of the best big-game players you will ever find. That is a such a difficult header, empty net or not. E l i t e.”

A second wrote: “Manchester City have been different gravy this first half. Outstanding,” while a third said: “Unbelievable squad. Nobody comes close to them.”

A fourth added: “That was one of the most complete 45 minute performances I can ever remember seeing.”

Thoughts on that first-half?
