Sensational City set to break the curse

By Razeen Gutta

Manchester City are through to the Uefa Champions League final as Real Madrid crash out, and how!

Pep Guardiola’s side cruised past the 14-time European champions with a 4-0 rout at the Etihad to progress 5-1 on aggregate.

Bernardo Silva got the ball running midway through the first half, becoming the third player to score two goals in a Champions League semi-final against Los Blancos, after Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski in 2011 and 2013.

City dominated the ball and created more chances, making the most of the home advantage with a blue moon and magical atmosphere watching over the Premier League leaders.

Star midfielder Kevin de Bruyne forced a deflection from Eder Militao from a free kick to make it three, picking up his second assist of the night, as the Cityzens continued their demolition.

World champion Julian Alvarez would make his presence felt as he eyes an extraordinary quadruple of trophies this season.

The Argentine scored off the bench in stoppage time to bring an end to one of the most magnificent Manchester evenings.

City will head into the final looking to become European champions for the very first time when they take on Inter Milan in Istanbul next month.
