Foden's stunning strike salvages draw for Manchester City against Real Madrid in Champions League clash

Posted : 10 April 2024

In a scintillating Champions League quarterfinal clash at the Santiago Bernabeu, Phil Foden's sensational strike stole the spotlight, as Manchester City battled to a thrilling 3-3 draw against Real Madrid. Foden's sublime goal, rocketed into the top corner, restored parity at 2-2 in the second half, setting the stage for an enthralling second leg at the Etihad Stadium on April 17th.


Despite Josko Gvardiol and Federico Valverde's blistering goals for Real Madrid, Manchester City remains buoyed by their formidable home record in the Champions League. Pep Guardiola's side boasts an unbeaten streak of 30 home games in the competition since 2018, including impressive victories over Madrid in the past two seasons, where they scored four goals on both occasions.


The clash also saw a dramatic escape for Jude Bellingham from a potential suspension, with the young midfielder lucky to avoid a booking that would have ruled him out of the second leg. While Foden's brilliance shone through with his crucial goal, Manchester City had to adapt to the absence of Kevin De Bruyne, who fell ill just before kickoff, highlighting the team's ability to navigate unforeseen challenges at the highest level.


Foden's emergence as a pivotal figure for Manchester City and potentially for England, amidst competition from rising stars like Bellingham, underscores his growing influence in both club and international football. Guardiola acknowledges Foden's exceptional talent and versatility, with the 23-year-old poised to play a crucial role in City's pursuit of Champions League glory and England's aspirations at Euro 2024.
