Gabriel Jesus pounced on some poor defending to give Manchester City a 2-0 lead in the Champions League semi-final.
Real Madrid failed to clear a Kevin De Bruyne cross, and Jesus was there to pounce and slot the ball past the goalkeeper. The goal doubled City’s lead early on in the game, giving Real Madrid a mountain to climb.

The two goals would have completely ripped apart Carlo Ancelotti’s game plan, who undoubtedly wanted to keep it tight for as long as possible and go into the second leg with a fighting chance.
