Karim Benzema expertly guided the ball into the far corner to get Real Madrid back into the game, completely against the run of play.
Manchester City were dominating proceedings early, scoring two goals in the first 11 minutes. Real Madrid showed no real signs of getting back into the game, but a Benzema finish gave them a lifeline.
