Man City 0 Real Madrid 0: Pellegrini’s men miss chance to hurt under-strength Spaniards

It was chess-like at times, with precious few thrills, although Joe Hart was the hero again in the 82nd minute.

He blocked Pepe at point-blank range after he slammed a shot at goal when a Toni Kroos corner was flicked onto him by Gareth Bale’s head.

The England keeper was superb against Paris, but this was a truly sensational stop.

Ex-Manchester United star Ronaldo was booed when his he was pictured in the tunnel on the big screens before kick-off.

But on the pitch, it was a slow, careful start.

“It is maybe the most important game that this club has played in its history,” Pellegrini said.
