Champions League Review: Madrid edge City in thriller, Arsenal & PSG win
It was another night of sensational Champions League action on Tuesday. At the Santiago Bernabeu, where the tie of the day was played, Real Madrid came from behind twice to defeat Manchester City 3-2.
City took the lead, after Edin Dzeko burst through to calmly slot the ball past Casillas. Marcelo made it 1-1, after his effort was deflected over Joe Hart. Kolarov swung in a delicious free kick to give the English Champions the lead, but Benzema restored parity almost immediately. It was Cristiano Ronaldo, who popped up in the dying seconds to score the winner and spark wild celebrations inside the stadium.
Arsenal continued their impressive start to the season, as they also came from behind to beat Montpellier 2-1. The Gunners went behind to an early Belhanda penalty, but Podolski and Gervinho found the back of the net to give the London team the lead. And although the French Champions tried to fight back in the second half, the match was played a lower tempo.
