One of those away defeats came in last year’s Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid, in which City conceded three goals in the 90+ minute before failing to come out (6-5) on aggregate.
It is not surprising that given this result, the Manchester club have a disappointing record against Spanish teams in this competition, failing to win 55% of their meetings.
