Diego Simeone’s side performed with their trademark defensive discipline, restricting the home team Manchester City to very few opportunities. The goal from the Belgium international was the decider as he scored the goal from Phil Foden’s pass with 20 minutes left to play.

Phil Foden, on as a substitute, produced the moment of magic to unlock Atletico with a perfect pass through the legs of Reinaldo for De Bruyne to slot past goalkeeper Jan Oblak. It was the decisive moment in the tightest of games but City manager Pep Guardiola’s wild celebration illustrated just how much it means to take a lead, even if slender, to Madrid for the second leg on 13 April.
