The rematch between Manchester City and Real Madrid opened at a murderous pace and in complete control of the English, who want to oust the European champions, perhaps on the way to their first win in the factory. After two huge saves by Thibaut Courtois, the long-awaited goal for Pep Guardiola arrived, at the end of a wonderful team move by the Blues.
In fact, thanks to his brace tonight, Silva became the third player in history to score two or more goals in a Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid. The first to do so were Leo Messi (2011) and Robert Lewandowski (2013).
Silva’s last nine goals in the Champions League have all been scored in the factory knockout stage. The victims are – Schalke, Tottenham, Monchengladbach, Sporting, Bayern and Real Madrid. By the way, three of his last four goals in the factory were scored against the Blancos.
Bernardo has a total of 14 goals in the Champions League throughout his career – ten of them in the knockout stages. By the way, with the help of the Portuguese duo, he raised his career tally to 90 goals in total, when in Manchester City’s uniform he celebrated 55 times.
