Man City suffers through Atletico Madrid to reach the Champions League semi-finals

This was not a classic victory for Manchester City. Technically speaking, Wednesday alone wasn’t a victory at all. But it was nonetheless more valuable for it. There will be talk of a mature European performance, and it may have been. But more than that, it was just a resolute defensive display. For periods in the cauldron of Atlético Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano, especially in the second half, City could not proceed with their passing game, but even without central defender Ruben Dias, he had enough time to equalize 0-0 that managed to qualify ( 1-0 on aggregate) to the Champions League semi-finals, where they will face the power of another Spanish capital, Real Madrid.
