  • Full time. That's the final whistle. Dramatic second half with five goals and Cristiano Ronaldo has the last word. City looked on the brink of a famous win but Real turned it around in the last few minutes to break the visitors hearts. Harsh Champions League lesson.

  • Ahead for the first time, Real are happy to control possession now.

  • There will be three minutes of added time.

  • Ronaldo cuts in from the left and fires a dipping shot on goal. It's near to Hart but seems to baffle him and he reacts late. Poor keeping really after an impressive night but it looks like Ronaldo will be the hero.

  • Goal! Cristiano Ronaldo with (surely) the winner in the last minute!

  • Dzeko booked for handball.

  • Ronaldo looking for a winner now and he shoots to Hart's right but the keeper is up to the challenge and pushes it away.

  • The French striker turns on the edge of the box and fires a shot low past Hart into the bottom corner.

  • Goal! Karim Benzema with an equaliser!

  • Benzema fouls Zabaleta and it's another chance for City to cross. Kolarov swings it in from the right and there's a slight touch from Alonso to deflect it past Casillas. What a night this could be for City now!

  • Goal! Aleksandr Kolarov goes all the way through and curls into the far corner!

  • Modric with a clumsy challenge on Tevez on the box and that was close to a penalty... Dzeko then shepherds the ball out for a corner. Ronaldo wins the header to clear.

  • Kolarov wins a corner thanks to a surging run down the left.

  • Modric with a controlled shot from distance but it's too close to Hart and he catches.

  • Dzeko nearly gets on the end of a simple ball in the inside left channel. Another reminder that he could be a threat late on.

  • Di Maria puts a cross in and Ozil looks to have stolen a yard at the near post but Nastasic does well to block. Then Benzema has a go from a tight angle and Hart saves. When it comes out to Alonso from distance Hart holds on to the shot. Dramatic stuff!

  • City a serious threat on the break but you sense they'll have plenty of defending to do now. Marcelo getting involved more and more going forward.

  • Tevez gets away to the byline and puts the ball across the area but it sails harmlessly through. Chance gone but end-to-end now.

  • Marcelo cuts in on his right foot this time and puts a ball high over Hart into the roof of the net from a deflection ogff Garcia

  • Goal! Marcelo with a long shot that he gets right!
