UWCL highlights: Real Madrid 1-1 City

City kicked-off the 2021/22 campaign with a 1-1 draw against Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Caroline Weir's 47th-minute strike looked to have separated the sides at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano in our season curtain-raiser – a European Round Two first leg clash - but Kenti Robles' injury-time effort salvaged a draw for the hosts in dramatic fashion.

On a balmy night in the Spanish capital, Gareth Taylor’s side – in our first competitive action since May – almost weathered the storm (quite literally) against the European debutants, who were buoyed by a vocal home crowd.

The hosts had missed a penalty and hit the crossbar but made their pressure count in the nick of time with a late rally - a cruel blow to a spirited City side, who fielded three debutants in Vicky LosadaKhadija Shaw and substitute Hayley Raso and welcomed back captain Steph Houghton for the first time since March.
