Manchester [UK], April 6 : Kevin De Bruyne scored the only goal to give Manchester City a slender first-leg win against a typically stubborn Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final between the champions of England and Spain on Tuesday. City dominated possession in the first half - with 70 per cent of the ball - but neither side registered an effort on target in the opening period at the Etihad Stadium.

The home team had more clear chances after the break, De Bruyne's free-kick stopped by Jan Oblak, who then cleared the loose ball with Rodri closing in, before Aymeric Laporte headed over from a corner. Both sides made a triple substitution and City's had an instant impact as one of the replacements, Phil Foden, immediately played in De Bruyne for the opener.
