Real Madrid picked up the point they needed to make it through to the knock-out stage after drawing 1-1 with Manchester City on Wednesday evening. Benzema gave Mourinho's side an early lead, losing his marker Maicon before sweeping Di María's cross past Joe Hart from close to goal. And they could have gone further ahead later on in the first half, Khedira going close a couple of times and Ronaldo lobbing the keeper only for Nastasic to clear the ball off the line. Casillas only had one real save to make before the break, pushing Aguero's effort over the crossbar, but twenty minutes in to the second half he made the stop of the night, again from Aguero at point blank range. Ronaldo replied with a shot from outside of the area which caused Hart some problems, but a few minutes later Aguero fell under a challenge from Arbeloa in the area, and Italian referee Gianluca Rocchi awarded a penalty to City and showed a second yellow card to the full back. Aguero converted the spot-kick himself, and with the Premier League side needing a win to stay in the competition, Mancini threw everything forward. Mourinho closed ranks though to hold on to the draw, and with Borussia Dortmund taking Ajax out of the equation as well in the other group game, Madrid are now sure to finish second in group D whatever the outcome in the last round of matches.
