As the day drew to a close, some went crying but some went proud like lions as group D wrapped up on match-day 5.
Many visited the Etihad today including Sir Alex, to watch the long-awaited game. 10 minutes in and Benzema attacks a di Maria cross to finish coolly in the bottom corner. As the half progressed, Ronaldo made himself a chance but his cheeky chip was cleared off the line by Pablo Zabaleta. Later on Khedira was also through on goal but was stopped by Joe Hart.
City made a few chances but were unable to capitalize as they went at the break dissapointed. A yellow card to Yaya Toure, and he is now suspended for the final group stage game against Dortmund.
As the game resumed, City fought hard but were again, unable to finish. About 17 minutes from time Arbeloa slipped in his own area and Sergio Aguero took advantage to earn a penalty. Picking up his second yellow, Arbeloa was sent off. Sergio equalized as he took the penalty but it was not enough to see them through to the knockout stages.
Now they will have to bring a result against Dormund if they want to compete in the Europa League.
