This tie is far from over!

THREE MINUTES ADDED ON
REAL MADRID SUB
Marcos Ascensio comes on for Vinicius Jnr.
Benzema rolls it to Vinicius Jnr on the left but he leans back and fires it over the bar.
WATCH: BENZEMA'S PANENKA
What audacity to even attempt this in a Champions League semi-final!
Mahrez's curler is flicked on by Sterling and Diaz just cannot make the finishing touch at the far post!
And it should be noted that Fernandinho was booked for arguing about the penalty decision.
MAN CITY SUB
Sterling comes on for Sterling for the last seven minutes of normal time.

Another twist in this pulsating game!
REAL MADRID SUB
Modric makes way for Ceballos.
CLOSE FROM MODRIC!
Almost a moment of magic from Modric! He skips past Rodri and drags a shot just wide. Ederson was at full stretch!
WHAT A GOAL THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN!
Mahrez is a whisker away from making it five! He dances his way into the penalty area, riding a number of challenges and he almost has the finish to match, flashing a shot inches past the post!
GOAL! MAN CITY 4-2 REAL MADRID (BERNARDO SILVA)
What a huge moment this could be in the tie!
Credit must go to the referee as he plays an advantage for a foul on Zinchenko, Bernado takes control and lashes a shot into the top corner. Courtois is rooted to the spot!
