Guillem Balague has reacted on Twitter to Manchester City’s draw with Real Madrid.

The two sides met in the Champions League semi final on Tuesday evening, as they both looked to secure a positive result ahead of the second leg.

Indeed, defence ruled the evening as they played out a 0-0 draw, with Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart producing two big saves to ensure his side kept a clean sheet.

Crucially that meant Madrid do not have any away goals to take into the return leg, a big bonus for City, and Balague says that Manuel Pellegrini’s side will be the happier with the result.

He was not the only one to tweet on the result either, as former Manchester City stars David James and Michael Ball also shared their opinion on the result.

The 0-0 draw certainly sets up a fascinating second leg clash at the Bernabeu, with the tie firmly in the balance.

At present Real Madrid are arguably slight favourites to go through to the final, although much will rest on if they can get Cristiano Ronaldo fit.
