couldn't take advantage of two goal differences with them to Madrid for the second leg.

"For the fans watching it was obviously a great game of football,"

Foden said to BT Sport.

"We are playing a side that has won the Champions League many times, and if we give the ball away they are going to punish us.

"It is something we need to work on in the second leg. The tie is still on. It was a great game, end to end. We started really well and could have killed them off. In these games, we need to take more chances.”

Bernardo Silva adds:

“The first 20 minutes we were so, so good. Over the 90 minutes, it feels we could have won with a better score. But we were not able to take advantage of our two-goal differences, which we had three times.

But that’s the Champions League and it’s still a good score for us, one more goal than them. Our fans should be proud of us. It’s true we could have scored more, but that’s football.”

The return leg will be next Wednesday at the Bernabeu.
