Four goals in the last half hour as Real’s warm-up

An own goal from Luton’s Daiki Hashioka broke the knot for them in the second minute. The “Citizens” subsequently created a number of chances, but failed to decide the game in the first half. That happened after over an hour when Mateo Kovacic (64th) and Erling Haaland increased with a penalty (76th). After Ross Barkley’s consolation goal (81′), Jeremy Doku (87′) and Josko Gvardiol (90’+3) made the final score.

Manchester was able to secure a safe and problem-free victory – the perfect preparation for the second leg against Real Madrid. On Wednesday (April 17th, 2024) it will be about progressing in the Champions League in our own stadium after a 3-3 draw at the Bernabeu.
