Manchester City put in an impressive second-half performance to breeze past Real Madrid 4-1 in the International Champions Cup in Los Angeles early on Thursday morning.
Nicolas Otamendi gave City the lead (52) from close range in a game full of chances, before Raheem Sterling doubled their lead with a low finish from Kevin De Bruyne’s pass (59).
John Stones added a third (66) as Man City turned on the style in LA, before substitute Brahim Diaz made it 4-0 with a superb strike (81).
Pep Guardiola handed new signing Danilo his Manchester City debut against his former club, while Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema started for Real Madrid at the Coliseum.
The first half was a tale of two goalkeepers, with Ederson making the first save of note by tipping away Isco’s curling effort from just outside the box.
Keylor Navas then denied Gabriel Jesus with his feet on 25 minutes, and the Real stopper pulled off another world-class stop from point-blank range as Sergio Aguero found acres of space in the penalty area.
Real then hit the post through Casemiro with a back-post header from Isco’s cross, before Benzema’s effort from an angle was turned away by Ederson again.
