MANCHESTER CITY - REAL MADRID

Cristiano Ronaldo's 7 strokes of genius against Man City

The Portuguese hitman revelled in distressing the Sky Blues during his Man United playing days. Here's a look at seven of his works of art against the noisy neighbours.

Back when Cristiano Ronaldo was still distressing Premier League defenders on a weekly basis with Manchester United, the Sky Blues had not yet morphed into the European heavyweights they are now.

The Portuguese wonder kid was a constant thorn in the Citizens’ side whenever the two clubs met and he will be eager to dip into his bag of tricks against his one-time noisy neighbours once again when Real Madrid visit the Etihad for the first time since November 2012.

Los Blancos faced Man City in the group stages of the 2012/13 Champions League, drawing 1-1 with the then Roberto Mancini-managed side at the Etihad.
