Manchester City’s Champions League dream is over for another year, as Real Madrid set up the second all-Madrid final in three years.
A solitary goal from Gareth Bale gave Madrid the win, and sent them on the road to Milan at the end of the month.
One place more exciting than the Bernabeu was Twitter, as the internet hit top form when Zinedine Zidane trumped Manuel Pellegrini.
Here’s the best of the reaction:
Seeing as though the first leg was less than exciting, the cameramen had their orders to find some good shots:
The cameras didn’t miss Sergio Ramos either, who had a highly questionable haircut:
When the action began, it took just seven minutes for Vincent Kompany to break down injured:

Vincent Kompany is injured so often, I'm surprised he doesn't get stretchered on to the pitch.

Rotten luck for City to lose Kompany and this deflected Gareth Bale goal: https://t.co/3UGDTgl5tg

In one way, City's task doesn't change – they still need a goal and not concede another, to win it. Not that it looks likely. #realvcity

Yaya Toure was taking some flack from the Twittersphere:
Yaya Toure runs like he's just missed the bus and is pretending he didn't really want it anyway.#RealvCity

Yaya Toure appears to be wandering about aimlessly in a garden centre

And Ronaldo didn’t get many nice words when he attempted to throw the ball past Joe Hart:
It wasn’t the best of games, and it was summed up nicely in this tweet:
Proper snoozefest. Best thing about this game is Zizou's new suit #RealvCity

Never mind City, maybe Pep Guardiola can lead you to the Champions League final…
