Kevin De Bruyne‘s hard free kick has given hosts Manchester City a 2-1 lead over visiting Barcelona in UEFA Champions League play on Tuesday.

Pep Guardiola‘s City has been very good in the match, and could’ve led early when Raheem Sterling was adjudged to have dived inside the 18.

Lionel Messi made it 1-0 soon after, but Ilkay Gundogan and De Bruyne have now scored to put City on top in the 50th minute.

Barcelona keeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen absolutely should’ve done better with the shot, but credit to KDB for the big rip.
