The 20-year-old Brazilian fired the 13-times European champions into the lead in the 27th minute at the Alfredo di Stefano stadium after controlling a long diagonal pass from Toni Kroos from his own half which flummoxed the Liverpool defence.

Kroos was replaced just before half-time in the 3-2 win away to Real Betis on Saturday and will miss Madrid’s match at home to Real Valladolid on Wednesday night.

Both sides seemed to be holding each other at arms’ length for much of the first half, but Jesus tested Thibaut Courtois after being slipped in by De Bruyne’s incisive pass, before City suffered a major blow as Aymeric Laporte limped off injured

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos admits he’s likely to hang up his boots in just a couple of years’ time.
Kroos has recently signed a new deal to 2023, when he will turn 33 years of age.
