Man City and Haaland avoid scare ahead of Real Madrid clash

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — It could be just the wake up call Manchester City and Erling Haaland needed before the Champions League semifinals against Real Madrid. The Norwegian goal machine has barely put a foot wrong this season. But against Leeds he allowed himself a moment of indulgence and the defending English Premier League champions might have paid the price. Leading 2-0 at Etihad Stadium on Saturday Haaland passed up the chance to score a late penalty by handing over duties to Ilkay Gundogan. Gundogan hit the post and Leeds scored a minute later. City won 2-1 but against Real Madrid such lapses in judgement could prove much more costly.
