Cristiano Ronaldo was missing from the Real Madrid squad that faced Manchester City in the first Champions League semi-final - but City couldn't capitalise on his absence in the 0-0 draw.
The former Manchester United star missed the weekend victory over Rayo Vallecano with a thigh injury, but trained with his team-mates on the eve of the match and looked set to feature in the first leg. But he was not in the squad at the Etihad Stadium.
And as both teams played cautiously for most of the game, fans were missing a bit of attacking Ronaldo spark.
This games just crying out for Ronaldo

Zidane has a massive hole on his trousers. Not as big as the hole RM have got in attack without Ronaldo.

Chances came for Real Madrid in the last 15 minutes with Gareth Bale finally causing problems for City and Pepe forcing a magnificent save by Joe Hart at 82 minutes.
There was only on moment of quality through out the entire match. And it was Joe Hart's save. #MCFCvsRM

And Vincent Kompany was solid and influential once again.
Kompany is one of the best defenders out there. So influential ?? #MCFCvsRM
