Manchester City beat Real Madrid 4-1 in the ICC Tournament in front of a record crowd at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

After a goalless first half, Nicolas Otamendi, Raheem Sterling, John Stones and Brahim Diaz scored the goals to put Pep Guardiola’s team in charge against the Champions League winners.

Real scored a consolation through Oscar in the last minute of a match watched by a crowd of 93,098, a record attendance for football at the venue.

Guardiola praised his players for their performance.

The City manager, in quotes carried on the club’s Twitter account, said: “The result is not so important but the way we fought for each other is.

“I’m proud of the way my team fought together.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane was disappointed with the result but vowed not to dwell on it too much.

Speaking on the club’s website, he said: “I’m not happy about the loss, of course. We did not play a bad game but it is a bad result.

“We are in preparation, it is the second game. No more talk about what has happened, we lose and that’s it.”
