Alf-Inge Haaland, father of Manchester City striker Erling Haaland, was escorted out of a VIP box at the Bernabeu after confronting Real Madrid fans during City's Champions League semi-final draw. Alf-Inge was filmed goading spectators in front of him and was accused of throwing peanuts at fans, which he denies. Despite being expertly marshalled by the defending champions, Erling was unable to score.
Guardiola may make adjustments ahead of the second leg, as he looks to involve his star striker more often. Carlo Ancelotti, Madrid's boss, expressed fury over City's equalizer due to Bernardo Silva potentially controlling the ball off the pitch during the build-up.
