Silva struck twice in the first half as Man City produced a sensational performance to dethrone holders Real Madrid and reach the Champions League final.
Militao also turned into his net and Alvarez added another late on as City claimed a comprehensive 4-0 win at the Etihad Stadium to power into next month’s Istanbul showpiece 5-1 on aggregate.
City’s victory was every bit as comprehensive as the scoreline suggests with the 14-time European champions struggling to live with the pace and movement of Guardiola’s mesmeric side.
Kroos did hit the woodwork at 1-0, but it was a rare bright moment from a Real team that was simply overwhelmed. It was sweet revenge for City after defeat at the same stage last season and the upcoming final against Inter Milan could now be the crowning glory of a magnificent treble.
