Jose Mourinho's Real dominated much of the Group D clash, with Joe Hart keeping City in the game with three superb first-half saves, but substitute Edin Dzeko gave the Premier League champions a surprise lead in the 69th minute after he was put through by Yaya Toure.
City's lead lasted only seven minutes, however, with Hart finally beaten by Marcelo's deflected shot from outside the box.
Aleksandar Kolarov's inswinging free-kick re-established City's lead, but Karim Benzema equalised with three minutes remaining, before Ronaldo's 90th-minute shot found its way into the net past Vincent Kompany and Hart.
