On the morning of May 5, the second leg of the Champions League semi-final between Manchester City and Real Madrid took place in an unimaginable scene.
Manchester City lose to Real Madrid
A 4-3 win in the first leg helped City come into the game more positive. On the other side of the front line, Real Madrid did not appear to be in a hurry, deploying a position in favour of safety.
The careful play of both sides did not cause too much turmoil in the first half of the game.
Manchester City are still the better team and if Silva or Foden get it right, England will lead the first half.
In the second half, Manchester City continued to dominate. The ticket to the final appeared to be firmly in the hands of manager Guardiola when Mahrez gave the hosts the lead in the 73rd minute.
However, Real Madrid have shown that it is no coincidence that they have as many as 13 Champions League titles.
The Whites played hard, didn’t give up, and crazy things happened in the last few minutes.
In just 2 minutes of 90 and 90+1, substitute striker Rodrigo scored 2 goals in a row to help Real Madrid lead 2-1 and tie the total score 5-5 in 2 games.
The result forced both teams to go into overtime to decide the winner. In the 95th minute, Benzema took a penalty kick and successfully made the score 3-1.
The remaining time was not enough to help City score any more goals and had to accept a 3-1 defeat to look sadly at 6-5 on aggregate in the final.
So the final will be Liverpool vs Real Madrid on May 29.
