Incredible Champions League comeback as Karim Benzema penalty puts Spanish giants in the final vs Liverpool, Ancelotti blown away by ‘unbelievable’ win, Salah wants to settle ‘score’ with Real.
Real Madrid pulled off one of the greatest Champions League comebacks of all time to secure a place in the final against Liverpool.
Manchester City opened the scoring at the Bernabeu through Riyad Mahrez and looked certain to be heading to Paris, as they led 5-3 on aggregate with a minute to go of the semi-final second leg.
But two goals in a minute from substitute Rodrygo at the end of normal time sent the game to extra time.
Ruben Dias then fouled Karim Benzema in the box to gift Real Madrid a penalty. The Frenchman stepped up to score his 43rd goal of the season and win the tie for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
It was a sensational game and Real just don’t know when they are beaten, while Pep Guardiola was crestfallen as City’s long wait for European glory goes on.
