Real Madrid meets Liverpool in Paris
Yesterday we wrote an article about Liverpool versus Villarreal. The Reds from Liverpool managed to eliminate Villarreal in the semi-final of the UEFA Champions League. Today was another Premier League versus La Liga semi-final in the Champions League. In this article we talk about the way Real Madrid managed to beat Manchester City.
Exciting battle in Etihad Stadium
The first leg in this tie was one for the history books. Manchester City took an early lead, got a two goals lead three times, but in the end Real Madrid managed to get it back to just one goal. The match in Manchester ended in a 4-3 victory for Manchester City, but it should have been a much bigger advantage.
Wonder of Bernabeu
The second leg in this tie, it took a lot longer before the first goal was scored. It was Riyad Mahrez who opened the score in the 73rd minute. This goal gave Manchester City a two-goal lead in the tie. It looked to be done, but one thing we learned about Madrid this season, they won’t give up. With goals in the 90th and 92nd minute, Rodrygo got his team back in the tie. All of a sudden the score was exactly the same as in the first tie, only this time in advantage of Real Madrid. In the second minute of extra time, Karim Benzema got fouled in the box and the referee gave a penalty. Just like in the first leg of this tie, Karim Benzema grabbed the ball and netted it from the spot. This was the final goal in this tie, which means Real Madrid will go to Paris to play Liverpool in the Champions League final.
