Real Madrid scrape past City to set-up Paris final Clash with Liverpool

Real Madrid booked their place in the final of the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night, after beating Manchester City to go through.

Benzema scored a spotkick in extra time to set-up a final Clash with Liverpool.

Even though the game ended in a stalement, after substitute Rodrygo came on and scored two goals in stoppage time to draw the game level on aggregate, Madrid found the net in extra time through a Benzema penalty to make it 6:5 on aggregate.

Mahrez thought he had won it for City

Riyad Mahrez broke the deadlock in the 73rd after a first half that saw Guardiola’s men restrict Madrid to zero shots on goal.

The English side thought they had done enough to win it, only for the 19 year old, Rodrygo to come off the bench and score two in less than two minutes.

Pep was in shock.

The final set to hold on 28th May in Paris will now be a repeat of the 2018 Kiev final that saw the Spanish side beat Liverpool 3:1 to claim the trophy.
