Real Madrid beat Man City to reach the Champions League final
May 05, 2022
Real Madrid are through to the Champions League final after a remarkable comeback win over Man City.
Having lost the first leg, they beat City 3-1 in extra-time in this morning’s semi-final second-leg…to advance 6-5 on aggregate.
Rodrygo scored two late goals for Real to cancel out Riyad Mahrez’s opener for City, before Karim Benzema’s penalty secured the win for the Spanish side.
Real Madrid will now go on to face Liverpool in the final later this month…in what will be a repeat of the 2018 final.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid’s Carlo Ancelotti has entered the history books as the first manager to qualify for five Champions League finals.
This will be his second appearance in the final with Real …having also guided AC Milan to the title-decider on three occasions in the past.
The jersey worn by Argentina legend Diego Maradona when he scored the infamous Hand of God goal against England, is now the most expensive piece of sports memorabilia ever.
It was auctioned off for 7.1 million pounds, just slightly more than the previous record holder – which was an original signed manuscript of the Olympic manifesto…which was sold for 7.05 million back in 2019.
Jesse Lingard has reportedly made up his mind to leave Man United this summer, having struggled for game time over the past season.
Newcastle, Juventus and AC Milan are all said to be interested in the attacking midfielder.
