Football fans were left amazed at what they had seen when Real Madrid beat Man City 3-1 in a thrilling Champions League semi-final in Spain on Wednesday night.
At the start, Manchester City went into the match 4-3 up, and during the game scored first, making the aggregate at that stage 5-3.
Real Madrid then needed to score twice to draw the game, or three times to win.

But, it was around the 90th minute in the game, when Rodrygo scored twice in two minutes!
The teams played an additional half-hour of extra-time, leaving fans on the edge of their seats.

Manchester City seemed to be falling apart when Karim Benzema’s penalty put the Spanish team into the final.
Its bad luck combined with a weak mentality as soon as rodrygo scored it was like we completely crumbled

Manchester City has never won this competition. Over the last few years, they’ve been consistently getting into the same stage – looking like they’re finally going through as the strongest team – and yet, they keep failing in the final hurdle.
Pep Guardiola’s teams are generally the ones who take the trophy, but he wasn’t successful with Manchester City’s semi-final this year.
