Real Madrid (hereafter referred to as Real) is happy just thinking about Children’s Day in 2022. A year later, we meet again with Manchester City (hereafter Man City), which was the current miracle victim.
Global sports media ‘ESPN’ shed light on the miracle Real made a year ago on the 5th (Korean time).
On May 5, 2022 (Korean time), Real won 3-1 come-from-behind victory against Manchester City in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) semifinals to extra time to advance to the final.
Prior to this match, Real’s chances of reaching the final were only 1%. Real lost 3-4 away to Man City in the first leg of the semifinals. In the second game, the defeat deepened as Riyad Mahrez conceded in the 28th minute of the second half.스포츠토토
Real created a miracle just before the end of the second half. Rodrygo scored consecutive goals in the 45th minute of the second half and in the 1st minute of extra time to turn the game around. Karim Benzema scored the winning goal from a penalty kick in the 5th minute of extra time to advance to the final with a dramatic 3-1 win. Following this momentum, they won the championship by winning the final against Liverpool.
The two teams will meet again after a year in the finals. This matchup also has a high chance of winning Man City.
Real have been sluggish enough to fall to third place in the league recently. Nevertheless, it is noteworthy whether he will relive the experience of a year ago and approach the championship with the finals.
