Breaking: Manchester City Out of Champions League

Manchester City have been knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid after conceding two goals in the dying seconds of the game.

Pep Guardiola’s side looked comfortable after a Riyad Mahrez goal put the visitors 1-0 up and 5-3 up on aggregate in their semi-final.

But in the final seconds of normal time, Brazilian Rodrygo set up a grandstand finish cutting the aggregate deficit to 5-4.

More drama was to follow as Rodrygo headed another in stoppage time to level the tie at 5-5.

And in the opening minutes of the first half, Karim Benzema completed the incredible comeback scoring a penalty to lead the game 3-1 and 6-5 on aggregate.

Real will now face Liverpool in the final at the Stade de France in Paris on 28 May.

The final was originally scheduled to take place at the Krestovsky Stadium (Gazprom Arena) in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

However, in February, the venue was changed due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

This will be the third time that the Stade de France has hosted the Champions League final, following the 2000 and 2006 events.
