Riyad Mahrez had the chance to score the third goal for Manchester City vs. Real Madrid at the Eithad Stadium and Pep Guardiola’s bitterness was remarkable.
The merengue team went lively at halftime, but as soon as they returned from the break, Riyad Mahrez culminated a ride with a shot at the post and the rebound was finished off by Foden to the body of Carvajal under the posts (49).
The English attacker made up for himself shortly after finishing off a cross from Fernandinho (53) to make it 3-1, which lasted just two minutes.
Manchester City vs. Real Madrid: ‘citizen’ victory
Manchester City took the lead to reach the Champions League final by beating Real Madrid 4-3, who is still in contention with a brace from Karim Benzema, this Tuesday in the first leg of the semi-finals of the continental tournament.
The English team went ahead with goals from Kevin de Bruyne with a header (2), Gabriel Jesús (11), Phil Foden (53) and Bernardo Silva (74), but Karim Benzema’s brace (11) and Vinicius’ goal (55), allow Real Madrid to leave Manchester alive.
The Franco-Brazilian connection allows Real Madrid to maintain hope, which was slow to enter the match, drowned out by pressure from City.
