Rodrygo scored two goals in two minutes to help Real Madrid produce one of the comeback football scores of the weekend in the Champions League. Riyadh Mahrez opened the scoring in the 73rd minute before Rodrygo equalized in the 90th minute. He then scored a minute later to send the tie into extra time before Karim Benzema scored the winner in the 95th minute from the penalty spot.
Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti: “I cannot say we are used to living this kind of life, but what happened tonight happened against Chelsea and also against PSG. If you have to say why it is the history of this club that helps us to keep going when it seems that we are gone. The game was close to finished and we managed to find the last energy we had. We played a good game against a strong rival. When we are able to equalize we had a psychological advantage in extra time. I have no time to think about this [losing the game]. It was difficult as City had control of the game but at the last opportunity, we were able to go to extra time. I am happy to be there in the final, in Paris against another great rival. We are used to it. It will be a fantastic game for football.”
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola: “We were close. We were close. But in the end, we could not reach it. It is simple. In the first half, we did not have the game, we were not good enough. But we did not suffer much. After we scored the goal we were better. We found our tempo and our game and the players were comfortable. It is not like in the last 10 minutes they attack and attack and you suffer.”
