'God come down and explain' – Spanish press hail Real Madrid's 'miracle' Champions League semi-final win over Man City05/05/2022
REAL MADRID'S epic Champions League semi-final victory over Manchester City has left the Spanish press stunned.
Carlo Ancelotti's side looked to be crashing out of the European Cup after Riyad Mahrez put the Citizens 5-3 up on aggregate in the 73rd minute.
But Los Blancos yet again produced another miracle comeback at the Bernabeu, just as they had done in the previous rounds against Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.
Super-sub Rodrygo scored twice in injury time, before French marksman Karim Benzema grabbed his 43rd goal of the campaign in all competitions.
The 34-year-old tucked home a penalty in extra-time – his 15th strike in tournament this season – to set up a final clash against 2018 opponents Liverpool.
Boss Ancelotti broke down in tears following the incredible win, as he eyes up a fourth Champions League crown in management.
