Champions League: Manchester City Teaches European Champions A Lesson And Joins Inter In Final

Must Read

Manchester City has qualified for its second Champions League final by defeating the defending champion Real Madrid. On June 10, the Cityzens will face Inter Milan, who beat AC Milan in the semi-final.

Manchester City dominated the first few minutes of the match and had the first clear chance with a shot from Rodri that went just wide of Courtois’ goal (8th). City did not give their opponents a chance to breathe and came close to opening the score via a close-range header from Haaland that was saved at the last minute by Courtois (13th). The Red Devil made another of his trademark saves a few minutes later from another header by the Norwegian giant (21st).

However, Real finally gave in when Bernardo Silva’s shot from a Kevin De Bruyne assist put United on the right track (23rd, 1-0). Just after the half-hour mark, Toni Kroos came close to equalizing but his shot hit the bar for Ederson (35th) and on the next play, Bernardo Silva scored twice to put Madrid on their feet (37th, 2-0).

After the break, David Alaba gave Real a great chance with a free kick but his floating shot was deflected by Ederson (51st). Haaland, served on a perfect backheel from Gundogan, was stopped by a solid Courtois who kept his team from sinking (74th). Militao put an end to all suspense at the quarter-hour mark with an autobut on an Akanji header that sent City into the final (76th, 3-0). Alvarez then won his one-on-one with Courtois to put the icing on the cake (90th+1, 4-0).

The great craftsman of Manchester City’s lesson. The Portuguese international was a constant threat to Camavinga with his movements. Inspired on the technical level, the former Monaco player cracked the Courtois wall by opening the score with a shot in the top corner. He was always in the right place and even scored twice with a subtle header after Güngodan’s attempt was blocked by Militao.
