If Rodrygo and Benzema were fundamental in the attack and goals, Courtois was from another world. At the end of the first extra period, Fernandinho had an unbeatable chance to score what would have been the 3-2 of the game, but Courtois managed to move the ball just enough to avoid another goal in the duel between Real Madrid vs Manchester City for the semifinals of the Champions League.
From the right wing Sterling shot the center that crossed the entire Madrid area and where Fernandinho was waiting ready. However, the Belgian goalkeeper managed to ‘scratch’ the ball and move it just to bother the midfielder, who finished off the field off the pitch.
Real Madrid vs Manchester City: what’s coming
After the end of the Champions League semi-final bracket, each team will once again focus on their respective local leagues, although in the case of Real Madrid, just to meet the schedule as they won the title last weekend.
However, Ancelotti’s men still have a very tough test this Sunday in LaLiga, when they face Atlético de Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano in another edition of the Madrid derby.
For its part, Manchester City is fighting hand in hand for the leadership of the Premier League with Liverpool, which is just one point ahead in first place. Guardiola’s men will host Newcastle United on Sunday.
