Real Madrid 3 - Manchester City 1: The Perfect Love Story || "This is the greatness of Real Madrid"

Ancelotti, waving his arms towards the stands after the 1-1 draw, summed up another episode in the greatest love story that football has ever known.

When Orsato whistled for the break, Casemiro and Karim Benzema met on the way to the dressing room tunnel. And they smiled. When Rodrygo made it 1-1 as the clock approached the 90th minute, Carlo Ancelotti waved his arms up and down at the crowd. He gave no directions. He didn't speak. He only shouted towards the sky of Chamartín. And Chamartin responded. "That this is Madrid !", It was heard between the seats of the Bernabéu . Rodrygo became the first footballer to achieve a double in injury time in a Champions League tieand the mystique of the greatest love relationship that football has ever known did the rest.

"Another magical night of the Kings of Europe", prayed the tifo of the stands in the previous one, with Benzema like Caesar asking for war. And «We are the Kings of Europe !» shouted the Bernabéu with the final whistle, at which point the eleven Manchester City players knelt on the grass of the white coliseum. The madness. Ancelotti, becoming the only coach to reach five Champions League finals, applauded the fans while he tried to prevent tears from flooding his face.

Asterix's End

His resurrection on the bench has given the fifth continental final to Madrid's golden generation, a victory that began before the initial whistle, when CarlettoHe made his players see all the comebacks they had made so far in the season. « Eight. And the video ended with a sentence: 'One more is missing'", said the Italian.


"The players are my friends," the coach hesitated before the television. A phrase that is not far from reality. Carletto is a coach, but also a colleague and psychologist with a backbone that has been able to spread the faith and mystique of this indescribable relationship to the young people who have come to the Madrid dressing room in recent years. " This is incredible, there is no way to explain this," declared Casemiro, who was trying to summarize the season: "The great virtue of this year and of this club is not giving up and fighting until the end."

The Brazilian suffered on the bench alongside Modric and Kroos while Camavinga and Valverderuled the duel. Off the field Benzema also saw the end, whom the final whistle found in a solitary celebration on the grass. He raised his finger to the sky and got excited looking at the stands. A few meters away, Vinicius and Rodrygo hugged each other on their knees, Modric followed the fans singing the classic « This way! A) Yes! That's how Madrid wins » and Nacho, who finished with the captain's armband on his arm, comforted the City players one by one.

Ancelotti's coaching staff surrounded their leader and started a huddle in which the blanket was saved for the hypothetical victory in Paris, while the rest of the squad jumped 'into the pool' in front of the Animation Stand , the same one that had started the applause after Mahrez 0-1.
