Real Madrid on Wednesday beat Manchester City 3-1 and 6-5 on aggregate to reach the UEFA Champions League final at the Santiago Bernabeu.

It was a superb comeback for Madrid after narrowly escaping a loss from City twice, which has turned out to be a historic result for the Spanish club.

City’s Mahrez got the opener before late Rodrygo double sends tie into extra time, which Madrid players took advantage of with a win.

Benzema’s penalty sealed the final win for Madrid after a 3-1 on the night.

The win for Madrid means they will face Liverpool in Paris on 28 May.
