Big night of Champions. Today the pass to the quarterfinals was played between Manchester City against Sporting Lisbon and Real Madrid against PSG.
The English did not go beyond the draw against the Portuguese, but the advantage of five goals from the first leg made the tie practically insurmountable for Sporting. Guardiola gave rest to some players, especially his star De Bruyne, which caused the citizen to lose some gunpowder. Now the English await a rival knowing that they are one of the favorites for the title.
But all the lights were on today at the Bernabéu. The tie between PSG and Real Madrid was open, and although the French had been far superior in the first leg, no one could give the Whites up for dead in their fetish competition. And they did not disappoint.
Real Madrid started the match very well, with their own initiative and arrivals, but PSG was no less and also created a lot of danger. A disallowed first goal by Mbappé frightened the whites, who shortly after would see how this time if he scored legally and put the French two goals ahead.
Even so, the whites did not lose faith and with more heart than football, they managed to reach the rival area. In the second half, an error by Donnarumma gave the Whites a goal and put them in the tie. The French got back and allowed Madrid to feel comfortable, which made them score the goal that tied the tie. But it wasn’t going to end here, a minute later, a mistake by Marquinhos caused Benzema to score the hat-trick and confirm the comeback for the Whites. Real Madrid will be in the next round.
