This work at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu is well on its way, with solid foundations. Otherwise the stadium would collapse after the craziest night Real Madridhistory.
Yes, the craziest. The legend of the stage fright was born in the 1980s, but that was in the UEFA Cup, but entering the Champions League final with two goals after the 90th minute? This generation of players went straight into club history after a feat that was almost out of reach of even Real Madrid.
Remember the names Karim Benzema, Rodrygo Goes, Fede Valverde, Edurardo Camavinga, Nacho, Marco Asensio, Thibaut Courtois, Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao and Ferland Mendyplayers who have achieved the impossible. Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Luka Modrić, who played a great game and didn’t deserve to leave the elimination game on their shoulders, were no longer on the pitch. But that is what is bothering Real Madrid.
The achievement is so great that it is unfair to single out one player from another. But Rodrygo, who scored both goals in the referee’s compensation, will never forget this evening. Neither will Benzema, who scored a great penalty. AND Camavinga? Getting to know him again was crucial. Fede is said to be still running.
Real Madridwith all its history behind it, punished Pep Guardiolais stinginess. 90 minutes into the game, they were able to reduce the deficit to 2 – 0 after 80 minutes. In the end, they paid for it.
Rodrygo, what a look!
The Brazilian is going straight into the history of Real Madrid as a player who started one of the craziest nights at the Bernabeu lately.
Rodrygo’s two goals lifted 60,000 people to their feet during the final few minutes of the game and the entire overtime. As if it were a Turkish stadium, the Real Madrid-City area came to life with the fans on their feet.
There is little talk about Real Madrid fans, and when it is said, then it is to criticize them, to describe them as cold and too demanding. This season, however, they are credited with destroying all the stories.
Always in tune with the team, the fans have created magical and unrepeatable moments that will take players a long time to forget. After the celebrations in Cibeles, in this Champions League match the area around the Bernabeu was completely white in an attempt to take the team to the finals.
Only 60,000 people entered the stadium, and when the bus arrived, there were almost 150,000, according to police.
What happened in the stands is now part of the club’s legend. It never sounded like that at the Bernabeu.
What a penalty, Karime
Benzema took responsibility from the white spot. Who else! He was slow in taking penalties, and the psychological war with Ederson was huge.
The two of them clashed, in a fight of maximum tension. In the first game, he scored a goal. In the other, quietly, to his right, in his least safe area. Let’s give him the Ballon d’Or.
That Jose Bordalas did what Pep did …
The city is wasting a lot of time. They did it against Atletico Madrid and repeated it at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Pep Guardiola’s men got on the nerves of the Bernabeu and Real Madrid players with their successive waste of time. Yes, it is legitimate, but some are constantly standing out because of that, and others …
City’s game was perfectly coordinated. However, in the end, they paid for it.
Courtois again impressive
Real Madrid has the best goalkeeper in the world. People will remember Rodrygo’s goals, but when Madrid lost 1-0, Thibaut Courtois kept his team on their feet with two stunning defenses. Without him, madness would never have come.
King Luka Modric and nothing else
How lucky that Real Madrid had Luka Modrić, undoubtedly one of the best players in the history of the club, a player who defined the whole generation of Real Madrid fans with his quality, way of life and dedication.
It was exciting to see him beat Kevin De Bruyne in the first half and set the Bernabeu on fire. A player who should retire with the club even when he wants to. Clean Real Madrid.
