Champions League: Why Man City Lost to Real Madrid – Guardiola

The reason why Manchester City lost against Real Madrid in yesterday's Champion's League game has been revealed.

According to manager Pep Guardiola, the unpredictable nature of football made them lose after Real Madrid produced a stunning late fightback to reach the final.

AFP reported that City led 1-0 on the night at the Santiago Bernabeu and 5-3 on aggregate heading into the 90th minute before two goals in 88 seconds from substitute Rodrygo sent the game to extra time.

Karim Benzema then slotted home the winner from the penalty spot to send the 13-time winners into the final against Liverpool on May 28 in Paris.

City on the other hand are still waiting to be crowned European champions despite the billions invested by the club’s Abu Dhabi-based owners over the past 14 years.

Guardiola’s men were left to rue a series of missed chances both in the first leg at the Etihad and after Riyad Mahrez had fired them into the lead 17 minutes from time.
