Real has been down in the aggregate at some point in the second leg of its ties in each of the knockout rounds so far.

As a Liverpool, I’m now terrified of Madrid in the final. My god.

This is one of the all-time great choke jobs. City have gone all Jean Van der Velde here.

Watching this nodding like "say what you will about old money, but at least it's not new money" as if I'm on that fucking Gilded Age show.

I'm trying to think what could make this any more bonkers and my only idea is Zinchenko ties it.

I'm looking forward to seeing how Pep can screw up the CL again next year after City add Haaland.

He’ll play Haaland at the 8 in a very clever tactical wrinkle.

Sterling having a tough time of it so far.

This isn’t on Pep. They had the lead in extra time and conceded 2 goals. It’s an epic collapse and will deserve all the ridicule it will receive but how on earth can Pep be responsible for this

Courtois needed every millimeter of his lanky ass frame to get that.

City does not do well when their opponents sit back with 6+ defenders
As Teddy has been saying, they don’t have a true 9 they can lob balls to. Grealish, Foden, or Sterling need to run at a defender or 3 and make something happen.

Not the first time today. That save on Grealish was huge.

Im slowly making peace with this. It’s an awful awful awful collapse which may derail the rest of the season but you almost can’t do anything about a situation like this. This is sports

And Sergio Ramos was the chief villain and he’s not there. But honestly, I think we’re all sick of LFC/MC at this point.
Yup. A Liverpool v Real Madrid final is a classic clash of European titans, with about 20 European Cup wins between them.

Citeh v Liverpool might feel like an FA Cup FInal
