Real Madrid

The greatest night in the history of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu

A memorable comeback against Manchester City

Despite being down 1-0 against Manchester City and trailing 5-3 on aggregate with one minute to go, Real Madrid managed to complete another historic comeback as they clinched qualification to the Champions League final in Paris.

The win against Paris Saint-Germain and the comeback in the game against Chelsea might be inexplicable, but this one was Real Madrid‘s best night of all time at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Without forgetting the comebacks back in the 1980s or undermining the recent historic matches, the victory against Manchester City can’t be compared with any other.

When Rodrygo Goes equalised in the 89th minute, both the Sky Blues and Los Blancos felt that something was changing in the atmosphere, as the fans were pushing on Carlo Ancelotti‘s side from the stands

Veterans, youngsters and a cauldron

Real Madrid managed to make it to the Champions League final for the first time since 2018 and the fifth time in the last eight years.

Ancelotti opted for the experience of Luka ModricToni Kroos and Casemiro to start the game, but they all made way in the second half for Eduardo CamavingaMarco Asensio and Rodrygo.

Meanwhile, Fede Valverde was named in the starting line-up and featured for 123 minutes, while Jesus Vallejo had to come on in the second half of extra time to replace Eder Militao, who was dealing with some muscular issues.

All of this wouldn’t have been possible, however, without the help of the fans at the Bernabeu, which was buzzing on yet another Champions League night, as the home crowd believed in the comeback and helped the team exceed their limits.

Mbappe’s family will travel to Madrid next week

For a meeting over player’s image rights

Kylian Mbappe‘s family will reportedly travel to Madrid next week to meet with Real Madrid‘s leaders.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward has been strongly linked with a move to Los Blancos when his contract expires on June 30.

According to RMC Sport, this meeting will be over Mbappe‘s image rights in the event he decides to sign for Real Madrid this summer.

PSG’s final push to get Mbappe to renew

Mbappe‘s mother, Fayza Lamari, has this week been in Doha, where she has held various meetings with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

PSG are pressing ahead with their attempts to convince him to sign a new deal, and according to RMC Sport they are optimistic.

However, Mbappe‘s family want to listen to both sides to have all the information at their disposal so that the 23-year-old himself can make the final decision.

Real Madrid are also confident that they can secure the signing of a player who has made no secret of his dream to play for the club.

Mbappe‘s messaging in recent months has been ambiguous. Previously, his statements appeared to be a goodbye to PSG, but more recently he appears to have opened the door to a new contract.
