Real Madrid vs Man City enters extra time

Real Madrid forward Rodrygo scored two late goals to send Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Manchester City at the Santiago Bernabeu to extra time.

City led 4-3 from the first leg and appeared to be heading to a second successive final when Riyad Mahrez struck on 73 minutes, but Rodrygo netted twice in as many minutes to level the tie at 5-5 on aggregate.

Line up

Real Madrid welcomed back Casemiro for the second leg of their Champions League semi-final against Manchester City on Wednesday.

Trailing 4-3 after a thrilling first leg, Madrid put the fit-again Casemiro straight back into their midfield, alongside Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Fede Valverde.

David Alaba’s calf injury meant Nacho Fernandez came into the defence as expected, with Karim Benzema leading the line again up front.

Kyle Walker returned at right-back for Manchester City, up against Madrid’s Vinicius Junior in his first appearance since April 13.
