Real Madrid produced an astonishing late comeback against Manchester City to set up a Champions League final against Liverpool, as Karim Benzema's extra-time penalty winner gave them an incredible 6-5 aggregate win over City.

The 13-time winners were trailing 5-3 on aggregate heading into the 90th minute at the Bernabeu after Riyad Mahrez had given City the lead (73).

But two goals in two minutes from substitute Rodrygo dramatically made it 2-1 (5-5 on aggregate) to Real in the 91st minute to send the tie to extra-time. Real's epic fightback was then complete in the fifth minute of extra-time as Benzema scored a penalty after being brought down by Ruben Dias.

I Call True: Ah man, City threw this away, it was theirs for the taking and they caved at the literal last minute. It was a great game and we've now got Real Madrid Vs Liverpool in the final which promises to be an absolute belter!
