PEP IS SOMEHOW GROWING EVEN MORE BALD AS WE SPEAK
Actually growing hair back so those can turn gray as well
GROWING MORE FRAUDULENT AS WE SPEAK
“Why do I even bother!?” - Pep, probably
didn't even try some avant-garde 9000 iq tactics this time, and still punished
If they get to the final from here I can’t wait to see how he overthinks it
He'll throw out the inverted Christmas tree
Playing a 1234 with Ederson as a sweeper would be extremely exciting tbf.
Funnily enough that really is Pep's default formation on possession with inverted full back lol
He looked close to a mental breakdown for real, no pun intended
Would totally believe he has some feelings about going out like this to Real Madrid of any team, can't imagine he hates losing to a team more than them.
More than you believe
Incoming 200m for the next transfer window
That's only for Haaland.
Price did drop a few days ago.
I'm ashamed of myself for laughing at this
Took me a second..
what's the joke?
His agent who was getting 75 million of the transfer fee passed away a few days ago.
Buys Kane and Haaland then takes them both out to put midfielders in the finals
He must be finishing water bottles left and right rn.
MERCEDES CHANGING THEIR NAME TO BENZEMA
The death of Real Madrid has been greatly exaggerated
Lol at the fans who left early. Don't even feel bad for them. What a comeback.
Koala can survive on just leaves, this people are way dumber.
anyone who left early tonight is even worse than the ppl who left the Etihad when City were 2-1 down vs QPR in 2012.
Some of our fans left at HT in Istanbul...
I don‘t understand how fans can leave early during important matches like these.
During a regular matchday when it‘s crystal clear how the game will end 5 minutes before the final whistle? Okay.
But not when there‘s still a possibility.
Meh, leaving the game at any point is a bit sad to me. Like, I’m not here just to see the result, otherwise I would stay at home and check it on my phone. It’s also the atmosphere, celebrating with the players after the game, having a pint and something to eat, chatting with my mates, go pitch side while the stadium clears etc etc. I don’t want to go to the stadium to spend the last 15 minutes of the game thinking about my travel back lol.
I get what you’re saying, but if you go week in week out for years then you do start thinking about your travel back around 20 minutes to go lol. I don’t personally dip before the end of the game (unless we’re 2 goals up or down, it’s a premier league game and I have work tomorrow and it’s already 10pm and I won’t be back till midnight) but I completely get why people do.
It’s a lot of travel, hassle etc and if you wait those extra 5-10 minutes it can cost you an hour sometimes if you’re unlucky with trains/you drive.
Having said that I wouldn’t dream of missing a minute of the last game of the season, a champions league tie etc. even if my team are getting bodied I’ll still watch and shout the whole way though because it’s not everyday you see games like that (Arsenal fan, been a while for us on the champs league front…)
Fans who leave early piss me off so fucking much
I've done it before, midweek game and having to catch the last train.
But not leaving a fucking champions league semi final...
last train is last train mate
I dont care if we’re getting smacked. Im getting my moneys worth lol
they are jumping off bridges as we speak
Benzema will be there to catch them with his big, manly arms.
"We've still got to show you something" he'll say and then score a Hatrick in the final.
they're like the phoenix bird , they keep rising from their ashes
call an ambulance
but not for me!
This is beyond explanation. Football is fucking crazy
How can you watch this game and not fall in love with the sport?
Be City fan
Luckily not many of them
Be a Manchester City supporter
BENZ BEST IN CLASS
WHAT A GAME
I LOVE FOOTBALL!
THIS KILLS PEP
ref had such a "bitch please" face pointing at the spot hahaha
[hahahaha I noticed the same thing](https://i.ibb.co/YpcrmQY/03514900-6012-4745-8-A6-A-4-C77-E1200851.jpg)
Lol as sure as eggs for him
Think that might be the fastest pen I have ever seen given, but its not like Diaz even tried to hide it.
[THE DON SENDS HIS REGARDS](https://i.imgur.com/hcwJBll.jpg)
Smoking on that City pack
Smoking that Oil Shiekh pack
Its some wicked gas.
Is there an album cover version?
good Carlo, mad City?
That goes hard af
Madrid is on the most entertaining CL run of all time
I think i have aged about 53 years since the knockouts started
Seriously, 3 ties in a row they won in the most RM way imaginable
They literally havent been favourites vs anyone in the knockout stage and thats kinda what the UCL is all about :)
The PSG “super team”.
Revenge against the team who knocked them out last year and current trophy holders.
And the manager they most want to defeat of any in the world.
All come from behind, insanely dramatic finishes.
Salah: I want to play Real Madrid
Benzema: Okay mate
It’s just so much funnier to see city not get to final.
That's the best feeling tbh. Take that 538. I am sure City is the undisputed favourite for the next year too.
Can't wait to see Haaland looking despondent as City go out in the semis next year
Where were you when City was kill?
I was at home when Benzema rang
Pep is kill
KINGS OF EUROPE
I can’t believe my eyes
Babe wake up it's a champions league city collapse
ah yes the annual collapse
They do this every year!
Yawn. Been there. Done that.
Ederson was expecting a panenka
Wouldn't you? It's Big Dick Benz!
u/psgacademy in shambles
We exchange games in the Champions League.
Absolutely incredible. Proper CL football
Why would they want to change this competition at all? Been delivering insane cup drama for years and years now
some people don’t like this sport btw
I don’t think I like it
Your username has never been more relevant
Pep since 2013 *
As a Ferrari fan, I understand this very well.
Big brain move by Ancelotti -- Wait until City sub off their offensive players, then score 2 goals.
The Don sent his regards
Bayern 1999 🤝 Atlético 2014
Throwing it all away after leading in the 90th minute
THE BEAUTIFUL GAME
I'm scared as shit now. At least we could rely on City's naivety in CL, now? We have to go against the devils themselves?
I'm very scared of that Liverpool side too if it's any consolation
0-0 FT incoming
Own goal 91 min.
Alisson equaliser 93 min
Even the use of "low-key" is an insult against a team like Madrid who keeps putting out the world's best teams round after round.
…you’re low key scared of the champions of Spain with the hottest player in the world?
And he’s pretty good at football, too!
One leg tie favors you over them
They seem to just wake up in the second half of games though it’s nuts at this point
And if this result confirms they'll rest their players until the game
Yeah, Real Madrid has already won the League. If City goes out, City has way more rest time than Liverpool who has FA Cup in between. If Liverpool are trying to win the quadruple, they have way less rest time than both City and Madrid.
Will be hard. Liverpool is an outstanding team but think about it. Real Madrid wrapped up their league weeks in advance, and they have gone through PSG, Chelsea, and Man City, with all 3 comeback to win these games
This year we figured out the black magic doesn't disappear with Zidane
Remember La Décima? Zidane was there with Ancelotti, where do you think Zidane learned such black magic?
I am not even surprised anymore lmao
This is scripted no way
Never count out the Madrid plot armor
You what ever that trispool sheriff did to madrid was on hind sight wrong. Black magic stuff this.
Actually it was the 4-0, gave us that second wind.
You know Barca woke up then and went to sleep while, we just woke up.
ONE OF US
ONE OF US
In the meantime Carlo still 🤨🤨🤨
Only he could remain calm with the 🤨 when we were awarded a game winning penalty lol
10 knockout round goals in 1 season is fucking ridiculous.
Never lost his poise, even with a few minutes left of regular time.
That's the record, he equaled CR7 record of 10 goals in knockout stage.
— Carlo’s tactics
I'ma riot if he isn't as good with France. Nothing less is expected than 15 goals during the WC.
Then do it again next season in Madrid
He is inevitable.
Im sorry little one
This must be the most entertaining CL semi of all time. Feels like a 13 year old's Real Madrid self-insert fanfic.
Probably written from Rodrygo's perspective.
'Yes and then I get subbed in late. And in the dying minutes of the game when it all seems lost I score a goal .. 2 goals! With like a minute in between just back to back.'
His grand kids all like 🙄🙄🙄 suuuuure I bet
I mean PSG and Chelsea matches just happened recently too.
Imagine not liking football
Well, I fucking hate it lately
I’ll take all the dull scoreless matches in the world if we keep getting games like this.
ur welcome my dude, we did our best this season in terms of dull matches
Seeing City fall apart in the one competition they've pumped billions into the club to win is so satisfying.
Hahahahaha I love this sport!!!
my guy posting before its even in the net
Champions League Benzema always delivers
This will get lost in the thread but imagine wearing that god awful puma kit in a semi final
insane mentality by madrid
City are now bottling the champions League, as is tradition, what a glorious day for our country and indeed the world.
I might be terrified of Madrid, but losing a CL final to hand City their first would be unbearable. Not to mention it's fun to play someone else for a change.
CL Final Real Madrid are another beast, RIP.
Same animal, different beast
Fuck around and find out
WE’RE ALL LIVING IN REAL MADRIDS WORLD
Lmao City in the mud
Man city: I have dominated in both games tactically and in every stat possible
Real Madrid: Pl0t aRmOur gOEs BRRRRRRR
They had far worse xCojones tbh
REAL MADRID THE BUTCHER OF OIL FC.
In my humble opinion, scrapping the away goals rule is the best thing Uefa has done in years
Absolutely, away goals encouraged anti football performances
95th goal in the semi's- welcome to the club City!
Now to bottle the league
COMPLETE CHOKE JOB!
This is all Ramos' fault. That fucking goal in 2014 instilled something in them
This is fucking mad
Grandchildren won't believe this.
We're close to completing the Oil Club Trident
PUTAIN JE T'AIME KARIM
Must be nice to be a Real Madrid fan
ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED???
This is the most Madrid thing of all time
What a fucking match
Benzema has made Ederson his dog
