Former Manchester City striker and all-time top scorer Sergio Aguero was furious in City’s Champions League semi-final defeat by Real Madrid on Wednesday night.

City were just minutes away from reaching a second Champions League final in as many seasons in Madrid after Riyad Mahrez beat City 1-0 that night and in the final 20 minutes of the tie at the Estadio Bernabeu by a total of 5: 3 had put in the lead.

However, Brazil winger Rodrygo scored twice in the final minutes to win the second leg 2-1 and take Real into extra time, the result being 5-5 on aggregate. Just five minutes after extra time, Karim Benzema converted from the penalty spot for his 15th Champions League goal of the season in 11 games and secured Real’s place in the final.

City’s capitulation was reminiscent of defeat in 2016. Wednesday’s defeat marked the sixth anniversary that a Fernando own goal resulted in City losing 1-0 on aggregate at Real in the Champions League semifinals and what would have been missed been a first ever Champions League final.

Aguero, who featured in that 2016 loss, watched the game live on ESPN Star with former City and Argentina team-mate Carlos Tevez and Aguero didn’t hide his frustration when Sky Blues’ exit was confirmed when Benzema converted from the spot .

“Noooooo,” exclaimed Aguero as Dias made a buy-in for Benzema in the box before Benzema converted an extra-time penalty to seal Real’s win over City.

Will Manchester City still win the Premier League title this season? Share your opinion in the comment section.

City’s defeat by Real ended their hopes of reaching a second Champions League final ever and second in as many seasons. Last season, Kai Havertz sealed a 1-0 first-half win in Porto for English rivals Chelsea and their second-ever Champions League title.

Pep Guardiola’s side are still in the hunt for winning the Premier League this season. If so, it would be their sixth Premier League title and fourth under Guardiola, who also helped City win in the 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2020/21 seasons.

City are fighting for the title in a fierce head-to-head rivalry with Liverpool. The Sky Blues are currently a point above the Reds with just four games left in the season.

In the last four games of the Premier League season, City meet Newcastle United, Wolverhampton Wanderers, West Ham United and Aston Villa.

Liverpool meet Tottenham Hotspur, Villa, Southampton and Wolves in their last four league games.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are chasing an unprecedented quadruple. The Reds have already won the Carabao Cup, are fighting to win the league and are in the FA Cup and Champions League finals this month.
