The football world saw the first semi-final of the Champions League last night, where Real Madrid drew with Manchester City at home. Although Vinícius sent his team into the lead in the first half, Kevin de Bruyne equalised in the second act with an uncatchable bomb. But television footage reveals that the Belgian international’s goal may not have stood.
Real parted amicably with City after a great night of football
We have had a great footballing feast. A gala evening of the best football in the world brought the first Champions League semi-final. In it, last year’s winner and specialist in this competition, Real Madrid, faced a rampant Manchester City for tickets to Istanbul.
The match itself then proved a real treat for the eye of all football fans. With quality at both individual and team level, many experts agreed that this was an early final of the millionaire’s competition.
Although the opening of the match belonged more to Pep Guardiola’s charges, Real Madrid struck first. Camavinga, after a beautiful combination with Modric, crossed the field, passed the ball to Vinícius before the level of the big whitewash, and the young Brazilian opened the scoring with a beautiful shot from outside the box.
But the match was controversial, de Bruyne’s goal perhaps should not have stood
The goal gave Los Blancos the confidence they needed and by the break it was Carlo Ancelotti’s selection that set the pace of the game.
Even after the change of sides, it was last year’s competition winner who permanently threatened the opponents’ goal, but with 23 minutes left in normal time, Kevin de Bruyne’s incredible shot against the foot decided the division of points.
Despite the first-class standard of football, the match will be marked by controversy. The Belgian international’s goal might not have stood. the 3D technology of the TV station beIN Sports revealed that in the situation in front of de Bruyne’s goal, the ball was probably out of play and Carlo Ancelotti’s players should have played an own goal.
The Italian strategist drew the attention of the referees to the situation in front of the City goal to check the regularity of the goal using video. However, VAR does not have similar technology and Ancelotti was shown a yellow card for his protests. A beautiful evening of football leaves a bitter taste in the mouth of the fans.
