Lionel Messi, a forward for Paris Saint-Germain, has reacted to Real Madrid’s triumph over Manchester City.
Sergio Aguero, Messi’s former teammate, verified the tale while watching the match on a Twitch livestream with Messi and Carlo Tevez. After Benzema scored Real Madrid’s third goal, Messi said the game had to be a joke, according to the Argentine.
After Real Madrid’s third goal, Leo [Messi] texted me: “It’s a joke, it’s not conceivable.”
Manchester City advanced to the second leg of the semi-final match after winning the first leg 4-3. However, two goals by Rodrygo in the final minute of the game forced extra time, with Karim Benzema’s penalty in the first half of extra time ensuring the Cityzens’ elimination.
