Real looked down and came out in a third straight draw by KO. While this is a team accustomed to extraordinary exploits, Wednesday's 

performance to secure a 3-1 win over City was good even by their own absurd standards. Riyad Marez, who led City 4-3 from the first game,

 looked to have secured his side's place in the final in Paris in the second half. However,  two goals from both teams in the 90th minute from

substitute Rodrigo turned things around and sent the game into extra time. In fact, at that time it felt like there would only be one winner.

Just three minutes after extra time, Karim Benzema – who, due to his own high standards, remained anonymous throughout the match 

was fouled in the penalty area by Ruben Diaz and fired home the penalty. This goal sealed a 6-5 aggregate win for Real.

No matter how deep the hole Real looks, the magic at the Bernabeu always seems to kill the team. Karim Benzema celebrates after scoring the winning goal.
