Manchester City led 2-1 with three minutes remaining in today's Champions League showdown. Let that sink in for a moment. Heading into the 87th minute, City had the game locked. Or at least that’s what we thought until Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo took control of the action.
In the 87th minute, with his team in desperate need of an equalizer, Benzema made a nifty move at the near post to knot the score at two all. Then, in the 90th minute, Ronaldo did what Ronaldo does – he knocked home the ultimate game-winner like it was just another goal.
A heartbreaker for City, obviously, but a huge win for Jose Mourinho and his group.
