Real Madrid and Manchester City (hereinafter Man City) face off again for advancing to the final of the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (hereinafter referred to as the Champions) in the 2022-23 season.
While the two teams met in the semifinals for the second year in a row, Real Madrid headed to the final with a miraculous come-from-behind victory last season, and later defeated Liverpool in the final to lift the 14th big year in their career.
Man City, who made a big success of Elling Holland, a ‘monster striker’ who joined this season, wants to avenge last season’s elimination. Attention is focusing on whether Real Madrid will reach the final again, or whether Manchester City will succeed in advancing to the final for the second time in history.
Real Madrid and Manchester City created drama in the semi-finals last season. In the first leg, Manchester City, the home team, won 4-3 after a slugfest.
Also in the second leg, Man City scored the first goal and took a 5-3 lead on aggregate. However, with Rodrygo’s multi-goal just before the end of the second half and Karim Benzema’s penalty kick in extra time, the home team Real Madrid won the match by a combined score of 6-5.
Real Madrid, which has the strongest Champions DNA, is aiming for its 15th championship, and Man City, which is considered the strongest, but has no connection to winning the Champions League, challenges its first big year.
‘Traditional house’ Real Madrid has reached the Champions League final 17 times and won 14 of them. In particular, since taking the runner-up in 1981, they have advanced to the final eight times and have lifted trophies in all of them.
‘Strong’ Man City aims to advance to the final two seasons after the final in the 2020-21 season. Manchester City met Real Madrid twice (2015-16 season, 2021-22 season) in the Champions League semi-finals and were eliminated, and this time they want to go to the second final with revenge.
Haaland challenges Benzema’s record as top scorer in the Champions League last season with 15 goals. Haaland, who played 8 Champions League matches this season, is leading the league with 12 goals.
Will Holland, who has the explosive power to score 5 goals against Leipzig in the second leg of the round of 16, catch up with Benzema’s 15 goals? The record for most goals scored in a single Champions League season was 17 goals scored by Cristiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid in 2013-14.
